The next DLC pack for Left 4 Dead 2 will abandon the story-based approach of Sacrifice and the Passing, in favour of enabling greater freedom in the campaigns, Valve has announced.

The bulk of the new DLC will be the three remaining Left 4 Dead 1 campaigns ported across to the sequel. Then you’ll get something new in the form of the Cold Steam campaign from community modder Matthew Lourdelet.

“He recently shared it with us and we love it so far but it isn’t done,” said Valve. “We were tempted to have him quietly finish it with our help and release it as part of an upcoming DLC.

“Tempted… but we decided against that. Instead, we think we have a better idea. We want you the community to be part of the process of taking his unfinished campaign and releasing it as DLC on the Xbox 360, PC and Mac.”

The new DLC pack will be released when it’s done, sometime after Portal 2 (April 22).

Head over to the Left 4 Dead blog to find out how you can get involved.

As has been the case with all previous Left 4 Dead 2 DLC, this latest pack will almost certainly be released for free on PC/Mac, with Xbox 360 gamers made to pay – even if Valve would rather release it for free.
