The Sacrifice, Left 4 Dead's thrilling comic, has concluded. It tells the story of how brave Bill went to the final respawn closet in the sky, as was revealed in The Passing, the Left 4 Dead 1 DLC released earlier this year. In a similar vein, The Sacrifice DLC has just shipped for free for both L4D 1 and 2, and lets you play through the fighty bit leading up to the climax of the comic. And the best part? Everything Left 4 Dead related has suddenly become ridiculously cheap.

Valve have released a cinematic trailer for the upcoming Sacrifice update For Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2, due out October 5th. The trailer features a couple of situations that might illustrate the 'Sacrificial gameplay' Valve say the update will include. Francis disturbs a witch, Zoe has a last stand on a bridge and Bill, well, he charges three tanks with a molotov cocktail. Check it out.

Part 2 of Valve's new Left 4 Dead comic, The Sacrifice, is out. In this instalment we get a peak at Zoe's traumatic backstory as the survivors settle in to life at the military base. Valve have revealed that they're planning to release the raw art from the comic without speech bubbles or sound effects so that Left 4 Dead fans can construct their own stories. The best ones will be featured on the Left 4 Dead blog.

What are you doing up? Get to bed! But if you can't sleep, a relaxing comic about zombies will sooth your addled brain and totally won't keep you up because you're scared of zombies. In the morning, I'll pore over it and expand this post if there's anything relevant to add. For now, though, start reading the comic here.
