The Passing

Post  King Weavilian on Mon Dec 14, 2009 1:41 pm

Dubbed "The Passing," the first game add-on for L4D2 brings the original Left 4 Dead (L4D1) Survivors down south for a meeting with the L4D2 cast, while delivering new single-player, multiplayer and co-operative gameplay.

Targeted for release in early spring, "The Passing" takes place just after the Dead Center campaign of L4D2. Set in a small town in rural Georgia, players assume the role of the L4D2 Survivors as they meet with the L4D1 characters.

In addition to the new co-operative campaign and associated narrative, "The Passing" will include new arenas for Survival, Versus and Scavenge mode and introduce a new co-operative challenge mode of play. The Passing will also include a new "uncommon common" zombie class, melee weapon, and firearm.

"The Passing will become the most important campaign in the Left 4 Dead story, as all the Survivors are being called together in one campaign," said Doug Lombardi, VP of marketing at Valve. "It will also be a huge offering of new gameplay content, with something new for every game mode plus a new uncommon common and weaponry."

Can't wait, it sounds great. I hope the L4D characters will be in the whole campaign and not just a little part. Also this means new dialogue for all survivors, so there's nothing wrong with any of this. Razz

I am looking forward to it, but seeing Valve cave in so easily to the fans... Neutral

DLC is DLC at the end of the day and since this is gonna be free, I've got no choice. Let's hope it's better than Crap Course or the Survival Crap.

It's not fan service. It's marketing.

What have the fans wanted since L4D2's release? The old survivors. What is the DLC giving? The old survivors.

That's fan service.

If it was marketing they would charge you for it.

You think they are releasing new DLC for the people who have already bought the game? "Bill - Bull freakin' horse shit"

The only reason why Valve update their games is to get more sales. How many people have, L4D but still haven't bought 2.. this could be the potential kick to get them to buy it. Hence marketing.

Even Valve have mentioned, they do the TF2 updates to persuade people to buy it.

More people have L4D2 than L4D.

The pre-order and sale rate of L4D2 is much higher than the original L4D. If Valve are doing this for 'marketing' they could do something completely different. It is undeniable that this DLC is purely for the fan service, why else would the original survivors be the highlight. It's like:

"Hey guys! The original survivors are back! Also one new melee and ranged weapon but who cares?! THE ORIGINAL SURVIVORS!"

It's most likely priced for Xbox due to Microsoft being money grubbing bastards. Xbox owners had to pay for Crash Course (LOL!)

This sounds great!
It'll be interesting to see how meeting the original survivors will clip on to the l4d2 sub-story line (since they are in Jimmy Gibs race car)

It still makes me laugh how my friend still thinks l4d is better on xbox than PC

Lol I have a Zoey mod for rochelle this will be interesting Razz

I'm surprised no one has made a fart joke yet; so I'll be the first.

XD Nice joke!
Also the guy on the first 2 videos says that there will be a comic with a story for all 8 characters, and how they ended up in "The Passing", and there will be a DLC for L4D1 which will explain most of the story that happened!

I'm certainly going to ruin every bit of dialogue for that when it comes out.

"PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE PILLS HERE"

What I don't get is why Valve have released information about this DLC so soon. They usually wait about 2 weeks before releasing information. Now we have to wait another month to play this.
