What do we know about the upcoming zombie shooter? Here’s everything about Back 4 Blood release date, gameplay details and more.
Developed by the same studio that also created Left 4 Dead, the new zombie shooter will land on Xbox Game Pass this year. The four-player cooperative zombie shooter offers immersive action, lots of zombie blood and new-gen graphics. The new game will also have that familiar feeling that we used to get while playing Left 4 Dead games.
Turtle Rock Studios have been developing Back 4 Blood for some time. During the Xbox and Bethesda showcase, we received lots of other details about the game like the open beta period. We have listed everything to know about the upcoming title, filled with zombie-slaying action.
Back 4 Blood Gameplay
The game feels like Left 4 Dead 3 in its essence. Knowing that the team behind the game is the same, it is only natural to experience the proven design and gameplay style. Like Left 4 Dead games, Back 4 Blood offers a first-person shooter action on different maps filled with zombie hordes. Though the upcoming game also features more than the special zombies that we saw in the other games. In addition to the special infected zombies, there are also massive ogre-like creatures in the game.
Players will also have a wide range of weaponry in their arsenal. And with the addition of Corruption Cards, players will have more alternatives during the gameplay. So the game does not only update the current zombie shooter mechanics but also introduces new features.
