Fans have been screaming for some good DLC for L4D and now they are getting it. Today Valve announced Crash Course campaign. It will have new single, co-op and multiplayer modes as well as a new map. Here’s the full press release:

MORE LEFT 4 DEAD DLC ANNOUNCED

Crash Course Campaign Due in September

August 4, 2009 – Valve, creators of best-selling game franchises (such
as Half-Life, Portal, Team Fortress, and Counter-Strike) and leading
technologies (such as Steam and Source), today announced the next major
downloadable content (DLC) update for its co-operative zombie thriller,
Left 4 Dead (L4D), the #1 new game title on Xbox 360 and PC in 2008

Entitled “Crash Course,” the latest DLC delivers new
single-player, multiplayer and co-operative gameplay to both platforms.
Targeted for release in September, “Crash Course” bridges the gap
between the end of the “No Mercy” campaign and the beginning of “Death
Toll” in the original game, expanding the game universe with new
locations, new dialogue from the original cast, and an explosive finale

While containing both Survival maps and a Co-operative Campaign, the
primary goal of “Crash” is to deliver a complete Versus mode experience
in just 30 minutes, resulting in a streamlined version of the game’s
existing Versus campaigns. A recharge timer for infected teammates has
also been added, and item spawn behavior has changed for more balanced
gameplay.

“Since the release of Left 4 Dead last November, the design team has
been excited about creating new experiences for this world and allowing
players to do the same, by releasing much of our internal toolset, like
the Survival Pack and Authoring Tools,” said Gabe Newell. “We’re
working with the fans toward the ongoing entertainment value of the
product.”

Left 4 Dead is an action horror game from Valve that blends the social
entertainment experience of multiplayer games such as Counter-Strike
and Team Fortress with the dramatic, narrative experience made popular
in single player action game classics such as the Half-Life series of
games. Released in November of 2008, L4D has earned over 50 industry
awards from outlets around the world and sold almost 3 million copies
worldwide.

Left 4 Dead: Crash Course is targeted for release in September and will
be available free of charge on the PC and for 560 Gamer points on Xbox
Live.
