Back 4 Bood, a new zombie-slaying co-op title from Turtle Rock Studios, has resurfaced after a long period of silence from the developers.
As the cheeky number in the title suggests, this is somewhat of a spiritual successor to co-op title Left 4 Dead and its sequel and comes from the developers of those titles, Turtle Rock Studios.
Originally revealed in 2019, the announcement post described the game as "designed from the ground-up as an original, premium title and marries the best of what made the co-op zombie shooter so successful with new features and state-of-the-art technology."
Warner Bros Interactive are publishing the game and below you'll find everything we know about the game.
Turtle Rock Studios have announced that they're delaying the release of Back 4 Blood. A statement posted to Twitter reads:
"Turtle Rock Studios is working hard to make Back 4 Blood the best game it can possibly be at launch and the team needs more time to do this. Therefore, we will release Back 4 Blood on October 12, 2021. We thank our community for its continued support and are excited to share that there will be an open beta this summer."
The game was originally set to release on June 22nd, 2021, but was subsequently delayed until October 12, 2021.
The game is slated to launch on PS5, Xbox Series S/X, PS4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store.
As you'd imagine, the game comes in a variety of editions.
There's the Standard Edition that just comes with the game, a pre-order bonus that includes weapon skins, a digital-only deluxe edition AND an Ultimate Edition.
We've broken down what comes in each here.
