VGA video contains “Infected” tease, looks like Left 4 Dead

Looks like Valve may be teasing something related to the Left 4 Dead franchise during the VGAs next month.

While looking over the latest commercial for the Video Game Awards, in the “World Premiere” section, it teases not only a football game (NFL Blitz maybe?)and the now infamous BioWare Quickmark, but if you pause the video at 20 seconds in, you will see the image above.

At the bottom of the image, enlarged below, you will see it says 1 of 3.

Could it be an massive update to Left 4 Dead 2? Left 4 Dead 2 on PS3 and something to do with Sony’s “save the date” tease? The announcement of Left 4 Dead 3?

Who knows. It’s Valve after all. Maybe. Maybe not. Watch the video for yourself and check out a larger version of the image below.

We’ve been pondering over it for an hour or more already.

There’s also an analysis video posted by E4GTV at the very bottom, so looks like it’s not only us who think it is L4D-related, along with the rest of the internet.

  • Spike VGAs renamed VGX, dated for December

    The Spike Video Game Awards, where we’re likely to find out more details on much of the new PlayStation 4 content revealed today, have been slapped with a new name and a release date.

  • VGAs 2012: a new hope (despite the Newell gaffe)

    Two steps forward, one step back. Last night’s VGAs showed reason to hope for a respectable awards event in the years to come. They might want to leave Garry out of it next time, though. Catherine Cai reports from LA.
