Zombie Army 4: Dead War is one of the better games for fans of the saturated genre, and sets itself apart with insane post-launch support and an abundance of DLC and expansions. Today, Zombie Army 4 is releasing Abaddon Asylum, a new campaign mission that continues the story with more bloodthirsty action and intense co-op gameplay. Alongside the new DLC, which includes other perks and content besides the campaign mission, Zombie Army 4: Dead War is joining hands with Left 4 Dead.

Included in a free Character Pack for all players launching alongside the Abaddon Asylum DLC, players can now take on the undead armies as one of four Left 4 Dead characters: Bill, Francis, Louis and Zoey. Suit up as your favorite character and get slaying! It's always nice to see Left 4 Dead make an appearance, even in smaller fashions like this, and it's even better when it's free.

You can watch the new Zombie Army 4: Dead War trailer on YouTube.

Zombie Army 4: Dead War is available now on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, PC, PS5, and PS4. It's also included in Xbox Game Pass, so you can play the game without paying upfront (Xbox Game Pass even includes the free Left 4 Dead Character Pack). You can also pick up the Season Pass 3 expansion for Zombie Army 4 to gain access to the latest DLC, including Abaddon Asylum.

Zombie Army 4: Dead War is certainly one of the best Xbox Game Pass games for zombie genre lovers, and won't have much competition in the space until Left 4 Dead's spiritual success, Back 4 Blood, launches later this year into Xbox Game Pass.
