DLC (short for DownLloadable Content) is add-on content for a given video game that is distributed via download after the game's release. While DLC generally costs money on consoles, Valve have traditionally released DLC for their PC games free of charge. DLC will be automatically downloaded and installed as with any normal patch.

DLC will generally add new assets to a game that may be accessible to developers, including new maps, entities, sound effects, etc.
