    Back 4 Blood (PC/PS5/XSX/PS4/XB1) - Zombie 4p Co-Op From the Developers of L4D & Evolve - 2021

    Developed by Turtle Rock in Partnership with WB
    Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Turtle Rock Studios today announced Back 4 Blood, from the creators and development team behind the critically acclaimed, co-op phenomenon Left 4 Dead. Back 4 Blood is designed from the ground-up as an original, premium title and marries the best of what made the co-op zombie shooter so successful with new features and state-of-the-art technology.

    “We are thrilled to partner with the proven Turtle Rock Studios team on Back 4 Blood to advance the co-op zombie genre forward with innovative multiplayer gameplay,” said David Haddad, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “The talented team at Turtle Rock has been developing amazing games together for a long time, and this is a great opportunity to work with them to create a new gaming universe built specifically with the large co-op zombie shooter community in mind.”

    “It’s hard to overstate what an awesome opportunity this is. We get to return to a genre that was born in our studio with over ten years of additional experience and zombie ideas racked up in our brains,” said Chris Ashton, Co-founder and Design Director, Turtle Rock Studios. “We also have some of the best teammates in the business at WBIE who understand our development process and are equally committed to our player-first mentality. We love being able to announce, so we can start working with the community right away.”

    “We are not resting on any past laurels. Our goal is to take all we’ve learned and push forward. We know that’s a tall order,” said Phil Robb, Co-founder and Creative Director, Turtle Rock Studios. “We’re growing the team considerably because we’re stepping up to the biggest challenge in this studio’s history. We know this title has to stand out and we fully intend to make that happen.”

    Coming June 22, 2021
    Warner Bros. Games revealed gameplay for Back 4 Blood, the upcoming first-person cooperative zombie shooter from Turtle Rock Studios, the critically acclaimed development team behind the ever-popular Left 4 Dead franchise. Fans can tune-in to the Back 4 Blood Gameplay Showcase on December 17, 2020 to get an in-depth look at the game with discussions featuring Turtle Rock Studios team members and even more gameplay. The event will begin at 10 a.m. PST/6 p.m. BST and will be streamed on the Turtle Rock Studios Twitch, YouTube and Facebook.

    Also announced was a closed PC alpha test, which will begin Dec. 17, 2020 immediately after the Back 4 Blood Gameplay Showcase and will run through Dec. 21, 2020. Players can register now at Back4Blood.com for their chance to participate and be one of the first to get their hands-on experience with the game. Back 4 Blood is scheduled for a worldwide release on June 22, 2021 for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC.

    “Turtle Rock Studios, the talented team that put the co-op zombie genre on the map, is the perfect partner for us with Back 4 Blood as we pursue this important genre of gaming,” said David Haddad, President, Warner Bros. Games. “This passionate development team is giving fans a new franchise that pushes this category of shooters forward with fun, frenetic combat.”

    “Our fans have been waiting a long time for us to return to our roots, and it’s amazing to finally show the world what we’ve been working on,” said Chris Ashton, Co-founder and Design Director, Turtle Rock Studios. “We are making this game with our community in mind and are firing on all cylinders to give players a compelling zombie experience that is unlike any other.”

    Back 4 Blood can be played online with a squad of four players or solo with up to three AI teammates. The game will also support up to eight players in online PvP (person versus person) multiplayer. The story takes place after a catastrophic outbreak where most of humanity has either been killed or infected by the parasitic Devil Worm. Hardened by unspeakable events and emboldened to fight for the last of humanity, a group of apocalypse veterans called the Cleaners have rallied to take on the infected horrors known as the Ridden and reclaim the world.

    So glad they confirmed PvP, I loved playing as a Hunter (or Boomer etc) in L4D.

    Warner Bros. Games and Turtle Rock Studios today released a new Back 4 Blood trailer providing an in-depth look at the game’s innovative Card System, a new rogue-lite feature that enhances your experience with each playthrough, ensuring every gameplay session is dynamic, intense and feels unique. Players can easily jump right into the action by choosing a pre-made default deck or dive into the Card System’s vast customization options to create their own fully personalized deck of cards.

    Back 4 Blood takes advantage of an adaptive A.I. known as the Game Director, which works behind-the-scenes monitoring the actions, health, and choices of players. It responds accordingly by changing environmental conditions, adding obstacles, and unleashing special Ridden mutations through Card System modifiers known as Corruption Cards. Players can change up the gameplay by utilizing specific cards to strategies against the Game Director, from amplifying equipment to reloading weapons, as they take on hordes of enemies in their path.

    Back 4 Blood is a first-person co-op zombie shooter from the creators of the critically acclaimed Left 4 Dead franchise and features thrilling, dynamic moment-to-moment gameplay and highly variable, customizable action to keep players coming back for more. The Back 4 Blood story takes place after a catastrophic outbreak where most of humanity has either been killed or infected by the parasitic Devil Worm. Hardened by unspeakable events and emboldened to fight for the last of humanity, a group of apocalypse veterans called the Cleaners have rallied to take on the infected horrors known as the Ridden and reclaim the world.

    Hoping they have alternate routes on their maps to keep things fresh also which that card system could toggle on/off. Loved me some L4D1/2, but taking the same path through a map every time got old.

    I could have bought an 11 pull and have 1000 gems left over, but all I got was this silly title.
