Left 4 Dead 1 & 2 DLC "The Sacrifice" on October 5
Valve has announced a release date for the next bit of Left 4 Dead DLC on Xbox Live and PC. "The Sacrifice" acts as a prequel to The Passing and can be played with either Left 4 Dead 1 or Left 4 Dead 2.
Here are the details directly from Valve:
"The Sacrifice takes place from the L4D Survivors' perspective as they make their way South. In addition to advancing the story, The Sacrifice introduces a new style finale featuring 'Sacrificial Gameplay' where players get to decide who will give their life so the others may live.
"The Sacrifice DLC for L4D1 is a seperate download than The Sacrifice for L4D2. In The Sacrifice for Left 4 Dead 1 gamers receive the complete Sacrifice campaign with maps playable in Campaign, Versus, and Survival.
"In The Sacrifice for Left 4 Dead 2 owners receive "The Sacrifice" campaign playable with the Left 4 Dead survivors. In addition, those with Left 4 Dead 2 receive L4D's "No Mercy" campaign. Both campaigns are playable in Campaign, Versus, Survival, and Scavenge modes and both will feature the Left 4 Dead 2 Special Infected, items, and weapons."
It seems that Left 4 Dead 2 owners are clearly getting the better deal.
As always, the DLC will be free to all PC gamers but will run Xbox users 560 MS points when it hits on October 5.
