Left 4 Dead 2 Is A Big Departure For Valve

Valve writer Chet Faliszek has commented on Left 4 Dead 2 being a substantial departure from the norms of Valve titles, comparing it to Half-Life 2: Episode One:
“Left 4 Dead 2 is a really big departure for us. For example, with Half-Life 2 Episode 1, do you remember when you get into the Citadel for the first time, there’s one of the big things that fly over you, and he’s holding some striders?"

"Getting people to look up to that was impossible. We put a guy up in a balcony shooting at you, and then you turn and look. Problem with Left 4 Dead is, it’s all dynamic, it’s meant to be different every time, we never want to have that guy up there always shooting at you."
For those of you not whining about the impending sequel, it's due for release on November 17th for Xbox 360 and PC.
