Turtle Rock's spiritual successor to its Left 4 Dead series is almost upon us. Here's everything that you need to know about it.
A new trailer for the upcoming co-op first person shooter focuses on its campaign, showing various enemies, firefights, and more.
Turtle Rock Studios also acknowledges under-performing bot AI in the beta and notes that they'll be smarter on launch day.
The co-op zombie shooter is on track to release October 12th for previous and current gen platforms. Its open beta returns today for all players.
The co-op first person shooter's beta went live last Friday, and amassed a great number of players on Steam over the weekend.
"We wanted players to be able to change their playstyle and their world themselves, and not just having the Game Director randomise their loot or the AI," says lead game designer Brandon Yanez.
The highly popular mode from the game's spiritual predecessor, Left 4 Dead, is not planned according to a dev on the official Discord.
"We need a player pool, so that we've got matches going all the time. I think we've got that player pool from day one," says executive producer Matt O'Driscoll.
A tech analysis finds that there's very little to separate the Back 4 Blood beta's PS5 and Xbox Series X versions, with the Xbox Series S version running at 1296p.
The beta will feature two maps each from the campaign and PvP, several playable Swarmers and Cleaners, and much more.
Back 4 Blood's PC trailer touts 4K visuals, uncapped frame rates, support for Nvidia DLSS, ultrawide support, and much more.
As long as the party leader owns a paid content drop in PvE, it will be playable for everyone else. PvP cards will also be available to all players.

The co-op zombie shooter will see a day 1 launch on Game Pass, while a new trailer also provides a glimpse of the game's PvP mode.
The description of a recently released video – which has since been set to private – may have spilled the beans on the co-op shooter's day 1 Game Pass launch.
Pre-orders can gain early access to the upcoming beta. A brief new trailer has also been released, which sees the Cleaners battling the Ridden.
The Summer Game Fest Twitter clarifies that there is no separate event for the publisher and that only Back 4 Blood's PvP mode will be showcased.
The co-op zombie shooter is due out this October, while an open beta is also currently planned for the Summer, which an exact date for that currently unknown.
