New DLC Due for Left 4 Dead

Left 4 DeadValve Software announced yesterday that a new DLC pack for the original Left 4 Dead is due in September. ‘Crash Course’ is a new chapter to the game, set between the original ‘No Mercy’ and ‘Death Toll’ campaigns.

Word is that it will feature new single-player, multi-player, and co-op gameplay options, as well as a streamlined 30-minute ‘Versus’ mode.

One point that might stick in the craw of gamers is that owners of the PC version of the game can download this pack for free … while Xbox 360 owners will drop 560 MS points for the exact same content. (Achievements are getting more expensive by the moment, apparently.)

Whether this is a sign that Valve intends to continue supporting the original Left 4 Dead while releasing and supporting the oh-so-quick sequel due out this fall remains to be seen. Look for this bit of DLC to hit online in September.

    here is a bit more info

    Entitled “Crash Course,” the latest DLC delivers new single-player, multiplayer and co-operative gameplay to both platforms. Targeted for release in September, “Crash Course” bridges the gap between the end of the “No Mercy” campaign and the beginning of “Death Toll” in the original game, expanding the game universe with new locations, new dialogue from the original cast, and an explosive finale

    While containing both Survival maps and a Co-operative Campaign, the primary goal of “Crash” is to deliver a complete Versus mode experience in just 30 minutes, resulting in a streamlined version of the game’s existing Versus campaigns. A recharge timer for infected teammates has also been added, and item spawn behavior has changed for more balanced gameplay
