The Left 4 Dead-inspired co-op first person shooter is due out for PlayStation, Xbox, and PC in less than two weeks.
PlayStation Plus subscribers can net the multiplayer-centric titles and sandbox stealth game from September 7th to October 4th.
Journalist Jeff Grubb says that based on what he's heard, NetherRealm's next game will be another Mortal Kombat, not Injustice 3 or a Marvel vs DC game.
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 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.
Total sales for the franchise in its 30 year long history crosses 73 million units. Mortal Kombat Mobile has also had over 138 million downloads.
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 4v4 mode, Swarm, will see a team of Cleaner playing against a team of Ridden. New gameplay footage and details have been unveiled.
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.
Each Cleaner has their own unique traits and abilities to help the team.
The digital-only event will feature Microsoft, Ubisoft, Nintendo and more participating.
