This exciting chapter serves as the prequel to The Passing, which is a downloadable episode where the original Left 4 Dead survivors encounter the new crew from Left 4 Dead 2. That said, The Sacrifice details the events that led to that point, as the group make their way south through swarms of undead freaks.
It’s no surprise that L4D and its sequel have remained popular. Valve’s thrilling first person shooters are both thoroughly enjoyable co-op adventures as well as casual ways to pass some time. It also doesn’t hurt that each blood-soaked action romp stars thousands of rotting zombies that perish in a blaze of gore.
That means you’ll once again step into the shoes of Zoey, Francis, Bill or Louis, except there’s a twist. Valve plans to introduce Sacrificial Gameplay to the equation, where one survivor will give his or her life so the others may live.
Move on to Left 4 Dead 2, and you get The Sacrifice, playable with the Left 4 Dead Survivors. On top of that, you score the No Mercy campaign, and both campaigns are playable in Campaign, Versus, Survival, and Scavenge modes, featuring the Left 4 Dead 2 Special Infected, weapons and items. As Valve put it, Yes, Zoey with a chainsaw!
