Left 4 Dead 2 DLC "The Passing" coming this week

By on April 19, 2010, 2:00 PM
After a minor delay, the first downloadable content for Left 4 Dead 2 is creeping ever closer. Titled "The Passing," Valve originally planned to shove the DLC out the door by late March. For an undisclosed reason, things didn't pan out as expected and the company switched the add-on's due date to a generic "spring" timeframe.

Last Friday, the L4D team made an official blog post that, among other things, hinted The Passing would appear this week. "Well... if it was coming out next week we would say right here - Left 4 Dead 2's The Passing is coming out next week and we will be updating the blog next week with more news on the release. There you go."

The Passing will cost about $7 (560 Microsoft Points) on the Xbox 360, but should be a freebie for PC gamers. Features include new game modes (indeed, plural), new weapons, new enemies, and players will meet three Survivors from the first Left 4 Dead.

Hopefully they get a lot of nice DLC ready for me when I buy this game later.. just waiting on a "good" sale. That and trying to get caught up on the rest of my backlog.
