Left 4 Dead DLC Will be Free


There was a bit of stir in the comments section when DuBBle talked about the new Left 4 Dead DLC last week about whether Valve will be charging us for it. Thankfully Valve must have heard all of our nervous chatter and have declared that the DLC pack will be free for both PC and 360 gamers.

Press Release:


February 11, 2009 – The recently announced Left 4 Dead Downloadable Content (L4D DLC) will be delivered to Xbox 360 and PC gamers free of charge.
Due for release this spring, the DLC for 2008’s best-selling new game property on the PC and Xbox 360, is dubbed the L4D Survival Pack and introduces a new multiplayer game mode entitled, Survival, plus two complete campaigns for Versus Mode (Death Toll, Dead Air). A Critic’s Choice Edition of the game will be heading to retail stores this spring, and will include access to all the content introduced in the L4D: Survival Pack.
Left 4 Dead is a survival action game from Valve that blends the social entertainment experience of multiplayer games such as Counter-Strike and Team Fortress with the dramatic, narrative experience made popular in single player action game classics such as the Half-Life series of games.

One thought on “Left 4 Dead DLC Will be Free

  1. Excellent news isn’t it.

    It’s a testament to Valve’s place in the industry that they managed to get it out on the 360 for free. Either Gabe’s still got some sound mates in MS still or they moved heaven and earth to get it done. Either way, it’s really impressive that they managed to do that.

    It’s going to make other DLC very hard to justify being priced.
