Left 4 Dead DLC Revealed
It has been a few months since Left 4 Dead first launched, but so far information on downloadable content has been nill. That changed earlier this month, when new Left 4 Dead DLC, aptly named Survival was announced in a Valve press release. According to the press release, the survival pack is set for release sometime this spring, and will contain two new versus maps, or rather the re-releasing of the two non-versus campaigns (Death Toll and Dead Air) for use in versus mode. A new game mode named Survival will also be included in the pack, although no details have been released (Is it a survival, Nazi Zombies like infinite enemies defend the base type mode? Only time will tell). The press release also mentioned the Left 4 Dead Source Development Kit, which will allow third party modders to create content with less difficulty then before.
On top of all that, in the press release was mention of a Critic’s Choice edition of the game that includes the DLC, and likely some extra goodies. So, if you’ve saved out on buying Left 4 Dead, but are considering it, you might want to hold out a bit longer, since the Critic’s Choice Edition is set for release this spring.
