Valve have revealed their much loved zombie infested co-op romp, Left 4 Dead, will be earning itself a new campaign which will bridge the narrative gap between L4D and L4D2. What's even more impressive is that this new DLC called "The Sacrifice" will be made available for both games (so you only need to have one of them to play it).

L4D2 owners will also get "No Mercy" from the original game, while the whole thing will be prefaced with a 190 page comic that will lead up to the events that transpire in The Sacrifice. The content will be made available from October 5th which coincides with Left 4 Dead 2 releasing for Mac, and will be free for Mac and PC users, but will cost Xbox 360 owners a handful of MS Points.

Stay tuned for more once we have it.

I've forgotten all about L4D2 since BC2 came out. This may get me to have another whirl.

They need to make all L4D maps for L4D2 imo.

I disagree it's horrible, but agree they need to just deliver the final chapter of Half-frickin-Life already

They need to let custom content be more accessible, then I'd consider playing again.

L4D NM campaign is a good idea, wish they just ported them all :)

Been playing the old l4d1 maps in l4d2 for months now, from early ports right through to current builds. Most worked perfect with little or no graphical oddities (checkered purple textures etc).

Check it out : http://oprecords.com/l4donl4d2/

valve is one of the best companies out there i think. they half get what the ppl want, regular updates, new maps, guns, mods etc...

+1 for the freeness aswell, instead of some s*** $20 update pack.
