Left 4 Dead 2 Came Close to Including a Movie Tie-In


During a Reddit IAmA, Cabin in the Woods director Drew Goddard revealed that Valve had planned to release a Left 4 Dead 2 DLC based on the movie.

Quote:
We actually were going to do a downloadable L4D2 expansion pack, where you'd fight in the Cabin world, but then MGM went bankrupt so the delay squashed it. But the people at Valve were still cool enough to let us use some of their monsters to fill the cubes in the background (I had a lot of cubes to fill.)

By the way -- the game was gonna be amazing. You were gonna be able to play in both the upstairs "Cabin in the Woods" world and the downstairs "facility" world with all the monsters. Believe me, I HATE all video games based on movies, they always suck, but porting Cabin into Left For Dead felt like the right fit. It pains me that it didn't happen.

I'd rather see a fully featured animated film based on L4d instead, but this still sucks to hear. Cabin in the woods was decent.

Would have been awesome to see this made. A rather interesting tie-in. Instead of making it's own terrible game, they were going to make an expansion to a really fun game.

I think this would have been terrible. You can't take the "Real Life" world of Cabin in the Woods and port it over to the cartoon world of video games. It wouldn't have been cool, it would have come off as pathetic and half-assed.

Valve already did the "Labratory full of Monsters" game, it was called Half-Life. I don't think you can improve on it by trying to tie it to some movie.
