According to a Microsoft press release issued this morning, Left 4 Dead's Survival Pack DLC will be released on April 21. This release concerned the Xbox 360 version but Valve traditionally releases its PC content in a timely manner, and has previously stated that it will come by April 21.

The free Survival Pack adds the new Survival game mode, where players are given time to dig in before fending off unceasing zombie hordes in an attempt to survive as long as possible. Survival Mode is played on 12 new maps--11 being sections of existing levels and 1 created especially for Survival Mode, Lighthouse.

The Survival Pack also brings Versus mode to the final two co-op campaigns, Dead Air and Death Toll. This release coincides with the release of Left 4 Dead: Critics Choice Edition, which contains the original game plus the Survival Pack.

Valve has been contacted for confirmation of the PC release date.

Remember, this is about the 360 DLC. PC may or may not come sooner.

The pack includes the new survival mode, which challenges players to hold out against a never ending wave of infected for as long as possible, as well as the addition of the Dead Air and Death Toll campaigns in Versus mode.

Valve has previously said that the DLC pack will be released on Xbox 360 and PC simultaneously, so we'd say it's a fair bet that mouse and keyboard gamers will see the add-on on the same date.

What makes me really angry is that after all this waiting only one of the survival mode maps is actually new content. That is just sad.

You do realize Valve is a really small company right? They are working on Death Toll and Dead Air in Versus, Survival Mode, re balancing all the current maps for it, Portal 2, HL2 Ep3, and TF2 Upgrades. Out of the 190 people that work there only a handful are actually mappers. I read at some point they spend on average about 300 to 400 hours on each map. It hasn't even been that long of a wait. Quit *****ing.
