Left 4 Dead 2 - FREE ON STEAM

Recommended Posts

Try this link guys..

 

steam://install/550

 

Edit: interesting.. that link worked for me once but now it's not. Well if you copy that link and paste it into your browser (I'm using chrome at the moment) then it should open the steam install dialog.

 

This worked for me however I'm told it might be a trial version of some sort. Although it tells me the acquisition method is Christmas 2013 steam store.

@trag3dy - When I click that link, it tries loading the L4D2 page in Steam but fails with Error Code: -101.

Agreed, but too many times I've been votekicked for "only hitting 3 survivors as the boomer" "only clocked 60 hours on the game" "failing to get the jockey off a teammate within 3 seconds".

 

Feels like too many versus players are convinced they are a mortal form of Gabe Newell in L4D2, and with no scoreboards or stats to prove them wrong act like they're the best. 

 

Not playing with them might be for the better. I know I wouldn't put up with those morons. Sure, I might've missed everyone while charging just ONCE - big freakin' deal!

 

... and in my books, hitting three survivors as a boomer is already good enough :p

Hasn't this been on cheap sales enough times over the past 4 years that enough people should already have it and not bring down steam?

Apparently not. I never bought it because I felt the game should have been an expansion for L4D 1 and not a full priced release.

Good to know, I would edit the first post to include that info but time-limited editing and all says "NO!".

Not really, the game is only free until 10 AM PST tomorrow, it's more similar to when they made Portal (the first one) free for a day (or a few hours or whatever it was) when they released it on Mac/Linux or whatever. After that, the price tag came back.

 

Though I am disappointed that TF2 went free to play the way it did, I think it was a great move from a business standpoint for Valve, but they should have offered something more than what was given to those who purchased it before it went free (though I do not regret my purchase....I racked up almost 1500 hours in TF2 before it went F2P). Right now you can get the same features/advantages by spending $0.49 in the TF2 store as someone who bought the game retail for $20 or whatever.

 

I guess I can't fault them too much though, I was one of the lucky ones who got a pretty low numbered soldier medal (#558) that I sold for $20 and bought like 3 games out of that money.

Hello,

Got it to work :) Downloading now :)

As a side topic, can you move Steam games from one account to another?

Nope, the best you can do is send a Gift copy of a game from one account to another, but you can only get gifts when actually purchasing the game, you don't get the option with free games.

Left 4 Dead is the very best CO OP game I've ever experienced. It's a must play for zombie fans and those who enjoy playing games with their friends. YOU MUST PLAY THIS GAME. 10 out of 10, 5 out of 5 stars, MASTERPIECE....

Probably overloaded - I'm only pulling 2 MB/second (Windows 8.1 ProWMC/Steam/0303 EST - pretty much oh-dark-hundred on the day after Christmas); fortunately, both the Windows and SteamOS sides are using the same Steam account - as long as SteamPlay is supported by the game - and it is in L4D2's case - the OS it is installed FIRST on covers them all; yes, the same applies to Steam for OS X.  (Therefore "cha-CHUNG".)
