    That actually looks pretty cool :) But I wonder what engine they will use and if there will be community mods like Sourcemod. If so then this would be great although it remains to be seen if Overkill can create the same gameplay experience as Valve.

    Agree... good find Horama this looks promising, was a fan of Starbreeze way back for Enclave & the 2 Chronicles of Riddick, Butcher Bay & Dark Athena.
    They also worked on Syndicate & Payday 2.
    Seems they bought the Valhalla engine a few years back but recently said that The Walking Dead is Unreal Engine with Valhalla as a plugin.
    Overkill is Starbreeze's main studio & has 2 titles in production.
    They've also said they're aggressively looking to take market share in game development.
    Who knows this could even get Valve to remove the virtual headset from their :smiley-talk034: and release L4D3

    Good information slater , i never understand they have one most selling game with L4D2 and only try really something was evolve ( the game) only on AAA , coop survival zombie game is kind of game when player are loyal
    i hear rumor of source engine 3 since long time but see nothing , yeah true may be valve going finally understand they need a 3 at each game they do .

    Soooo, whatever happened to Steam works and l4d3? Anyone got good news links? Is a 'plugin' like mgftw even conceivable/allowed?

    L4D3 has been in development once or twice by steam where they scrapped it and started over but they was never happy with it and the limitations of the source engine at the time if I recall correctly.

    There's no official news of if I they ever restarted the project again or if they ever intend to, There's been a couple of updates to L4D2 over the last year so they've cleared decided not to completely forget about it at the very least.

    With no news on it even being in development we'd have no idea if a plugin like our PR would be conceivable/allowed.

    p.s. the forums are pretty dead these days, join the MG discord server for a somewhat more engaging community.
