ABOUT

Fatal Freight is a 5-chapter campaign created with a strong focus on delivering balanced gameplay on all difficulties and gametypes. Each level has undergone extreme testing and tweaking to put them on par with the official campaigns from Valve. Fatal Freight offers new and veteran players alike a dramatic and highly entertaining experience from start to finish while modelling the original and iconic coop gameplay that has made the Left 4 Dead series so successful.

After crashing their vehicle, the survivors find themselves holed up in a small tunnel at the edge of the forest. With supplies running low and the frigid winter looming on the horizon, there is little hope for survival. Suddenly, a strange voice comes through the radio. A man, claiming to have a means of escape is holed up at a freight train depot a few miles away. Seeing it as their best option, the survivors grab their remaining supplies and head out into the woods..
