Back 4 Blood Campaign Trailer Premieres Gruesome Story Details
We all got a taste of the badass, bloody action Turtle Rock Studios is giving fans with Back 4 Blood during the beta we all got to enjoy recently, but now we have a trailer that focuses on the gruesome story details behind all the blood soaked carnage that we will see when the game launches on October 12th, 2021.
The video doesn’t give away a ton of plot details but it does introduce players to “Mom”, the foul-mouthed leader of the eight Cleaners they’ll control. She may getting on in years but she’s clearly no pushover, and that’s good. She’s got to wrangle a group of disparate personalities from different backgrounds all united under one goal: take back a world overrun by monsters. The video also touches on the emergence and subsequent spread of the Devil Worm, the mysterious parasite responsible for transforming most of the population into mindless, flesh-eating zombies.
The minds over at Turtle Rock Studios are made up of former Left 4 Dead developers which is why as you have noticed Back 4 Blood serves as a spiritual successor to the L4D series. The game features 4 player co-op as you work together to take down hordes of infected with special infected thrown in the mix to try and take you down as you work your way from one safe room to the next with a few obstacles and objectives along the way. B4B will also feature a competitive mode that is called Swarm that will put you up against other players as the teams play as humans and zombies trying to stop each other, much like the competitive mode of the L4D franchise.
Back 4 Blood is coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It’s also coming to Xbox Game Pass on day one.
