If you’ve had a chance to see the film Cabin the Woods then you may have noticed that a few of the monsters in it appear to be very similar to Left 4 Dead 2‘s infected, well there’s a reason for this.

It turns out that the original plan was to have a crossover between Left 4 Dead 2 and Cabin in the Woods, with the film featuring the game’s infected and the game getting a new expansion based on the film, sadly it never came to be. Cabin in the Woods director Drew Goddard revealed the information during a Reddit ‘ask me anything’ segment, when he was asked by a fan about the infected similarities.

“We actually were going to do a downloadable L4D2 expansion pack, where you’d fight in the Cabin world, but then 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 to fill the cubes in the background (I had a lot of cubes to fill).”

According to Goddard players would have been able to explore both the Cabin and the “facility” world that was located underneath it.

Would you have liked to play this DLC? What other crossovers would you like to see? Let us know in the comments below.
