And Now, Some New Details About The Upcoming Left 4 Dead DLC

New details about the upcoming new Left 4 Dead 2 DLC have been revealed in a somewhat circumspect update on the official Left 4 Dead blog. We know what it’s going to be called, and what it does. We just don’t know when you’ll be able to play. DRAMA!

The new DLC will be called ‘Four Swordsmen of the Apocalypse’. It’s a survival pack in which you and 4 friends fight off wave after wave of zombies using only swords. “Armed with only swords the survivors face near continuous streams of Special Infected ready to be sliced and diced.” That sounds fairly awesome, though we’ll of course have to wait and see when it launches. Which will be… sometime. “Now that we have a solid version of the maps (some minor changes still coming),” the post says, “we are focused on the DLC and getting some pesky bugs out of the shipping version. As soon as we have a release date we will let you know.

They’re currently also deciding on another Mutation, taking votes on Twitter. You can tweet your preference, with the most tweets deciding the winner. As of this post, it’s looking like Versus Survival will win out.

four players with swords? sounds like a map or mod that someone in the community made just for fun, not a legitimate expansion to the game. nevertheless, its l4d, so it will be fun anyway :)
