Halloween is arriving a little early this year. In an announcement at EA’s Tokyo press conference, Valve revealed that a Left 4 Dead 2 demo is headed our way on October 27th.

While the announcement didn’t offer any specifics, it’s not a stretch to assume that the demo will feature multiplayer. There’s no word yet on which level is getting the demo treatment, but as long as we’re able to watch Cutty smash some skulls with a skillet, there won’t be any complaints.

In a related update, the original Left 4 Dead is also due for new content. “Crash Course”, the streamlined bridge campaign linking “No Mercy” and “Death Toll”, finds its way to the PC and 360 on September 29th.
