Left 4 Dead 2 updated with new, free fan-made DLC
After eight years, Left 4 Dead 2 has new DLC made by fans and it’s completely free, but only for the PC version.
You’d be forgiven for thinking that Left 4 Dead 2 had been… well, left for dead considering the game hasn’t had any major updates since 2012.
But, to everyone’s surprise, it was confirmed recently that new DLC was in development, made by fans and fully endorsed by Valve, and it’s out today.
Titled The Last Stand, it comes with a brand-new campaign based on the Lighthouse map, a whopping 26 new survival maps, new melee weapons like shovels and pitchforks, 30 new achievements, and other minor additions like fixes and reworked animations.
And best of all, it’s completely free. What’s more, if you don’t own Left 4 Dead 2, you can play it for free on Steam throughout the weekend. And if you like what you find, you have until the end of 28 September to buy it for less than £2.
The only downside is that the DLC is only available for PC versions of the game, with there being seemingly no word on it coming to the console versions.
Some fans are still desperate for a Left 4 Dead 3 to be made and old rumours claimed that a Left 4 Dead VR game is in development.
A spiritual successor from Turtle Rock Studios, called Back 4 Blood, is defiantly underway for current gen consoles and PC, although there’s still no release date for it.
Judging by the recent reviews on Steam from fans, though, this new DLC is more than enough to keep them happy for the time being.
Left 4 Dead 2 is available on PC and Xbox 360.
