In what’s easily the best thing we’ve heard in the whole of today, Valve announced that Left 4 Dead 2’s forthcoming DLC will feature four familiar characters:


Coming in early 2010 for both the 360 and the PC, “The Passing” will somehow involve Bill, Zoey, Francis, and Louis. Valve VP Doug Lombardi calls it “The most important campaign in the Left 4 Dead story, as all the Survivors are being called together in one campaign.”

Not only will the DLC feature a new campaign, but it will bring along a suite of new Scavenge, Versus, and Survival modes, as well as an unannounced “[new] co-operative challenge mode of play.” It’s also packing a new melee weapon and firearm.

Ponder whether Valve’s definition of “passing” is literal or figurative on our message boards.
