This morning, Valve announced a new add-on for its immersive, co-op zombie killing game, Left 4 Dead. "The Sacrifice" is due for release on October 5 and will continue to chronicle the struggle between the remaining Left 4 Dead survivors as they make their way to the South. "The Sacrifice" will also introduce a new style of finale gameplay called "Sacrificial Gameplay", where the players can device who will give their life so that other may live.
Hidden within this news is the announcement that this DLC will be available for Mac users, after all: The DLC “The Sacrifice” will be available for the XBOX 360, PC, and Mac on October 5th. It will include the new Campaign “The Sacrifice” and the Left 4 Dead 1 campaign, “No Mercy”. In both campaigns you will be able to play as the Left 4 Dead 1 Survivors but you will be using Left 4 Dead 2 weapons and items against Left 4 Dead 2 monsters!
You can't have DLC for a game without the game being available for the platform.
Hooray! Finally, no more waiting to partake in a little bit of zombie killing.
We're waiting on confirmation from Valve, just in case the release date is a mistake. Fingers crossed.
