In addition to advancing the story, The Sacrifice introduces a new style finale featuring Sacrificial Gameplay where players get to decide who will give their life so the others may live.

The Sacrifice DLC for L4D1 is a separate download than The Sacrifice for L4D2.

In The Sacrifice for Left 4 Dead 1 gamers receive the complete Sacrifice campaign with maps playable in Campaign, Versus, and Survival.

In The Sacrifice for Left 4 Dead 2 owners receive The Sacrifice campaign playable with the Left 4 Dead Survivors. In addition, those with Left 4 Dead 2 receive L4D’s No Mercy campaign. Both campaigns are playable in Campaign, Versus, Survival, and Scavenge modes and both will feature the Left 4 Dead 2 Special Infected, items, and weapons.

The Sacrifice is targeted for release on October 5 and will be free for PC, while costing Xbox 360 gamers 560 MS Points.
