Left 4 Dead 2's "The Passing" Brings New Game Modes. Plural.

The first add-on for zombie apocalypse shooter Left 4 Dead 2 may be more expansive than Valve originally lead us to believe. A new update on the downloadable campaign "The Passing" promises new "game modes".

Buried at the bottom of an announcement about a midweek deal on Left 4 Dead 2 - it's just $US24.99 on Steam, $US33.99 for Xbox 360 on Amazon, by the way - is a rundown of The Passing's features, including more than one new game mode. The rest of the new additions - weapons, a new uncommon common infected, a run in with some of the original Left 4 Dead survivors - are already known.

The Passing is planned for "spring", but we're not sure if Valve is still on schedule for the "late March" release it was aiming for at X10. We've reached out to Valve to get an updated release date, but have not yet heard back.

    they need to hurry up and bring it out already im sick of hearing about it just release it

    Can't wait. Got ME2 DLC comin, got L4D2 DLC comin, gonna be awesome hopefully.

    Is it going to be the same length as the other campaigns? If so it sounds pretty overpriced, unless these new game modes really turn out to be something great.

      Last I checked they hadn't announced pricing.. maybe you should actually read the post..

    so they did drop support for L4D then...

    Apart from that token campaign which was like 10 minutes long :(

      You mustn't read this site much. There has been several mentions of L4D1's DLC coming after L4D2's. The two DLCs will pretty much lead into/follow on from eachother.

    lol@steve: Nice assumption based on absolutely no research dude. Great job. Why don't you go read up on the DLC coming out for the original L4D and get back to us.

    That said, this seems extremely overpriced. It will be at least AU$30, which makes it half as much as the actual game itself. Is this campaign huge, are the game modes actually something new, are their plenty of new weapons?

    Even still, that is a massive price tag for DLC.

    All the ppl that said it was expensive should learn to read a little bit better!!!! They where talking about a L4D2 sale on steam and so on NOT the price of the DLC

    Even still l4d2 is cut in Aus, why would i bother playing a zombie game without the gore?

    thats like gay s3x without the gay.

    @ Steve
    would you miss the gay in your sex?

      Who wouldnt?

      its the best part!
