New Back 4 Blood Trailers Revealed; Day One Xbox Game Pass Availability Announced

Warner Bros. Games and Turtle Rock Studios today released the Back 4 Blood – Extended E3 Trailer, showing off new gameplay from the upcoming first-person co-op zombie shooter, along with a first look at the game’s competitive PvP (player versus player) “Swarm” mode. The new PvP feature will pit teams against each other as they switch between playing as the Cleaners and the Ridden, offering a unique way to experience the Back 4 Blood world from a new and exciting perspective.

Back 4 Blood is a first-person co-op zombie shooter from the creators of the critically acclaimed Left 4 Dead franchise and features thrilling, dynamic moment-to-moment gameplay and highly variable, customisable action to keep players coming back for more. The Back 4 Blood story takes place after a catastrophic outbreak where most of humanity has either been killed or infected by the parasitic Devil Worm. Hardened by unspeakable events and emboldened to fight for the last of humanity, a group of apocalypse veterans called the Cleaners have rallied to take on the infected horrors known as the Ridden and reclaim the world.

Also announced today during the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase, Back 4 Blood will be coming to Xbox Game Pass at launch on 12th Oct. via Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One, as well as Windows 10 PC. For more information, visit: Xbox.com/Xbox-Game-Pass.

Warner Bros. Games and Turtle Rock Studios today revealed a pair of new Back 4 Blood trailers detailing the game’s competitive PvP (player versus player) “Swarm” mode as well. Revealed today during E3 2021 as part of a discussion with Turtle Rock Studios’ Lead Game Designer, Brandon Yanez, the Back 4 Blood – PvP Gameplay Trailer shows off how this mode compliments the game’s cooperative campaign elements with gut-wrenching action and its own twist on team-based strategy. In Swarm mode, two squads of four will face off against each other in a best-of-three series of rounds as teams swap between playing as the Cleaners and the Ridden. Points are then awarded based on how long the Cleaners can stay alive and endure Ridden attacks, with the team that keeps the clock going the longest as Cleaners winning the match.

Also unveiled today, the new Back 4 Blood – PvP Playable Ridden Trailer provides a closer look at the different playable Ridden available in Swarm mode. While playing from the Ridden perspective, gamers can choose from nine Ridden variants, including the Tallboy, Bruiser, Crusher, Reeker, Exploder, Retch, Stinger, Hocker and Stalker. Each Ridden type has their own unique abilities that can be upgraded with enhancements called mutations, which can be used collectively to aid the team and help turn the tide as the match progresses.

Back 4 Blood will be available for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation® 5, PlayStation® 4, and PC on Oct. 12, 2021. Pre-orders will receive entry into the Early Access portion of the Open Beta from 6th-10th Aug, along with a bonus Fort Hope Elite Weapon Skin Pack.
