Valve Plans Community Map For Next Left 4 Dead 2 DLC

Valve has announced via its Left 4 Dead Blog that Left 4 Dead 2 is set to get brand new DLC in the form of Matthew Lourdelet's community campaign entitled 'Cold Stream'. According to the blog post, Cold Stream boasts "innovative gameplay arenas and effects" while showing that "there are still plenty of new ideas in L4D2 modding."

The original plan was for Lourdelet to complete the campaign with Valve's help before quietly releasing it as DLC, but instead the developer has decided to allow the community to be "part of the process of taking his unfinished campaign and releasing it as DLC on the Xbox 360, PC and Mac."

As a non-story-driven campaign, Cold Stream will serve as an experiment to see how a DLC with no new audio or narrative is received. It sounds to us like Valve is hedging its bets for the DLC's success however, with the developer stating what players can expect from it: "The easiest starting point for new campaigns is the three remaining Left 4 Dead 1 campaigns, so the DLC will include those. We also want something brand new and Cold Stream is the perfect fit."

There's no name or date specified for the forthcoming Left 4 Dead 2 DLC as yet, although Valve does state that it will arrive sometime after Portal 2. "Why don’t we set some date in stone right now?" the Blog post continues. "Because the real answer to when we are going to release something is always – when it’s ready."

So, now you know! Portal 2 is out in April 2011, so expect to see the new Left 4 Dead 2 DLC - featuring the community Cold Stream campaign - after that.
