If you're curious to know if your PC can handle Valve's new zombie shooter then you need wonder no more thanks to these system specifications which were today announced by Valve's Doug Lombardi over at Half-Life2.net.

Left4Dead is one of Valve's most eagerly awaited projects as the game is set to be geared totally towards co-operative gaming. The title casts up to four players as humans who must fight hordes of AI controlled zombies across a series of campaigns. The game has received particular praise for the new AI Director system too, which adapts the placement and ferocity of enemies according to players style and abilities.

Check out the system specs below.

OS: Windows Vista, XP or 2000
CPU: 3.0 GHz P4, Dual Core 2.0 or AMD64X2 (or higher)
RAM: 1 GB for XP / 2GB for Vista
DISC DRIVE: DVD-ROM Drive
HARD DRIVE: At least 7.5 GB of free space
VIDEO: Direct X 9 compatible video card (Video card must be 256 MB or more and should be a DirectX 9-compatible with support for pixel shader 2.0)
SOUND: Direct X9.0c compatible sound card

So, what does that mean? Well, it means that the requirements are pretty much the same as any other Source game of late, but seeing as Left4Dead runs on the same engine as Half-Life 2 and its subsequent episodes that isn't really very surprising.
