It's always a surprise when two very different elements come together to form something great but the latest news of Left 4 Dead 2's DLC that never was really took me for a spin. Movie director Drew Goddard recently mentioned that a DLC expansion was originally going to be created for the zombie shooter that would be based of Joss Whedon's horror film.

While the project has since been cancelled, Goddard stated that 'We actually were going to do a downloadable L4D2 expansion pack, where you'd fight in the Cabin world'. This 'cabin world' would introduce players to a new environment with a handful of new and exciting enemies.

So what happened to the project?

Goddard mentioned that 'MGM went bankrupt so the delay squashed it. But the people at Valve were still cool enough to let us use some of their monsters'.

The game was gonna be amazing. You were gonna be able to play in both the upstairs "Cabin in the Woods" world and the downstairs "facility" world with all the monsters. Believe me, I HATE all video games based on movies, they always suck, but porting Cabin into Left For Dead felt like the right fit. It pains me that it didn't happen -Drew Goddard

Definitely a case of an interesting DLC with real potential simply not working out. It's a real shame but the video game industry is a cruel mistress.
