Left 4 Dead 'The Sacrifice' DLC Coming October 5th
Written Monday, September 27, 2010 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
'The Sacrifice' is coming to both Left 4 Dead 1&2 next week and is a prequel to Left 4 Dead 2's 'The Passing' DLC, which is currently on the XBL Marketplace for 560 MS Points.
Telling a new story from the perspective of the survivors as they all journey South, The Sacrifice's big draw is the introduction of a new 'sacrificial gameplay' finale, which places the decision of who croaks and who survives in your hands.
The Sacrifice is available as separate downloads for both Left 4 Dead titles. In the Left 4 Dead 1 version, you'll get the full The Sacrifice campaign with maps playable in Campaign, Versus and Survival. Meanwhile, the Left 4 Dead 2 version lets you play through The Sacrifice campaign with the Left 4 Dead survivors and also gives you L4D's No Mercy campaign for Left 4 Dead 2.
Both The Sacrifice and No Mercy are playable in Left 4 Dead 2's Campaign, Versus, Survival and Scavenge, and feature L4D2's Special Infected, items and weapons. Bill, Zoey, Louis and Francis with chainsaws, axes and frying pans?! Yes, please!
The Sacrifice will be available from October 5th on the Xbox Live Marketplace for 560 Microsoft Points.
