We didn't get any added when they pushed the final versions out on PC so it's pretty much slim at best that the 360 will get any.

With 'The Passing' and 'The Sacrifice' they revealed the achievements before they released the content.

Well that achievement was added way before the final version of the DLC was out on Steam so I wasn't too surprised but it would have been nice to have some on both platforms.

If they were really that adverse to achievements, they could have opted to do what New Vegas and Dead Island did with in-game Challenges (I mean L4D already has an in-game achievement counter, which was nice). Or they could do a Halo or Call of Duty and have weekly community challenges, see how popular those are?

tl;dr Just because someone wants achievements doesn't mean they only give a shit about increasing their gamerscore by playing games.
Respect to you good sir, wish I could +rep you

The Passing probably had the best DLC achievements as a whole of any DLC I have ever purchased.. they were seamlessly integrated and varied and challenging. The Sacrifice greatly disappointed me in that there were only 5 for the 250 and all at the same extremely high GS, and the fact that they weren't even ALL CAPS like the rest of L4D2 struck me as very lazy. I'm not surprised that the trend continued and they didn't put forth any effort at all this time.

Makes me wish I hadn't kept this content in the back of my mind and checked on it intermittently for a year. The way that video games work now allows people to feel a certain relationship with the developers that they support, and I feel that Valve did not support its fans like they expect us to support the company. I won't be buying this and will put future Valve titles under more scrutiny before making an impulse buy.

I am SO glad I checked with you gus before purchasing that DLC; I was kinda suspicious already because on the Xbox purchase site Valve gave so little info on this add-on and no real way to 'try before you buy' If I had bought this and then found out there were mo cheevo's I'd be far beyond pissed!

Thanks for heads up on no chievos. you saved me 560 msp.

it doesn't seem like Valve to do that, maybe they just don't care anymore no that they got that big deal from sony for Portal 2.

Wow this whole thread is fast becoming one big long cry baby whine.
Real L4D fans don't give a f**k about a few little pointies on their GS.
So save yourself 560 MSP, go away and maybe come back when you're all grown up
and learn to enjoy the game again.

Well when you can buy L4D1 for the same price as Cold Stream and get all the levels accept for one, it kind of does matter. It gives you something to go for. Especially when there are other games you want to play.

I thought cold stream is a campaign originally made by a fan, right? That might be why we didn't see any achievements.

Boo Hoo, go to h3ll.
The achievements are important on the 360 version. That tells me to play it for fun on the PC version which is free...

Cold Stream is half off today, but thanks for saving me 280MSP, anyway.

Plus, isn't this a site dedicated to Xbox 360 achievements? What's unusual about skipping out on something that doesn't come with achievements? That's like saying "boohoo" to hunters who complain their weapons don't come with ammo: for me, it's a necessity.

This site is not only dedicated to achievements anymore, it's dedicated to everything xbox 360. It even has sections of other platforms and off-topic chatter. I could really care less about achievements these days, I just wants games that are pleasurable and make it worth the 60$ or less/more I threw at it. Dropping $3.50 when it was half off is a steal because you can still earn the achievements that are not linked to certain campaigns and replaying all the amazing levels that started Left 4 Dead, again, on an upgraded version is awesome.

Achievements were a major factor for this games replayability.
In the first game you had stuff like campaign with only pistols, no friendly fire, no healthpacks, ... on the second game there were a lot less, of these that required a full campaign run through with different objectives. The mutators kinda made up for that, but with the new DLC there was no such thing. Left4Dead has no story whatsoever and not real gameplay variety over the course of the game, so what is it driving you through the game? Achievements are one of the major points. Even though I still would've enjoyed the game without achievements I think I would have played it much less, especially the first one and I would say, that achievements are more important on this game than any other, so if they don't give us achs, they should include unlockables. Maybe have like 20 ingame challenges and after each 5 unlock one of the original campaigns.
However doesn't matter anymore since they decided to go with none. Still way better value than most of the DLCs out there.
