    I don't mind paying for content so long as it's worth the money. I'm sure they wouldn't charge for some 2 level expansion on the PC at least. I'm expecting some thing big if they are going to charge.

    Really?
    L4D2 hasn't seemingly lasted at all. I was still playing L4D up until L4D2 came out. Now I play neither. A new storyline may get me interested for a few days, but paying for it? I'm afraid I am out.

    To be fair they are almost the same game, so obviously the sequel will run dry a little quicker.
    Although i do prefer l4d2 by far.

    Bought L4D2 and I didn't even played it in single player... I tried, but it seemed to me the same experience as L4D1... So I just spent 40€ for nothing at all... :/ Hope this DLC will revive my will to play L4D

    L4D1 > L4D2 tbh

    L4D1 was fun, loved the characters and the feel of the game.
    L4D2 was nowhere near as fun, got a bit of joy from trying the new infected (spitter and jockey rock, charger not so much)

    Valve are going to charge? i've put my cynical hat on. They will charge for the xbox 360 cos they have to, they've always said they would never charge for updates to their pc games... unless you've got a quote?

    There's no mention of what platform in the article, so I would assume that it's 360 charged, PC free. I'm prepared to be disappointed.

    Only for the characters IMHO

    The actual game is much better in L4D2, if only they could port the characters over (maps as well would be nice) It'd be perfect :D

    @cyrilthefish This is what you're looking for, you get a choice between the original campaigns and an updated version that includes new weapons/zombies/etc. and there's addons for the originals survivors and zombies should you wish.

    Dont agree.
    After playing L4D2, uninstalled L4D.

    Gotta agree with cyril, L4D2 has some noticeable improvements to the AI and gameplay (for one thing they've made it much more challenging with realism) but L4D1 characters were better IMO.

    @phuzz +rep for the link there mate - will definitely give that a try! If they could get the L4D1 characters to banter back and forth like the L4D2 characters as well that would be perfect.

    OT,
    ^^^ this makes me think that one or more of the old L4D1 characters are gonna be killed in this expansion. That could be interesting. However, if they plan on charging for the expansion (on PC) then I guess I won't find out.

    + rep for link. :thumb:

    I did actually look for something like it not long ago, but could only find references to very incomplete versions.

    This version isn't perfect (characters ported over but none of the voices) but playing about with it just now, the maps seem to work just fine :)
    (with some nice additions, ie no mercy now has some of the riot cops and hazard-suit uncommon infected, as well as some of the hard rain weather effects :D )

    I got l4d1 cheap in a sale so an expansion would be great, played the demo of l4d2 but didn't think much of it.

    l10d2 rocks only on 20 player vs servers, as the amount of rape is directly proportional to the number of players on the server.

    Increase the number, increases the hecticness of the play.

    OMG, just tried one (10vs10 vs mode), it's utterly bonkers :D

    first time i've ventured into an online server on my own too. sadly, they kept booting the lowest scoring players (so i lasted about 6mins lol) but was a lot of fun, and surprisingly lag free :)
