Valve to deliver new Left 4 Dead campaign next month

By on August 4, 2009, 3:27 PM
Valve has announced that it will deliver new downloadable content next month for its popular zombie shoot-'em-up Left 4 Dead. The content includes a new campaign named "Crash Course" which will provide a "complete versus mode experience in just 30 minutes, resulting in a streamlined version of the game's existing versus campaigns."

The new campaign will take place between the current "No Mercy" and "Death Toll" campaigns, and is expected to feature new locations, fresh dialogue, an explosive finale, tweaked item spawning and a recharge timer for infected teammates. Gamers who play on the PC version of Left 4 Dead will be able to download the update free of charge via Valve's content delivery system, Steam. The unfortunate souls playing on the Xbox 360 will have to shell out 560 Microsoft points for the content - or about $7.

You can take a look at the new campaign's movie poster at Shacknews. Hopefully this will please the now 41,000+ "boycotters" of Left 4 Dead 2 - but, somehow I doubt it.

I also believe that Sims 3 will port over to Xbox/ps3.

Halo 3 will port over to PC and PS3.

Gear of War 2 will port over to PC/PS3.

World of Goo will port over to Xbox/PS3

I'm glady looking foward to seeing those soon.
