New Left 4 Dead DLC
In a previous post I asked, “Is Left 4 Dead 2 on its way out?” It seems to be alive and kicking becase there will be new Left 4 Dead DLC coming to all of you L4D fans. A new community campaign called Cold Stream will be released along with the three remaining Left 4 Dead 1 campaigns AFTER Portal 2 has been released in April. That puts the yet to be named DLC release date to the end of April or shortly there after.
I would see this upcoming DLC release as an indicator that L4D3 is not likely to be released in 2011. It is apparent Valve’s focus still remains on boosting the current Left 4 Dead 2 and not of Left 4 Dead 3.
I still think we are becoming more likely to see a L4D3 built on the latest Steam game engine.
What are you thoughts about the Left 4 Dead 1 campaigns being ported to L4D2? If the maps are true replicas of the originals, I see little value remaining in L4D1.
My question to you is, would you welcome L4D 3 if it had all or some of the previous maps, special infected, survivors or game modes from L4D1 and L4D2?
