For those currently playing, or those who plan to play, Valve’s newly released downloadable content The Passing for Left 4 Dead 2, you’re in for a lot of treats (at least, that’s what our resident zombie hater Jeff Kanjanapangka tells me). One such treat is that you’ll finally discover the unfortunate fate of one of your favorite zombie-killing characters…Frank West?!
The leather jacketed photojournalist from Capcom’s Dead Rising apparently found his way into the L4D universe, and saw fit to scrawl his last moments on a pool hall wall for anyone who cared to take the time to read it. And his message was this:
“Otis. Out of film. No helicopter. Zombies are too fast. Not going to make it.”
Jeff admitted to me that after he saw the message, he wept openly at his desk for a solid hour. Bit of a strong reaction if you ask me, but that’s Jeff for you. Tip of the hat to Valve for always going that extra mile to make their work just that much more special. Love it.
