Valve has announced “The Passing”, the first add-on for Left 4 Dead 2.

The DLC, targeted for an “early 2010” release on both the Xbox 360 and PC, will bring the original Left 4 Dead survivors into Left 4 Dead 2, as well as new single-player, multiplayer and co-operative gameplay. Pricing is yet to be announced.

The Passing takes place just after L4D2’s Dead Center campaign. Set in a small town in rural Georgia, players assume the role of the L4D2 Survivors as they meet with the L4D1 characters.

In addition to the new co-operative campaign and associated narrative, “The Passing” will include new arenas for Survival, Versus and Scavenge mode and introduce a new co-operative challenge mode of play. The Passing will also include a new “uncommon common” zombie class, melee weapon, and firearm.

“The Passing will become the most important campaign in the Left 4 Dead story, as all the Survivors are being called together in one campaign,” said Doug Lombardi, VP of marketing at Valve.

“It will also be a huge offering of new gameplay content, with something new for every game mode plus a new uncommon common and weaponry.”
