I haven't posted on here in a pretty long time, so I figured I'd make a topic about this new DLC coming out for both Left 4 Deads. I'll do it in the same style as my other thread about The Passing.

The Sacrifice
RELEASE DATE: Tuesday, October 5th, 2010

May contain spoilers.

  • Starting from Tuesday, September 14th, a four part comic is being released one part at a time every Tuesday, leading up to the October 5th release of the DLC.
    • The comic shows what happens to the L4D1 survivors after the last campaign in L4D1 (Blood Harvest), and before the L4D2 DLC Campaign (The Passing).
    • It also goes into the backstory of Bill, Francis, Louis, and Zoey.
    • Will show how Bill dies.
  • New 3 map campaign titled "The Sacrifice".
    • Being released for both L4D1 and L4D2.
    • The Sacrifice shows what happens before the events of The Passing, and it will go through the last events of the last part of the comic.
    • The campaign will show how Bill dies, but when you actually play, you can pick any character to make the sacrifice and die.
    • You play as the L4D1 survivors (Bill, Francis, Louis, and Zoey), even in the L4D2 version.
  • No Mercy campaign from L4D1 will be officially ported to L4D2 in this DLC, and you will be able to play as the L4D1 characters with the L4D2 weapons, infected, items, etc.
  • Achievements (# of them is currently unknown)
  • There has been no word of a new uncommon infected, new weapons, new game entities (i.e the foot lockers in The Passing), or new game modes in this DLC.
  • Currently there is no official campaign poster.

This sounds like it's actually going to be a great DLC. Thanks for making this awesome post. I'm excited to see that the new entities from L4D2 will be available in the ported No Mercy campaign with the old survivors. Hopefully they port some of the other L4D1 campaigns over to L4D2 in the near future.

I hope there are a good number of achievements coming with this DLC, and not just stupid ones like "Win 5 scavenge games on The Port" or some campaign-specific item like that. Also, it would be advantageous for Valve if they actually made a campaign poster this time that doesn't look like an MS Paint creation.

Yeah, lol. Sorry I never updated this topic. Not that it mattered anyway. :D

Dang...I haven't logged on here in about 2 months.
