Left 4 Dead 1/2 getting new DLC campaign "The Sacrifice"

Post by Yaznee! L4DS on Mon Aug 23, 2010 1:25 am

Valve is readying a new DLC campaign for BOTH Left 4 Dead 1 and 2, entitled 'The Sacrifice'.

According to Valve's Chet Faliszek, who made the revelations on the latest episode of GameTrailers TV, the new campaign will allow players to relive the moment with a member of the original L4D survivors were lost to the brain-munching Horde.

The update, which will work across both games, will therefore allow you to play as the original four survivors in the sequel for the first time, and will give the players the option of which member will be killed by the Horde, hence it 'Sacrifice' in the title.

That's not all - owners of the sequel can also look forward to getting an updated version of the first game's No Mercy campaign bundled in with 'The Sacrifice'.

Valve also has a 150-page digital comic on the way in four parts, which detail the events leading up to the DLC. Faliszek says it will arrive "beforehand" in September, so don't expect the DLC itself before then.

Faliszek confirmed that the download would be free to Steam users on PC and Mac, but left us guessing on a console price and release date.

I think you will be able to play with francis, zoey, bill and louis in L4D2, but besides that the specials and weapons are unchanged for both games.

Guess not:

"One of the cool things about Left 4 Dead 1's version of The Sacrifice is that it lets players try out the cool new melee and other weapons from Left 4 Dead 2"

(spoiler alert) Left 4 Dead 1's Bill is dead, The Sacrifice will allow players to change which character from the Left 4 Dead 1 cast actually bites it.

Just played through this on L4D2 and my impression is that while it's a fun campaign to play it still quite short, and you are even able to speedrun this on L4D2 ! since it's such a simple campaign that does not use the L4D2 random routes that are on some L4D2 maps.

For the No Mercy, L4D2 version, I think they really fucked up on the animations on the survivors, especially Zoey was spazzing out in the game I played on versus on that map. It seems they have just copy/pasted in the characters to the game and it's not quite ready yet.

The sacrifice. 50% copy / paste. Also the end is even a recycled version of The Passing's end level. Nothing new there.

And one more thing I dont get about the sacrifice, why would you have to sacrifice? I mean you got the massive gun up there and 2 people can go down to turn on the generator while the other 2 cover from the top. Should be no problem to get it going and get back up without dying. I mean it's not really nessesary to make the sacrifice, really.
