One Left 4 Dead Character Won't Survive The Passing

Illustration for article titled One Left 4 Dead Character Wont Survive The Passing

Valve's poster for Left 4 Dead 2's The Passing downloadable content finally gets a tagline: Nobody Survives Forever. And while the original survivors will be showing up at the beginning of The Passing, only three make it to the end.

The news comes by way of Valve's Chet Faliszek, speaking to Geoff Keighley at GDC, as shown in the most recent episode of GameTrailers TV. As reported previously, The Passing DLC for Left 4 Dead 2 would be followed by downloadable content for the first game, and now we know how that's going to work.

While the original survivor's death will be readily apparent in the Left 4 Dead 2 DLC, the Left 4 Dead 1 downloadable content will have players working through the events leading up to the death, which will require someone on your four-player team make the ultimate sacrifice.

The comic released between the two sets of DLC will feature an idealized version of the events, while player choice figures into how it all plays out in the game proper.

Are you noble enough to die for your teammates?

Why do people despise the second cast of L4D? Oh wait, I know, its because they replaced the White woman with a Black woman... I am not trolling. I think that is exactly why. What else could explain the waves of hate directed specifically at Rochelle?

Well I dig the second crew and I think Rochelle is just as hot as Zoey, so bam. This may cause backlash but I think that squad #2 is worthy of defense.

addition: Oh, and hopefully, the one who dies will be based on who offers themself up in the L4D DLC and picked at random each play through in L4D2. I also like all the original survivors so it sucks to lose any of them.
