After a year and a half of missing news from Turtle Rock and Warner Bros on Back 4 Blood – the upcoming zombie cooperative game received its first trailer at The Game Awards 2020. A few days later, Turtle Rock released a half-hour long gameplay trailer.
Here’s everything that you should know about Back 4 Blood:
Release Date: Back 4 Blood Season 4
Turtle Rock and Warner Bros. officially launching Back 4 Blood at The Game Awards 2020, with a release date of June 22, 2021.
As the trailer shows, Back 4 Blood is the latest in everything in the Left 4 Blood franchise apart from its title.
Gameplay: Back 4 Blood Season 4
Back 4 Blood gameplay offers 30 minutes of team-based zombie-killing fun mixed with some developer’s ideas. We looked at different environments, hand-to-hand combat and weapons, player characters and of course zombies.
In the footage you can see a few things Back 4 Blood has nothing to do with Left 4 Dead. In the trailer, you’ll see a new big guy who looks like a tank-mixed with a boomer, and you can also see the new “roguelike” map system in action.
Turtle Rock is pretty straightforward in Back 4 Blood and introduced the Left 4 Dead formula from the start. As the spiritual successor to Left 4 Dead, you’ll still be slashing through the zombie horde in Back 4 Blood, but it also promises to expand it with lots of new features that separate new IPs. Early in development, the community manager wrote in the FAQ: “You can shoot as many zombies as in Left 4 Dead, but there are many new things in Back 4 Blood that make it unique.”
Post Launched Paid Content: Back 4 Blood Season 4
Microtransactions are a big deal for players when starting a new multiplayer game. Because of this, Turtle Rock mentioned the topic in their FAQ and said that post-release content may incur additional fees. However, for now, they are focusing on the main game before considering any type of DLC: “For now, we are focused on making the best, most fun, and the exciting game we can. We’ll start after launching it will understand, but when We’ve paid for post-launch content, like microtransactions, we wanted to do something the community was comfortable with. “
The game will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and Series S, and Microsoft Windows.
