Valve Announces Thanksgiving DLC Just in Time for the Holidays
Bellevue, WA – Just a week after the release of their zombie-survival sequel, Left 4 Dead 2, Valve Software has announced the first in what no doubt will be a series of themed Downloadable Content (DLC) packs for the game. The Thanksgiving Pack bridges the original title and its sequel by having all eight survivors meet to celebrate the holiday and give thanks that they survived the zombie apocalypse. The campaign, entitled “Pass The Stuffing”, starts the players among the zombie-infested floats of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and follows them as they fight through hordes of the infected, hoping to make it to the safe house in time for supper. Press release follows:
Bill, Louis, Francis, Zoey, Coach, Ellis, Nick, and Rochelle have waded through wave after wave of zombie hordes, fighting for their very survival in a world where a massive outbreak has doomed most of the population. Having been rescued close to a dozen times, the plucky band of survivors finally get a well-deserved respite, just in time for Thanksgiving! They decided to get together and celebrate their good fortune, but wait, whose turn was it to buy the turkey? The survivors are dropped right in the middle of a zombie-run Macy’s Parade and once again have to fight for lives–watch out for the giant Zombie Snoopy float!–in the hopes of making their way to a grocery store that’s still open, not overrun by zombies, and stocked with enough turkey, stuffing mix, and cranberry sauce to satisfy Coach! And then, when it seems like they’ve finally made it to the safe house to enjoy their meal, they have to work out how they are going to fit everyone around the table (no one wants to sit next to the Boomer) and who gets stuck at the kiddie table with The Witch.
