Left 4 Dead 2’s First DLC Unites Survivors

1 min read


Valve have announced the first bit of Add-on DLC for Left 4 Dead 2. Called “The Passing,” the new content is set after “Dead Centre.”

“The Passing” introduces a new "uncommon common" infected type, two new weapons – one melee, one firearm – and "a new co-operative challenge mode of play." The campaign takes place in "in a small town in rural Georgia," but will see the four survivors – Ellis, Coach, Rochelle, and Nick – meeting up with the survivors from the first game – Bill, Francis, Zoey and Louis.

What they don’t quite say is whether or not the original survivors are still alive, or if they’re rotting corpses intent on EAAATTING YOUR BRRRRAAAAINS – or whether it’ll lead to an 8 player co-op fest.

I’d be content with either. The Passing is expected on Steam and XBL in autumn of 2010.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
