Left 4 Dead 2 Added to Xbox One Backwards Compatibility List, Time to Kill Some Zombies!

Today it’s been observed that Valve's popular Left 4 Dead 2 has also become a part of the Xbox One backwards compatibility list.

It seems like a new set of games are being added every week by Microsoft in the Xbox One backwards compatibility, as today it’s been observed that Left 4 Dead 2 has also become a part of the list.

The highly popular multiplayer shooter game was highly praised for its simple yet insanely addictive and fun wave-based gameplay back when it was released in 2009, and since then it’s become a classic.

Now, players can enjoy the team-based title thanks to the Xbox One backwards compatibility.

Left 4 Dead 2’s addition is only one of several additions in the Xbox One backwards compatibility program in the past week. Just yesterday, it was announced that Halo Wars and fighting title Soul Calibur 2 would also be added to the backwards compatibility.

Rewind back one week and you’ll see how Dark Souls and Tekken Tag Tournament were also added to the list alongside the likes of Assassin’s Creed and Dark Void, while two weeks ago we were treated with the addition of classics like BioShock and more.

Fans have been demanding a sequel to Left 4 Dead 2, but Valve has remained quiet as ever. Since then, many have been digging for clues about a possible sequel in files and directories wherever they can.

A report earlier this year suggested that Valve was not developing Left 4 Dead 3 at the moment, but there were plans to release the title in 2017. Additionally, several character details were also supposedly leaked, though it’s always best to take all that with a pinch of salt.

Left 4 Dead 2 isn’t the last game we’ll see added to the Xbox One backwards compatibility program, but it is certain one of the most popular titles to have been added recently, and it’s refreshing to know we’d be able to kill countless zombies with our friends again on our newer systems.
