Finally, we get a proper Left 4 Dead sequel. The game that sort of started the whole “horde” mode thing is back. Turtle Rock Studios and Warner Games is back as well with Back 4 Blood. Best of all, we don’t have to wait long cause this one is coming out soonish. On June 22, 2021 to be exact.
The synopsis breaks down like this:
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,” Chris Ashton, Co-founder and Design Director, Turtle Rock Studios said about Back 4 Blood. “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 is scheduled for a worldwide release on June 22, 2021 for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation®5, PlayStation4 and PC.
