Part one of Left 4 Dead’s “The Sacrifice” comic is go!

With Valve’s recent reveal of their upcoming Left 4 Dead expansion The Sacrifice (which will be compatible with both Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2) came news of a digital-comic series to accompany the expansion. Part one of that comic series is now live and you can check it out here.

The Sacrifice - Part One

The expansion, which is due out in October, will also update the first game’s No Mercy campaign (the one with the hospital and the epic rooftop crescendo event) and include it for owners of the sequel. The Sacrifice will tell the tale of the previous L4D 2 expansion, The Passing, from the perspective of the original survivors. Find out how the original cast came to meet their successors and choose for yourself which member of the original cast is sacrificed to save the others.

The Sacrifice will be released as a free download for PC and Mac, while Xbox players will need to pay a fee to get their hands on the DLC.
