  The Sacrifice - L4D2 Game News

The Sacrifice, new DLC for both Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2, was revealed today by Valve. The DLC will be compatible with both games, so no matter which one you have, you’ll be able to play it.

The new DLC follows the survivors from the original campaign, and fills in the gap between the end of the first game and The Passing DLC for Left 4 Dead 2. The game is done from the perspective of the original game’s cast, and explains how they come to meet up with the Left 4 Dead 2 cast. As the name implies, you will also be able to choose who lives and who dies, rather than having to live with Valve’s decision (according to the current DLC, it’s Bill who doesn’t make it. Sad face).

Another nice feature is the inclusion of the No Mercy campaign (the hospital level, one of the most popular from the original game) for Left 4 Dead 2 owners, allowing you to play the campaign with the updated weapons and zombie types. Original game owners will still be limited to the original weapons and zombies.

During a recent interview with producer Chet Faliszek PC gamer.com revealed a few intersting features for the new DLC for L4D 2. In the No Mercy Campaign you will play as the original survivors in 2. Zoe and the rest will now have access to the melee weapons and are playable.

The full interview can be found here

The decision to add No Mercy to Left 4 Dead 2 was simply that it was very popular with players, and Valve like it a lot. “When we first changed them over,” Chet says, “they were brutally hard. Your strategy of holing up in corners just disappears, because the Spitter is going to wreak havoc. The Rooftop of No Mercy now, with Chargers and Tanks, is… you’d better not stand by a ledge.”

They addressed that by giving players the best of Left 4 Dead 2’s arsenal, including several of the mighty M60 machineguns added by The Passing. “You’re playing as the Left 4 Dead 1 characters in Left 4 Dead 1 maps, but you get melee weapons, the new weapons, the defib – all the stuff from Left 4 Dead 2. You get to see Zoe with a chainsaw, Zoe with an axe,” Chet says with ill-hidden lust.

Any way back the Sacrafice it will be a 3 map campaign and be much bigger than any of the other DLC before it.
It links the 2 stories together and it is hoped by Valve that L4D 2 owners who don't own the original game will want to rush out and buy to see it from both sides and vice versa.

The DLC is expected on October 5th but knowing Valve it could be any time after that wink
