Valve is being cool again, shucks. They are giving us a free comic to enjoy.
You know how they promised a new DLC for Left 4 Dead (not number 2) eons ago? Well they are still planning to get that to us, The Sacrifice, which follows the original survivors up till and after one of the members die PERMANENTLY. For those of us who've invested a lot of emotional and gaming energy in L4D (as I have, writing my academic thesis on the game), the death of a well-loved character can be quite saddening.
I know, characters die all the time in video games but Valve manages to make theirs all that more real and identifiable. And this comic promises to do the same.
Part 1 is up. Explains what happened to the survivors after they get picked up by the APC at the end of Dead Harvest (the farmhouse level). Click here.
