Back 4 Blood is a first-person co-op zombie shooter from the creators of the Left 4 Dead franchise and 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. The game features both a co-op story campaign where you and three other players work together to survive and a competitive multiplayer where you play with friends in PvP and take turns playing as a Cleaner and the Ridden.
Back 4 Blood will release on Oct. 12, 2021, for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC. Pre-orders will gain entry into the Early Access portion of the Open Beta from Aug. 5-9, along with a bonus Fort Hope Elite Weapon Skin Pack.
