New Left 4 Dead DLC shuts up moaners

There was something of an uproar in the gaming community when Valve decided that they were going to release a sequel to Left 4 Dead only a year after the original game was released. ‘Ripping off fans’, they said. ‘No more downloadable content for the original game’, they wailed.

Wrong. Valve have announced the release of ‘Crash Course’ as DLC for both Xbox 360 and PC, giving you new single-player, multiplayer and co-operative gameplay and extending the life of the original zombie kill fest by a good few months at least. It also has new locations, new dialogue from the original cast and apparently ‘delivers a complete Versus mode experience in just 30 minutes’. Cool.

‘Since the release of Left 4 Dead last November, the design team has been excited about creating new experiences for this world and allowing players to do the same, by releasing much of our internal toolset, like the Survival Pack and Authoring Tools,’ said Valve’s Gabe Newell. ‘We're working with the fans toward the ongoing entertainment value of the product.’ So stop bloody moaning.
