Valve announces 'The Sacrifice,' a new DLC chapter for Left 4 Dead 2 and Left 4 Dead

Above: Which one should be replaced with a pile of gibs?

Good news everyone, new Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2 DLC is on the way (and they said Valve was going to abandon L4D1)! The Sacrifice takes place just before the events of the previous DLC chapter, The Passing, and stars the original cast of Francis, Zoey, Bill and Louis. And, as you know if you played The Passing, one of them dies. Probably horrifically.

It's the first time the original cast will be playable in L4D 2, and to make things more interesting, you can play the new DLC according to the determined storyline, or you can choose to off whichever of the four original survivors you deem deserving. Oh, and if you download the Left 4 Dead 2 version, Valve has thrown in L4D1's No Mercy campaign for good measure. What a nice bunch of fellas!

The new DLC will be free on PC and Mac, but, of course, will cost you some Microsoft Fun Bucks on 360. No release date has been announced.

Who will you kill?

    I wish I could kill Nick, that douchebag, always trying to rape the witch. It makes me want to let the witch eat him.
  • Outlander - August 24, 2010 6:14 p.m.

    I'd probably Kill Bill. Not because I don't like him. I like all the L4D1 survivors. [I just fucking hate Rochelle.] It just seems right that the old vet who has probably lived a full life to go out with a bang most likely to save the others. At least I like to think of it that way.

    Would you like the Funny Money?

    Kill Zoey - you hate women (possibly a sexist) Kill Louis - you hate black people (possibly a racist) Kill Bill - you hate old people (possibly an age-ist or whatever they call it) Kill Francis - you hate haters (possibly a hippie)

    O fuck you cyberninja...ass(ish) but yeah no one has said francis.. so I will cause I fucking hate him.. but I think that is rooted in me hating his kind in the real world

    Spoiler: The Old Man who wanted the Cola is the one who died.

    So is it the same for both L4D1 and 2 or are they seperate?
  • GamesRadarTylerWilde - August 23, 2010 10:03 p.m.

    I haven't heard whether or not you have to buy the DLC twice if you want to play it on both L4D and L4D2. I'd guess you would, but that's just a guess. But if you have L4D2, I'm not sure why you'd want to play the new chapter on L4D as well?

    Killing that dumb ass Louis. I don;t know if its the AI combined with a subtle racism of the online players, but every time I played the original, Louis would just jump into my line of sight and get shoot becuase he is a total dumb ass.
  • Baron164 - August 23, 2010 9:30 p.m.

    I had heard originally if you bought the dlc it would work with both games so you'd only have to buy it once. Is this true or no? I'm looking forward to it either way, I just don't want to have to buy the same thing twice for the 360.
  • Jacko415 - August 23, 2010 9:19 p.m.

    I really love you Valve... especially adding in No Mercy to L4D2
  • HitmanSB07 - August 23, 2010 9:08 p.m.

    one dlc, awesome..with this and the me2 dlc announced today i'm really happy...and need more points.
  • watchyourmouth - August 23, 2010 9:03 p.m.

    Louis... he was the worst... waking witches and crap.. i hated that guy.
  • oufour - August 23, 2010 9:02 p.m.

    it's one DLC but for both L$D 1 and 2. 2 also gets some extra goodies.
  • batmanboy11 - August 23, 2010 8:48 p.m.

    I should really get around to buying Left 4 Dead 2. I don't know why I haven't yet...
  • HitmanSB07 - August 23, 2010 8:28 p.m.

    So there are two dlc's? or just the one for both? I'm confuzzled :P
  • Cyberninja - August 23, 2010 8:20 p.m.

    i say it would be really cool if you kill someone different in the sacrifice and they were in (spoiler alert) bills place for the passing.
  • shaft121 - August 23, 2010 8:15 p.m.

    No Firestorm. In the DLC, you can actually choose who dies. Maybe YOU should read the article again. Specifically the line "or you can choose to off whichever of the four original survivors you deem deserving"
  • Fiirestorm21 - August 23, 2010 7:59 p.m.

    All those are seriously suggesting other characters die besides the one who actually died just before Passing needs to either have their heads screwed on a little tighter or needs to read the article again. (Assuming they actually have played L4D2...if not they're forgiven.) Only one of the survivors is going to die, and it's the same one that is found dead by Nick, Coach, Ellis, and Rochelle at the end of the Passing. That said, I'd like to see how Valve manages to pull off killing one of the player characters while people are, well, playing them. It might just be the end cutscene, which will still be fine, but I'd like to think Valve is going to come up with this awesome interactive way of dramatically showing of the death.
  • VTheSystemV - August 23, 2010 7:51 p.m.

    I would kill Bill so the story is all and well (and also he's got dementia. JK I made that up), but also Louis. Have had some problems with that man in the past which can easily be cleaned up with his death.
