Left 4 Dead 2 hasn't been left behind. The modern classic zombie shooter is the latest Xbox 360 title to be added to the Xbox One backward compatible catalog.

The reintroduction of Left 4 Dead 2 has proceeded by backward compatibility updates that brought Halo Wars, Soul Calibur II HD, The King of Fighters '98 Ultimate Match, Dark Souls, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Assassin's Creed and Dark Void just days earlier.

The rest of the games to be added to the list during the month of March include Grid 2, Alan Wake, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and Pac-Man. Xboxer in chief Larry Hryb or Major Nelson announced Left 4 Dead 2's inclusion into the Xbox One's catalog of backward compatible games, doing so via a tweet.

With rumors of a new Left 4 Dead seeming to turn out to be nothing more than speculation and conjecture, the inception of Left 4 Dead 2 into the catalog gives game collectors an opportunity to revisit its iconic heroes and zombies.

Left 4 Dead 2 launched on PC and Xbox 360 back in November of 2009. Though nearly seven years have passed, it's still one of those games any shooter fan must try more than a few times at least.

With over 20 weapons, 10 of which are for melee, Left 4 Dead 2 was one of those games that defined what an aggressive horde of zombies should be. The game is built to give any player just as much as she or he can handle.

"Advanced technology dubbed 'The AI Director' drove L4D's unique gameplay – customizing enemy population, effects, and music, based upon the players' performance," states the game's description. "L4D 2 features 'The AI Director 2.0' which expands the Director's ability to customize level layout, world objects, weather, and lighting to reflect different times of day.

While Left 4 Dead has yet to see a third installment, there is a more recent game to which it is spiritually connected. Turtle Rock's Evolve, which features co-op monster hunting in the vein of a Left 4 Dead game, worked on the series first title before being refounded and regaining its independence.
