There's More Left 4 Dead Coming To Left 4 Dead 2

Valve has revealed the next batch of downloadable content coming to Left 4 Dead 2. There's something old - a new campaign called "Cold Stream" - and something new - maps from the original Left 4 Dead - coming for owners of Left 4 Dead 2.

The official Left 4 Dead blog writes that the three remaining campaigns from the first game, Blood Harvest, Dead Air and Death Toll, will be released as part of a map pack for Left 4 Dead 2. Presumably, that will come with balance changes, bug fixes and whatever else it takes to make those levels mesh with Left 4 Dead 2's style of gameplay.

Additionally, the community-made campaign "Cold Stream" will also come to the PC, Xbox 360 and Mac. Expect it to be story-free, which Valve says makes it possible to deliver these things faster.

No date, no pricing announced yet. But if you're looking for a little more detail, read on.

    So... wouldn't the maps from the original Left 4 Dead be "something old", and the NEW campaign would, in fact, be "something new"?

    Now how about that PS3 version, Valve?

      I think the PS3 version of Portal 2 is their way of making it up to us. I'm not complaining though. Bought L4D2 for $5 on Steam. And will be getting the PS3+PC version for about $60 from the UK. I <3 Valve.

        Wouldn't surprise me if they did a PS3 L4D, though. If they've got the Source engine and Steam integration up and running for Portal 2 then the cost of creating a PS3 version of L4D should be minimal, and there's money to be made.

    I think you have your "something old" and "something new" back the front.

    Awesome i guess. I have never played any of them but I have a ozgameshop version on its way now. Can't wait!

      Hey FatShady I have a copy of Left for Dead 2 from the UK and I was looking for some peeps to play with. My Xbox gamer code is:
      Add me if you or any one else is up for a game.

    I picked this game up through steam a little while ago. Played 10mins and dropped it.

    Not because it's a bad game, but because of the restrictions the AU version got.

      You bought it wrong.

    I would definitely go out and purchase this were it not for the hideously censored version of Left 4 Dead 2 we have here in Australia.

      By changing 2 numbers in a text file in the game files, you can play it uncensored.

        Or you could just buy an overseas version. Get someone you know over seas to gift it to you via steam, and send them the money.

    Cold Stream? But, but...Why not 'I HATE MOUNT4INS'? The polished final version was released three weeks ago and

    About time they started releasing community maps as 'official' something they should at least have started doing with the 'Featured' maps they started doing a few months back.

    Of course it's story-free. Pretty much all of the Left 4 Dead series is story-free.
