To celebrate Halloween, we are unleashing L4D2 on the world. Starting this Thursday, the entire game will be free to play for the whole weekend. New players can begin pre-loading now. For long time players, it is time to welcome your new found friends and help them survive the zombie apocalypse.

For current players, we created a new achievement. Good Guy Nick - – “Plays games with free weekend players and helps them survive a campaign.” Who is a free weekend player? You’re going to have to talk to each other to find out or you could always let your friends know Left 4 Dead 2 is going to be free this weekend and have them join you. Spread the word! It’s the zombie apocalypse, bring friends.

I almost have all of the achievements. I'll be online getting this one if any Steam CAGs need some help. Feel free to add me. I was in last year's tourney, so I'm pretty good at the game.

Wish they would do a free weekend for single player games because I totally want to give Assassin's creed 2 out on pc.

No. Shadowrun and FFXI are the only games I can think of that do.

No. There is like 2 games I think that can cross play with the 360? Both were GFWL games too I think.

Its $5 on steam right now which is almost free.

Why would you need a free weekend if you own the game already?

This is a great online game but I always get kicked off by administrators. I have no clue what I'm doing wrong but it's gotten to the point to where I play single player matches only. This is the only game I have that problem with.

Universe at War: Earth Assault was also a cross platform RTS I think.

That never really took off, the whole cross platform gaming. Maybe they will have another go at it with Windows 8 coming out, who knows.

Uh....AVG just came up with a Win32/Heur virus warning when the pre-load finished, in the client.dll inside of:

c:\steam\steamapps\common\left 4 dead 2\left4dead2\bin\client.dll

Dah Fuck?

*edit* Googled the issue, seems to be an uncommon by not unheard-of problem. I think I fixed it. Anyone else have this happen to them though? First time for me.

You downloaded it from Steam? Sounds like a false positive. AVG is notorious for those.

I use Nod32 and it has been coming up with virus notifications for Payday: The Heist every day for the past 2 weeks and Primal Carnage since I downloaded the beta.

I just ignore them, I know they are just false positives. It is annoying though.
