Even though Warner Bros. Entertainment didn’t have that much to go around for this year’s E3, it did have one title that’s sure to spill some carnage this October – Back 4 Blood.
The spiritual successor to the Left 4 Dead series (developed by the same team at Turtle Rock Studios), Back 4 Blood allows up to four players to jump in and take on their zombie adversaries – and even play as them, in case they get bored. There are various types available, along with upgrades for the soldiers and a whole lot of carnage. And soon, players everywhere will be able to see what’s in store.
The game’s open beta kicks off on August 12th, across the board for players to try on Xbox consoles, PlayStation consoles and PC. If you pre-order the game, however, you’ll have earlier access, running from August 5th through the 9th. Otherwise, the beta lasts through the 16th.
Those that have Xbox Game Pass will be able to enjoy the game on day one, starting on October 12th. Otherwise, you’ll have to pay for it on other platforms. Oh, and contend with the fact it releases the same day as Evil Dead: The Game. Hope you like killing zombies.
The latest trailer is posted below. We’ll see you in zombie-land.
