Left 4 Dead 2 Cold Stream gets release date

Left 4 Dead 2 new DLC release date confirmed on Xbox 360

Left 4 Dead 2's delayed DLC for the Xbox 360 is set for release, according to its developer, Valve.

Cold Stream, the new DLC for Valve's zombie-apocalypse shooter, will be made available via Xbox Live this Friday, 3rd August, and will cost punters just 560 Microsoft Points (around £5.00).

Its release has been confirmed on Twitter by the game's publisher, who tweeted: "We are set for the title update and the Cold Stream DLC to be released this Friday".

Cold Stream was delayed for the Xbox 360 after it was first announced back in February of this year. It's currently available for PC and Mac on Steam.

The DLC is the third pack of downloadable content for Left 4 Dead 2 and is also the first DLC Valve has released that was made by fans. Cold Stream contains five campaigns; Blood Harvest;; Crash Course; Dead Air, Death Toll and the entirely fan-made Cold Stream.

All mutations are also available such as Lone Gunman or Last Man on Earth, although players will need to own the previous DLC, The Passing, to access them.
