Back 4 Blood may not have set the world on fire the way many would have expected a long-awaited Left 4 Dead spiritual successor to, but it’s carved out a massive audience for itself nonetheless. The co-op zombie shooter has enjoyed impressive success, with publisher WB Games announcing that it has surpassed 10 million players since launching in October- which, of course, also takes into account the fact that the game has also been available via Game Pass since the day of its release. Its player numbers are up from the 6 million figure that was reported shortly after launch.

Meanwhile, it’s also been confirmed that the game’s first expansion, called Tunnels of Terror, will launch on April 12, and it’s promising to bring quite the meaty chunk of new content. For starters, players will be able to play as two new Cleaners– axe-wielding firefighter Sharice and “tough as nails” restauranteur Heng. Three new varieties of Warped Ridden are also being added with the Shredders, the landmine-doting Urchins, and the damage-specialist Rippers.

Another major new addition is a new PvE activity in the form of Ridden Hives. These will task a team of up to four Cleaners with exploring seven different dungeons below Evansburgh, each teeming with the aforementioned Warped Ridden (which will also be available in the PvP Swarm mode). As you’d expect, Ridden Hives will also have exclusive rewards and loot.

Plenty of other additions are also included in the expansion, including eight new character skins, twelve weapon skins, seven new legendary weapons, and new cards. Meanwhile, for those of you who want Back 4 Blood to put up even more of a challenge, a free update launching at the same time will also add the new “No Hope” difficulty option.

Back 4 Blood is available on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
