L4D2 mass order: the unboxing

The L4D2 mass order on GameAxis has arrived this morning. Let’s take a look at the goodies inside the packaging, shall we?

1.

The front cover of the L4D2 retail packaging, in comparison to the original L4D1 packaging. Not much difference, eh?

 

2.

And now, the reverse side of the packaging.

 


3.

I rip off the packaging for great justice. What wondrous-looking posters do we have inside?

 

4.

What you say! A4-sized posters? I wonder why the Dark Carnival movie-poster is the only one that is A3 size.

I’m a little bit disappointed by the posters, but this was what most people paying for the mass order wanted anyway, so I’m not complaining too much. Where’s my blu-tack, time to start pasting them up.

E-Club promotion thingy.

 

6.

Reverse side of the E-Club promotion thingy.

 

7.

Discount voucher for some Steelseries mice.

 

8.

Presenting the notorious Valve “reference card”. Yup, who needs game manuals when you can have a simple double-sided sheet of paper instead.

 

9.

Reverse side of the reference card. Very sparse and useless indeed, yet Valve has been creating these reference cards for the retail versions of their games since Half-life 2.

 

10.

What’s this, two DVDs? The one on the left contains previews of other upcoming games such as Assasin’s Creed 2, Bioshock 2, Mass Effect 2, Lost Planet 2, and many more. Gee, that’s a lot of “2″ sequels coming out.

 

11.

Everything in the L4D2 retail package laid out together. What you see here is what you get, gentlemen.

 

12.

And for those of you who don’t believe me, here’s proof that there’s more than one type of mousepad in the L4D1 retail package. The item at the top-left is a mini L4D1 poster.

So there you have it. Now you know what’s inside the Singapore retail version of L4D2. The game will be unlocked on Steam at 17 November, 1pm (Singapore time).

    Apparently, L4D2 will now be released TOMORROW, 17 November at 1pm. I previously reported it in the article to be 18 November, 1pm.

    Fail.
