Left 4 Dead 2 'The Passing' DLC Revealed, More Left 4 Dead 1 Content Detailed, Comic Announced

32
Valve has released screenshots of Left 4 Dead 2's downloadable content 'The Passing,' which will see survivors from the original L4D meet up with Coach and the gang.

Due to hit PC and Xbox 360 in "late March," Kotaku reveals, The Passing will see Bill, Zoey, Francis and Louis crossing paths with L4D's survivors and encountering a new 'uncommon common' infected named the Fallen Survivor who sometimes drops items.

Further content will also come for the original Left 4 Dead in the form of an add-on telling of the fab four's journey to The Passing, a "month or so" after The Passing hits.

A digital Left 4 Dead comic book illustrated by Powers' Michael Avon Oeming and likely starring the original cast will also follow in the wake of The Passing.

    I hate the word DLC in this case. I prefer "Content Patch"

        Patch kind of implies that its Downloadable, in the same way that DLC implies that it costs money now days.

          PDLC is paid for.

          DLC is ambiguous.

      It's a free micro-transaction add-on.
