Valve and Capcom have partnered to produce new crossover downloadable content (DLC) for their Zombie games Left 4 Dead 2 and Resident Evil 6. The content is going to be made available as free downloads for players of the PC versions of these games. Left 4 Dead 2’s main four characters and some of its especially ugly Zombie nasty concoctions will appear in Resident Evil 6. Meanwhile a sprinkling of Resident Evil nasties will appear in the PC version of Left 4 Dead 2.

Left 4 Dead 2 owners

If you are a Left 4 Dead 2 player your new Resident Evil inspired DLC will arrive in “spring”, which is vague, but should be pretty soon. Enemies from Resident Evil 6 such as Lepotitsa, Napad and Ogroman will appear in your Left 4 Dead 2 game.

Resident Evil 6 owners

If you own Resident Evil 6 for PC the new Valve collaboration DLC pack will add Coach, Nick, Ellis and Rochelle in a PC-exclusive ‘The Mercenaries No Mercy’ mode. Turning to the bad guys, L4D2 Special Infected, the Witch and a ‘Mini Tank’ will also make it into this special Resident Evil 6 DLC mode.

An interview with Resident Evil 6 producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi revealed that the crossover DLC packs came about following Capcom’s talks with Valve about putting Resident Evil 6 on to Steam. After a bit of chit chat the pair came up with this crossover DLC idea. Capcom has a history of crossover titles with other companies, especially in the beat-em-up game genre.

When asked about which game’s zombies are the best, Hirabayashi said, diplomatically “honestly, I really like both, either can make for a good zombie”. If you are a fan of either game you can watch the full interview above.

Thanks to C&VG for all the screenshots.

Free DLC? Sure, why not? Can't wait for RE6
So I wonder what “Spring” equates to in Valve time ;)
I'ts free, who cares? :)

Good to see some companies don't just treat us all like cash cows and actually value and rewards our custom.
This looks cool, looking forward to the L4D2 DLC. Has anyone else noticed the Facebook share button is messed up on here??
