L4D and L4D2 Cast To Meet in “The Passing” DLC December 14, 2009

Basically, this.

Today, Valve announced what will surely be the most anticipated crossover since the Jetsons met the Flintstones in the first of Left 4 Dead 2’s add-ons, “The Passing,” which is set to release in early 2010.

“The Passing” promises to have the original Left 4 Dead cast of Bill, Francis, Zoey and Louis meet up with their L4D2 counterparts. Madcap antics are sure to ensue.

Set after the “Dead Center” campaign of L4D2, the new DLC takes place in a rural Georgian town which is apparently a hot-spot for survivors of a zombie apocalypse.

In addition to the  story update, “The Passing” will also include new maps for the Survival, Scavenge and Versus modes, as well as “new co-operative challenge mode,” along with a couple new weapons and an “uncommon common.”

I wonder how adding four more survivors into the mix will change gameplay, as the current formula seems to work so well. Maybe the “new co-operative challenge mode” will add some awesome 8-player co-op action, but until we hear more, we can’t be sure.

I’m sure looking forward to having the old gang back, at least for a campaign. There’s just something warm and familiar about the way that Louis says “pills” that the new voice actors just can’t capture.
