Valve to show off Left 4 Dead 2′s “The Jockey” at PAX

Wednesday, 2nd September 2009 17:50 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


According to a report over on D’toid, Valve will be showing off the new Special Infected coming to Left 4 Dead 2 at PAX.

This little zombie guy, called The Jockey, will “jump on the backs of Survivors and tear them apart from behind”, while controlling the movements of the Survivor and leading them into areas where zombies are waiting to eat them, caress them, or talk politics.

Or whatever it is zombies do when they get a hold of your character. Regardless, it won’t be nice.

PAX is this weekend, so stick around to find out all about it.

Thanks, D’Toid.

    They are bloody annoying bastards I can tell you that. Yoshi’s on the right track with the hunter reference.

    It’s a hunter with mind-control.

    All they need now is some kind of psychic zombie that makes you friendly fire your teammates.
