After being beta tested for the PC for months and months to work out the kinks for its eventual release for the Xbox 360, Cold Stream, the newest DLC for Left 4 Dead 2 has finally been given a release date. Coming out on July 24th, the new DLC will not include just the single new campaign, but reworked and re-tweaked versions of the remaining campaigns for the first Left 4 Dead to fit and work within Left 4 Dead 2‘s mechanics.
In addition to the total of 5 campaigns with the DLC, the devs have said that all the mutations will be available at any time with the update. This means users will no longer have to wait around for Gibfest to appear in the hopper to go for the expert difficulty achievements. With the date announced all that’s left is to wait for the release, and probably pricing too, though with a total of 5 campaigns, 4 from last game, hopefully it isn’t too much more than other DLCs.
Get out the gun oil and get ready to get your team back together to relive the rest of the Left 4 Dead campaigns and the new adventure Cold Stream on July 24th.
