Zoey, Francis, Bill, and Louis are about to meet up with Coach, Ellis, Nick, and Rochelle by way of an all-new meaty bit of downloadable content for Left 4 Dead 2 coming next spring for the Xbox 360 and PC. As if you needed another reason to buy and play this incredible game!
Valve has announced that the new content, known as “The Passing,” will be the first game add-on for Left 4 Dead 2, and it will bring the original Left 4 Dead survivors down South for a meeting with our new heroes, while delivering new single-player, multi-player and co-operative gameplay for the PC and Xbox 360.
“The Passing” will take place just after the “Dead Center” campaign of L4D2. Set in a small town in rural Georgia, players assume the role of the L4D2 Survivors as they meet with the L4D1 characters.
In addition to the new co-operative campaign and associated narrative, The Passing will include new arenas for Survival, Versus, and Scavenge mode and introduce a new co-operative challenge mode of play. The Passing will also include a new “uncommon common” zombie class, melee weapon, and firearm.
“The Passing will become the most important campaign in the Left 4 Dead story, as all the Survivors are being called together in one campaign,” said Doug Lombardi, VP of marketing at Valve. “It will also be a huge offering of new gameplay content, with something new for every game mode plus a new uncommon common and weaponry.”
