Turtle Rock Studios, the talented team behind the brilliant Left 4 Dead series, has finally lifted the lid on its spiritual successor Back 4 Blood. During The Game Awards we not only got a very L4D style co-op cinematic chock full of zombie archetypes (including a new Mega Zombie) but some actual gameplay footage to boot.
And you can sign up now for the chance to play the Closed Alpha which is set to kick off on December 17 -- head here for that. The following gameplay is from the Alpha build. And from what we see here, yeah, this is basically Left 4 Dead 3. Awesome.
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.
“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.”
And here's the cinematic trailer showcasing the new characters.
Back 4 Blood is due for release June 22, 2021 for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC.
