Turtle Rock Studios has a new update available for Back 4 Blood players. It brings the Full Deck Draw feature to all difficulties, allowing players to play all 15 cards when beginning the campaign. The developer is also considering options like Ordered Draw and Full Random Decks in the future though there may need to be some difficulty rebalancing done.
Another new feature with this update is Player Kicking. If a player is idle for too long or shoots their teammates too much, then the system will kick them. It’s not currently final but will be monitored closely in its current state. Other new content in this update includes new banners, sprays and emblems.
Twelve new Burn Cards, Warped Chest Corruption Cards, Cleaner skins, and Legendary Accessories have also been added. Check out some of the patch notes below with full notes here. Back 4 Blood is currently available for Xbox One, PS4, PS5, PC and Xbox Series X/S. Stay tuned for more details on further updates and its second paid expansion.
JUNE 2022 UPDATE
Full Deck Draw
- Play all 15 cards from your deck at the start of a Campaign for all difficulties.
Developer Note: We felt like the 15 card draw in No Hope went over well with the community, and wanted to roll out this option to all difficulties. In the future we are considering adding multiple deck styles like ordered draw and full random decks. Some difficulties have been rebalanced to work better with this feature.
- The new Player Kicking system identifies and allows kicking from a Mission when a Cleaner is idle for too long or deals too much friendly fire damage.
Developer Note: We discussed this feature at length to try and do what’s best for the community, so we want to try this conditional kick feature that will only trigger if someone is playing outside the bounds of the game. We also feel that the traditional Vote to Kick can be exploitable and toxic. This feature is not final and we will be monitoring it closely.
- New banners, sprays, and emblems
- 12 New Burn Cards
- New Warped Chest Corruption Cards
- New Cleaner skins
- Legendary Accessories
- A more detailed breakdown of Supply Points, Copper, and Skull Totems is now present on the post-round screen.
