Today Valve announced the first downloadable content for Left 4 Dead 2.

And if you thought just four characters were loquacious for a game about killing zombies, now we’re getting eight characters all at once. The add-on, called “The Passing,” takes place after Left 4 Dead 2‘s Dead Center campaign, which will have players encounter the characters from the original Left 4 Dead game.

“The Passing will become the most important campaign in the Left 4 Dead story, as all the Survivors are being called together in one campaign,” said Doug Lombardi, VP of marketing at Valve in the press release.

The DLC will also include new maps for the Survival, Versus and Scavenge modes as well as a new co-op challenge mode, a new “uncommon common” zombie type, a new melee weapon and new firearm.

No pricing has been announced yet, but “The Passing” is slated for release in early Spring for PC and Xbox 360.
