The first DLC for Left 4 Dead 2 has just been announced, and it's going to bring the cast from the first Left 4 Dead together with the sequel. A new co-operative game mode will be announced (no idea what it is - but I'm hoping for some 8 player co-op).

I'm hoping that this will be a free update for PC owners (as all DLC has been from Valve so far). Maybe it'll also bring along an ability to play the Left 4 Dead campaigns in L4D2 provided you own both games. Here's hoping! Press release below:

Valve, creators of best-selling game franchises (such as Half-Life, Portal, Team Fortress, and Counter-Strike) and leading technologies (such as Steam and Source), today announced the first game add-on for its co-operative zombie thriller, Left 4 Dead 2 (L4D2), is in development and targeted for release in early 2010.

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 for the PC and Xbox 360.

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.”

I like it, its very cool. I'd like to make this kind of signatures, but I can't find a "guide" to make them. Out of that, awesome.

Yeah that would be good as well.

It's the best racing game of 2009, and probably the best engine of the year too.

What about #5 or #6 with white guns, and "infected" instead of "zombies" I like the spacing of the guns better in 5 and 6. You can see the progression from Pistol, T1, T2 and Melee a lot better. ...

I like #3 the best. The white colored weapons stand out well against the dark background, and "infected" is a better term, plus the closeup shot of Ellis is pretty nice.

I personally like the last two (which are the same with a different campaign played) best.

I also wouldn't let children under the age of at least 13 near any of those games. Some of them even longer.
