It will be free as in, grab it now
, pay no money, and it is yours to keep forever – FOR FREE!
To claim your L4D2 gift, all you need to do is install it.

To help spread the holiday cheer, all current players can earn the achievement – Ghost of Christmas Present – Spread cheer by helping a free holiday player survive a campaign.
Left 4 Dead 2 is filled with so much content where do you start?
To avoid any grinches, we suggest jumping into campaign mode and get the basics down before moving into the competitive modes.
You can also check out some guides
, read the forums
and ask questions, check out some art
, read the comic
, watch some movies
, and most importantly have fun!
Some other quick tips:
Before the game: HOOK UP YOUR MICROPHONE! Communication is important in L4D2. Make sure you can keep in contact with your teammates.
In Game: stay with your teammates. L4D2 is all about teamwork and leaving your dentist friend behind to go off on your own will only get you killed. It doesn't matter that you glow!
Post Game: Make friends. If you are having fun with a group, send them friend invites or join a common group.
