The game’s not going anywhere, though. Turtle Rock Studios has announced it will no longer create extra content for Back for Blood as it is switching its focus to a new project. Speaking in a notice on the official website, the studio more or less stated the three expansions – Tunnels of Terror, Children of the Worm, and River of Blood – are the only DLC to expect for the game. Back 4 Blood – River of Blood: third expansion features 5 new chapters, a new cleaner, weapons, skins, cards, a new Ridden foe, and more. The notice reads that…

Back 4 Blood devs seem to tease some cult shenanigans in second expansion

A release date hasn’t been set for the next expansion as of yet. The next Back 4 Blood expansion still doesn’t have a release date, but developer Turtle Rock has at least offered a small tease of it. Earlier this week (July 15), the official Back 4 Blood Twitter put out a tweet saying that while it would “love to confirm the release date” for the game’s second expansion, the team needs “a bit more time.” According to Turtle Rock, “it’s an exciting update and we’re so pumped, it’s been like a cult around these parts.” That mention of a…

Best of 2021: Returnal, and Sherif’s other GOTY picks

Sherif explains why these games were his favourite in 2021. 2021 obviously wasn’t a particularly great year for games. Usually, by the time we get to writing these, I have a few games vying for my own three spots of best of the year. This year, however, I pretty much knew what all three will be well before December. In a way, this is good; for something to make such a strong impression that you can’t imagine it being bumped by anything else. On the other hand, though, I would have loved to have that internal struggle, it’s a holiday…

Back 4 Blood devs planning to dial difficulty back down

“Sometimes a bit of difficulty can add a lot of replayability, but as of right now there are issues and bugs we’ve encountered in development that are making it far more difficult than intended,” Back 4 Blood developers Turtle Rock Studios have said. The Left 4 Dead-style monster-mashing has become notably more difficult following the big November update, with undesireable consequences, and they laid out plans to remedy it. Read more

The problem with coming Back 4 Blood is that soon you’ll want more blood, and more blood.

Before paid expansions start rolling in 2022, this year we should expect to see new free stuff including a solo offline mode with progression, a new card type, new cards, and more. Read more

Back 4 Blood players a bit miffed over lack of single-player progression, but changes may be coming

Back 4 Blood devs are looking into ways to address the issue. Turtle Rock is discussing how to address the lack of progression in Back 4 Blood’s solo mode. As noted on reddit, players who have early access to the game have noticed that when playing in single-player with bots, there isn’t a way to receive rewards unless playing online with at least one other player. In other words, solo mode players won’t earn supply points, which can be spent on cards, which is a main feature of the game. Instead, solo players have to use solo decks which are…
