Working together with a partner, defend your base from onrushing zerg infested. Protect yourself from the relentless hordes during the night, and build up your forces to strike back during the daytime. Cooperate, or measure your survival in seconds.
Left 2 Die is a cooperative take on the Outbreak mission from the StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty campaign. Similar to Outbreak, the action takes place in a terran colony that has been overrun by a zerg infestation. The game shifts between two phases: a night phase and a day phase.
At night, you and a teammate will be tasked with protecting your base against waves of infested terran. Using defensive structures like bunkers and coordinating your defense against the invading zerg forces will be critical to your team's survival in this phase. You'll also want to watch out for special zerg units including the kaboomer and stank, as these creatures can perform unique abilities capable of overwhelming even the strongest front lines.
During the day, the attacks on your team's base will cease, giving you and your teammate time to train additional units and take them out to destroy infested terran settlements scattered across the map. It’s also a good idea to continue to build up defenses during the daytime so you can survive the merciless onslaught of zerg that swarm your base at night.
While the struggle to survive in Left 2 Die can be daunting, you’ll have some help along the way. Beyond having your teammate to assist you, you can also earn zerg biomass by killing special zerg units and destroying infested buildings. Zerg biomass is a new type of currency that can be used at the science facility in your base to research units and structures like medics, firebats, and perdition turrets. These upgrades can be used by both you and your teammate and will increase your team's potency against the zerg strain.
In order to achieve victory in Left 2 Die, you'll need to eradicate all traces of the zerg virus. Work together to survive at night, assault and rebuild during the day, and use biomass wisely for epic upgrades to win!
