The first DLC for Left 4 Dead 2 is coming in late March. As was previously reported, it is called “The Passing” and it concerns a meetup between the four survivors from the first game and the four survivors from the second. In the DLC we’ll get a new type of common-uncommon called the fallen survivor, a zombie that used to think they were immune, but weren’t. They will apparently occasionally drop supplies. Also coming are a comic book that should reveal more of the story and an add-on for the original game that will fill in the gaps of how they ended up in the sequel’s DLC. There’s also a bunch of screenshots if you like looking at things. (Kotaku)

There will be a special, Xbox 360-only prologue to Dead Rising 2 called Dead Rising: Case Zero. Word is it takes place in the time between the original game and the new one. It should be out right before DR2 is released August 31 (in North America anyway). (Kotaku)

News on DoubleBear’s still untitled zombie RPG is scant, but if you’ve got the time, there’s a wealth of information to be gleaned from this forum. (Iron Tower)
Because putting any two unrelated good things together must be even better, no matter how ridiculous the combination, there will be a game called Rock of the Dead. You know, like Rock Band. With zombies. (IGN)
If, for some crazy reason, a Resident Evil special edition of Monopoly sounds like a good idea to you, who am I to argue? (Kotaku)
