    As promised, Valve has now released The Sacrifice, a free campaign add-on for both Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2. The DLC for Left 4 Dead 2 also has a version No Mercy (originally released for Left 4 Dead 1) available for a free download via Steam. Finally the Mac port of Left 4 Dead 2 is now available as well as promised.

    To celebrate, both games are now on sale for 66 percent off their normal price on Steam. Left 4 Dead 1 and 2 is just $6.49 each with a four pack available for each game for $20.30. You can also buy both games in a bundle for $10.19.[/p]

    A deal so sexy it hurts. New DLC for both games, L4D2 gets a L4D1 stage as well, Macs now can play the game. That's a metric ass-ton of game support. I thought I got a great deal during the Perils of Summer ($10.20+6.80=$17.00) but this blows even that away. And they're such damn good games too (though I prefer L4D1). Really, you folks need to pick this up. $10.19 for both games with a bunch more content, it's simply absurd to even try to pass this up. You won't regret it.

    Edit: Purchasing L4D2 during this sale will grant you 2 new items in Team Fortress 2: Ellis' Hat, and a frying pan. If you already own L4D2, you will 'find' the items during the next few times you play TF2.

    Add me on Steam (username = injected11) if you buy either one!

    Fuck yes, I'm buying them both. With some settings tweaked they should be able to run well on my PC.

    £7.81 for both games...damn that's a good deal but I already got them both for presents but shit I love Steam sales! Got The Sacrifice but no idea when I'll have to play it.

    Is the Aussie release of L4D2 still censored to fuck?

    You don't need to do anything to get the new DLC other than update your game.

    Did that to me on the Borderlands sale, showed up once it fully downloaded and installed which was odd.

    But how did you download it while it wasn't in your list? I didn't get a "Finish and go to download" page or anything.

    Edit: nvm. just got added to my list:)

    I'm getting shit download speeds on both right now, although L4D isn't that bad (700KB/s right now and 70% done) and L4D2 is just snail's pace (5% done and like 20KB/s).
