I love you Valve. Everyone had their doubts.. but I had faith. That’s right, Valve have announced the first REAL DLC for Left 4 Dead (by real I mean hard-cash-paid-for-new-content-REAL)!! I am extremely excited. As much as I can’t wait for Left 4 Dead 2, I am not ready to give up on the original characters just yet. I have bonded after many hours of gameplay with Zoey, Francis, Louis and Bill.
So a little background; the new DLC is called “Crash Course” and is meant to bridge the gap between the campaigns ‘No Mercy’ and ‘Death Toll’. The main purpose is to give players an awesome Versus experience (which is a good game mode.. but not what I play for), and is also playable on Survival and Campaign mode (YAY)! Valve say it’s meant to be a straight up 30 minutes game play and the AI director has been tinkered with. Well it’s available in September and it’s going to cost 560 MSP, or £4.76 in human currency.
I screamed a little.
Eveyone has a game they become obsessed with and play constantly. Don’t deny it, we can see it on your gamer list. Well mine at the minute is Left 4 Dead. It’s hardcore-survive-the-zombie-apocalypse. It is probably the most replayable game I have every played (even Call of Duty multiplayer eventually get dull). And the game got even better when I started to play it with friends.. AI can only get you so far. But even then.. this game is hard!
Well.. it depends on what difficulty you’re playing on. My friends and I are working towards the “What are you trying to prove?” achievement which means completing each of the four campaigns on Expert. According to various achievement websites, less than 10% of Xbox gamers have won it. No small task let me tell you! But after many MANY hours shooting as many undead creatures as possible I only have one more campaign to complete. Blood Harvest.
