Back 4 Blood Will Not Have A Versus Campaign Or Equivalent

The highly popular mode from the game's spiritual predecessor, Left 4 Dead, is not planned according to a dev on the official Discord.

Back 4 Blood will launch later this year, and is in the midst of a beta, which you can read more about through here. Various impressions have come out, and people are getting a good feel for the game, one way or another. As most people probably know, the game itself was developed and is being billed as a spiritual follow-up to Left 4 Dead, but it seems it will lack a fan favorite mode.

As detail by Reddit user RadiumPwd, they went to the game’s official Discord to ask if the game would get a Versus Campaign or something similar. While that question went unanswered for a bit, the game’s Design Director, Chris Ashton, answered that there were no plans in place for Back 4 Blood‘s own version of Versus Campaign and elaborated to say, “We have a lot of defensive equipment and our specials are good at ambushing. Defending worked far better for our game than running from A-B.”

It probably isn’t too surprising since nothing had been said about that mode to this point, but Left 4 Dead fans will no doubt be disappointed. The mode in those games saw two team, one as the survivors and one as special Infected, battle over 3 rounds. It was a largely popular mode, so hopefully at least something similar down the road.

Back 4 Blood is set to release October 12th for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and PC. The game will also come to Xbox Game Pass day 1 of release.
