This is something I haven’t seen in a while. Free downloadable content? That’s almost unheard of. DLC is generally a chance for the gaming company to make anohter $10 a crack off of us and in this economy with all the layoffs in the gaming industry I’m completely confused. Nonetheless, the Left 4 Dead DLC is going to be free!
Included in the free downloadable content will be a new game mode and two new versus campaigns. Apparently there is no free DLC on the Xbox 360. So this one is either coming directly out of Valves pocket, somebody else is sponsoring it, or Microsoft has decided to let it slide. If it is the later, then this could lead to bigger and better things for the market place.
