A trailer posted by Overkill Software (since pulled) revealed the collaboration between Overkill and Valve as Payday: The Heist – No Mercy, a Payday game (either a new standalone release or a DLC expansion, it’s unclear which) that crosses Overkill’s heist series with Left 4 Dead.
The trailer reveals that the episode will act as a prequel for Valve’s zombie shooting series, with a heist in Left 4 Dead’s Mercy Hospital. “Have you ever wondered how the Left 4 Dead series began?” the YouTube description asks. “It started with a heist!” So by playing this, you’ll very likely trigger the zombie pandemic in those two games. Real nice, butterfingers.
