Pre-order this zombie-killer on Steam and get brain-eating goodness at a discount.

Who doesn't like sweet, delicious bbbbrrrraaaaaaiiiinnnsss? PC gamers planning to pick up Valve's forthcoming zombie infested bloodbath next month can exercise their gray matter now, by pre-ordering the cooperative survival shooter on Steam to save a few bucks. Yesterday, Valve announced anyone pre-purchasing Left 4 Dead on Steam will receive a 10 percent discount. Similar deals are already being offered for pre-ordering the retail PC and Xbox 360 versions of the game.

Despite the current state of economic unrest and concern across the industry for game sales this holiday season, Valve's marketing VP Doug Lombardi paints a rosy picture of pre-orders among gamers looking forward to the next level in interactive co-op zombie slaying.

"With just over four weeks until launch, Left 4 Dead is showing every sign of topping The Orange Box on both the PC and Xbox 360, at retail as well as on Steam," Lombardi said in a press statement. "Our pre-sell numbers at retail have jumped to over 65% greater than Orange Box at the same proximity to launch, and we're seeing tremendous enthusiasm for the product in what promises to be another great year for gaming on both platforms."

Valve's new franchise aims to satiate zombie survival horror enthusiasts itching for a robust singe player, multiplayer and co-op experience. The zombie infestation spreads onto Steam, PC, and the Xbox 360 on Nov. 18. Will you count yourself among the living, the dead, or the undead?
