Left 4 Dead ‘Survival Pack’ hits Xbox LIVE and PC very soon

You’re ready to pop in that Left 4 Dead disc again, right? Well, tomorrow seems like the perfect time. Valve’s first bit of downloadable content for L4D, the “Survival Pack” will hit Xbox LIVE at “roughly 2 A.M. PST” this April 21.

The PC version of the downloadable content is slated to hit “later in the day” according to a Valve press release sent out this afternoon.

“Survival Pack” is free and will probably rock. It’s packing two new campaigns for Versus Mode and a new game mode called Survival Mode — a no holds barred zombie fragfest, that basically resembles the Finale portion of the Campaign Mode. A recent post on the official L4D blog by Kerry Davis and Scott Dalton indicated that Survival is anything but a peaceful romp. “Given the extreme pace of Survival Mode, the number of zombies killed in a single round often outnumbers an entire campaign.” Excuse me, I just crapped my pants.

Did I mention it’s free? Yeah, it’s free.
