After over a year of play testing, Left 4 Dead 2’s Cold Stream DLC will finally be available for XBox 360, PC, and Mac on July 24th. It will consist of a fan-made campaign, as well as updated versions of the various chapters from the first Left 4 Dead game. These refurbished maps – Death Toll, Dead Air, Blood Harvest, and Crash Course – will all be playable with L4D2’s new weapons and characters. According to the L4D blog, there will be “other surprises and details” revealed at a later date.
I'm a new dad, gaming machine, and beard aficionado. With a little one in the house, I've come to embrace the single-player experience, as it is much less likely to send me into a profanity-laced, controller-throwing tantrum. Writing and video games are two of my greatest passions, so this is a natural fit for me. As long as it doesn't require me to perform coordinated dance moves in front of my Kinect, i'm willing to pen my thoughts on it. Aside from gaming, I love music (Smashing Pumpkins), coffee (Red-Eye), and sushi (Yellowtail). All offerings of my aforementioned favorites will be accepted with open arms and, if you're lucky, i'll let you touch my beard. Just don't pull on it. That hurts.
