Left 4 Dead 2 DLC incoming... finally

Good news for fans of zombie kill-fest Left 4 Dead 2... the much anticipated Cold Stream DLC is soon to make its way on to our screens. It's been one hell of a wait but it sounds like it's going to be worth it. If you've had your fill of wandering around a Witch-infested mill or galloping across that crumbling bridge in the finale, then you'll be please to hear that the new add on will include Cold Stream, Blood Harvest, Crash Course, Dead Air, Death Toll, and No Mercy. Besides these shiny maps, there's a new weapon thrown in for good measure apparently.

We're still waiting for the release date - the official blog ( said this in mid-April:

We have released a pretty big update for Left 4 Dead 2 that includes map bug and exploits fixes. These changes will be coming to the Xbox 360 with the title update that will accompany Cold Stream’s release. Before we send the game off to certification, we want to test these fixes on the PC. So please, give these maps a play through and tell us what you think.

The Cold Stream DLC will include 21 maps in total - the Cold Stream, Blood Harvest, Crash Course, Dead Air, and Death Toll campaigns. Besides the massive amount of new content, 360 users will also be getting many of the bug fixes and changes we have implemented since the last update.

We don’t have a release date yet, but we will make sure to post the minute we do.
