"Left 4 Dead" fans have something new to look forward to. It is not a new game, but fans can get the chance to play the game's beloved characters very soon!

"Left 4 Dead", otherwise known as "L4D," characters Bill, Francis, Louis, and Zoey are set to return as DLC characters in "Zombie Army 4: Dear War."

All characters will be playable and the Left 4 Dead Character Pack is free for all players on all platforms, according to Polygon

This is not the first time the "L4D" survivors crossed over to a "Zombie Army" game. The four characters, alongside "Left 4 Dead 2" characters Coach, Ellis, Nick, and Rochelle, all made an appearance in the "Zombie Army" Trilogy in 2015.

"Left 4 Dead" characters aren't the only ones gaming fans can look forward to in the latest "Zombie Army 4" DLC. 

Per a report by PC Gamer, the DLC characters come alongside a new mission called Abaddon Asylum. Abbadon Asylum, which is included in the Return to Hell campaign, requires players to fight their way into an asylum and to ultimately defeat a villain named Baron Umbra. 

Also included in the DLC are a World War 1 outfit, World War 2 headgear pack, Zombie Tank weapon skins, and the M1940 SMG.

"Left 4 Dead" is a survival horror game featuring zombies published in 2008 by Valve, the same developers behind "Portal." Its main characters, Billy, Francis, Louis, and Zoey, find themselves dealing with the aftermath of a zombie outbreak and must find ways to survive throughout the game. 

The game is playable on Microsoft Windows, Xbox 360, and Mac OS X.

A sequel, "Left 4 Dead 2," was released a year later with a new set of characters, Coach, Ellis, Nick, and Rochelle, and the same gameplay as the first game. The sequel is playable on Microsoft Windows, Xbox 360, Mac OS X, and Linux.

"L4D 2" remains as the last game to be released in the series. DLC content has been released for the fans throughout the years. The latest DLC, The Last Stand, was released in 2020.  

Both games have likewise been made backwards compatible on Xbox One
