Back 4 Blood was delayed to October 12th but there’s an open beta coming this Summer (register here to be notified when it goes live). So it’s a good time to get acquainted with the various Cleaners that you’ll be controlling and the different Ridden that you’ll be slaying. Check out both in the trailer below.
There are eight Cleaners to choose from and each has their own unique abilities and traits. Walker gains increased accuracy on precision kills while adding to team health. Karlee can sense hazards and increases the team’s use speed of items. Hoffman adds on to team ammo capacity and can spawn ammo with kills.
Among the Ridden are the Breaker, an infected brute whose hardened fists deal lots of damage; the Ogre, which throws infected “meat balls” from range; the Snitcher who can summon hordes upon spotting you; and the Hag which will grab players and eat them whole. Other Ridden are teased, including one with a large arm that it slams down. Back 4 Blood is slated to release for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5 and PC.
