Well, those people who still maintain that Left 4 Dead 2 is an expansion are about to be really confused, as Valve today announced the first of its DLC add-ons for the popular zombie apocalypse simulator.
The ironic part? It’s expanding by looking backward, tapping the four survivors from the first game for encore appearances.
But that’s not all–not by a long shot. Check out the rest of the post below to get the gory details.
Entitled “The Passing,” this expansion promises a new campaign that adds a vital layer to the ongoing story of the series, bringing the two separate groups of survivors together for the first time. At this point, it is unclear exactly what this interaction will be, but we can all hope that it’s much more than, “Oh, look, four other people who aren’t zombies.”
In addition, a new mode is promised that is billed as a “challenge mode,” and new content will be offered for survival, versus and scavenge modes.
No pricing has been announced as of now, but you can expect more information before long. Until then, keep those katana and chainsaw skills up to snuff–you might be passing them on to some new friends early in 2010.
