A new chapter in Valve's Left 4 Dead series is less than a week away. Due October 5, The Sacrifice will be available to folks with the original game or its sequel. The official trailer was released a few hours ago, and you can view it below.
I think I just got goosebumps. And there's more. The first three installments of an expansive four-part comic that tells the back story of each of the original Left 4 Dead characters are already online (and available in handy PDF format downloads, no less). Part four will be released on the same day as the DLC, which is I guess what we're calling expansion packs now.
Back when Left 4 Dead 2 was announced, some owners of the original game whined that it should've been a free expansion rather than a standalone title. Apparently, if a developer supports franchises like Counter-Strike and Team Fortress with a seemingly endless stream of no-cost updates, gamers expect the same treatment with all their titles. Perhaps this freebie, released nearly two years after Left 4 Dead first hit Steam, will ease their pain.
