For everyone rabid for some more of the same zombie whackin’, you’ll be pleased to know that The Passing DLC for Left 4 Dead 2 will be released next week. For me personally, as an owner of Left 4 Dead 2, I’m only vaguely tickled by the news, the game seeming to exist on some other far off planet… You know what I mean? I might boot it up to see what its all about, but it might just get swept up in the undertow.
Also, the new episode will only feature 3 of the old survivors, which is slightly backwards to me. I mean, there is something to be said for innovation, but won’t that mean we’ll know which survivor died? I think the linear story arc hasn’t been worn out enough to warrant the revelation of the dead survivor before we see how they die. But perhaps I’m wrong.
