PSA

 

According to the Left 4 Dead Blog (http://store.steampowered.com/app/550/), you MUST install the game. It's not clear if claiming the game alone is enough but it couldn't hurt to simply start the download, pausing immediately, and then resuming later.

Yup, according to this:

 

http://store.steampo...com/news/12151/

 

They're giving away the game free until 12/26/13 10:00am PST.  And once you claim the game by clicking the Install button it's yours to keep forever.

So even if I click install on my current comp that can't play games, it will be noted on my account, and I'll be able to redownload it on my other comp?

You click install on the store page and it's registered to your account.

Yes, as long as you're logged into your Steam account it will attach the game to your account and you'll own it forever.

Wish it was the first game so maybe more people would play it online. I didn't like 2.

This is good news. More people to play with.

 

BTW, if GMG still has it, they were offering the whole Valve pack for $25 ($20 with coupon).

I can't even get the steam store page to load, I'm guessing Steam is a little overwhelmed at the moment.

Still unable to get the page to load. So much for a free copy of Left 4 Dead 2.

L4D1 plays differently to the second; it's not just about the maps.

Thanks, OP!  I added the game to my account.  Pretty cool, since I don't have a 360 and haven't played through a Left 4 Dead game before...

Definitely a nice present.  I was so close to pulling the trigger on 2 or 3 copies on Gamefly too, close one!  Nice coop for our 2 new Christmas computers :)

Can you uninstall the game once you've installed it and claimed your free copy, but keep it in your library? There's no way I'll get around to playing this in the near term...
