Left 4 Dead - Cold Stream DLC release date

8bitfix says - The game may be almost 3 years old, but that does not mean that Valve is done with it! Valve has just announced that the Cold Stream DLC is finally getting release next month! (DLC, Industry, Left 4 Dead, Left 4 Dead 2, Xbox 360)

Very nice to see valve supporting L4D for such a long time
VanillaBear  +   977d ago
Well the second game anyway

The first game they said they would still support they decided to kill off soon after they released L4D2...it's funny how the boycott group turned out to be right in the end

They first spilt the community, they then killed off one of the main characters and now they seemed to just stop supporting it all together.

Almost all of the first game's levels are available as DLC in the second game. DLC for PC is free, too. I'll take that.

It's so strange. L4D2 came out a year after the first, but now they support the second? Maybe they wanted to see if they could get away with yearly rehashes, but they realized the Steam community weren't braindead (no pun intended) like the xbox one.

They did still support the first game after L4D2 came out. The Sacrifice was added and was supported for both games and The Last Stand was a free dlc horde map.

There is also plenty of good user created maps for both games on the PC. Really its the console version that gets no support since Valve has to charge for it so they wait to release a big dlc pack.
Just like the blog said all the maps from the first game that are already released on the PC are coming to the 360 version but it probably won't be free.

@ vanillabear

are you seriously still sour about valve releasing l4d2?

There's no way you can deny that l4d2 is anything less than a sequel with the new content they've added. Be it melee weapons, new special infected, characters, maps, firearms, bile bombs, mutations, etc. To me, that sounds like way more than any DLC I've heard of.

Not to mention it's only $20 right now, and has been on sale for about $6 plenty of times.

They tried something different, got some negative feedback from folks like you, and learned from it. That's why L4D2 currently has pretty much all of the content from the original embedded within it.

So don't go saying they "split" the community, if you're one of the "split" community members whining about it still, you either haven't found a job within the last 2-3 years or are just too lazy to find some quarters buried in your couch to buy the game when it's on sale.

As far as them killing off Bill? That's something called storytelling. Since you've even bothered to mention it, they obviously have your attention, shock factor at it's finest. I'd hate to see how you'd react to The Walking Dead comics. :P

You must have bought l4d on the wrong platform vanillabear. It's practically a crime to play this game on xbox when you can do so much more on PC.

Why does it say L4D2??
This DLC is for the first Left 4 Dead..........
Sgt_Slaughter  +   977d ago
Um... what? It says it right on Valve's website through the freakin' link! L4D2 is right.

Clearly he is right and I'm going insane, since I've been playing the map on PC in L4D2, not L4D1 for over 6 months.

Some of you need to leave your PC and go outside more often.

yeah i agree its way better on PC. Except for split screen.

Seriously, i was so disappointed to see that the PC version had no spilt screen. Im not playing L4D on my own, and my friends dont have gaming PCs. I can connect 4 controllers to the PC. A few games support it.

I'll never in my life understand why L4D and CoD for the PC leave the feature out. There actually no reason.

If i were to rebuy L4D i would get it for 360, simply for the split screen.

There's a beta map available, but with the release of the full map, things might be different.
AgreeFairy  +   977d ago
I'd rather have L4D3 (only if they make it more like L4D1).
user5467007  +   977d ago
With L4D characters

I don't care that Bill is dead, I'm sure they could make it so the DLC was just a "What If" scenario where the old survivors went south instead of North...

Non Cannon = Bill being Alive

Awesome but I want HL3 already....lol

Just make a sequel?
givemeshelter  +   977d ago
I love the game
h311rais3r  +   977d ago
My problem with l4d2 was the cast/characters. I HATED them. They all just got annoying really fast and ha no character to them. The L4D 1 cast was much better and more entertaining because you had 4 completely different personalities.

2 They were just so unlike able. I mean how many times can one guy hear "anybody know what suck the head means!?"
user5467007  +   976d ago
The whole "Keith" thing got old really fast from Ellis...then he ended up becoming annoying. Least Francis "I hate" were entertaining

I don't understand why they didn't kill Rochelle off instead of Bill.

L4D3 better not use the L4D2 survivors I really want the old ones back...you can't beat Zoe and her film refrences
Ducky  +   976d ago
Killing a character that is disliked by almost everyone doesn't carry the same emotional impact as killing a character that people do care about.

I doubt Valve would re-use characters in a sequel. They'll just make 4 new characters.
That's too far in the future though. If Valve is going to make a game with the number '3' in it, then it has to be Half-Life.

user5467007  +   976d ago
Yeah but it's L4D...a game which they said isn't about story. The only point they wanted to get across as they said themselfs is not everyone can survive forever, so killing Rochelle off wouldn't of mattered either way.

I mean Bills death wasn't emotional because L4D is not that kind of game where you can make an emotional death...especaily when we've only played the character for one game. If it was on the third game and they killed him off in a lengthy cinematic then I would probably care more.

At the end of the day they just killed off one of the good characters for nothing.
WeskerChildReborned  +   977d ago
Wow, the game has been out for a while and it still has DLC. Amazing developer Valve is.
iamlegend9999  +   977d ago
Holy shit. This still hasn't came out yet. This has been in beta for months.
Totoro17  +   976d ago
Try a year lol...you 360 players are in for a treat...it's not the best DLC, but it's better than The Sacrifice (man I hate The Sacrifice). If anything, you non-PC gamers deserve it to yourselves to build a cheap PC and get this game. On the PC, you get customizable maps that are far better than the official DLC maps that Valve has brought (check out the I Hate Mountains campaign on YouTube...blew me away!). L4D forever!
iamlegend9999  +   975d ago
Yeah i've seen those. That was one of the reasons i wanted a gaming pc. Those customizable maps are awesome.
tominator316  +   977d ago
Omg yes can't wait for this went bk on this on my Xbox the other day! Thanks valve!!!!
ALLWRONG  +   976d ago
Been a while, I thought they may have forgotten Xbox owners.

They should make a PS3 version but with all the time passed I doubt it.
Jazz4108  +   976d ago
That's like saying they should make a metal gear 4 version for 360 even though many years have passed. If sonys console was not so hard to program and late to the party then they might have gotten some of the 360s exclusives and the ones they did get were piss poor ports upto a year or two later than the 360. I gurantee if metal gear 4 comes to the 360 if would play just as well or better and have no installs for every chapter every time you play it. Bluray is the reason for sonys mandatory game installs. I have no reason or excuse for sonys slow monthly firmware updates as that's just nuts after you have used the 360 and live. As far as lfd2 I'm glad to see valve still supporting the game on pc and 360.

Good timing for me. Been playing quite a bit of both L4D games on the 360 this year during my down time between new releases. Quite interested to see what this new campaign mission will play like. Hope the cheevos are reasonable.
