Back 4 Blood’s PvP Versus mode has too many hiding places for humans

I had a grand old time blasting through the open beta of Back 4 Blood‘s campaign mode earlier this week, and I’m pretty sure everyone from Left 4 Dead diehards to complete newbies like myself will have an equally fun romp with it when the open beta starts for real on August 12th. What I’m less confident about, though, is whether people will be saying the same thing about the game’s PvP Versus mode, which will also be available to try in the open beta when it comes out next week. Due to some technical difficulties during our hands-on preview…

Back 4 Blood: release date, pre-orders, crossplay, gameplay, and more

Back 4 Blood isn’t a part of the Left 4 Dead series, though it might seem like it. Two zombie-based 4v4 multiplayer games with Turtle Rock-style gunslinging action?

Left 4 Dead spiritual sequel Back 4 Blood delayed

Alas, we’ll have to wait an extra four months for the new cooperative zombie-smashing shooter from Left 4 Dead creators Turtle Rock Studios. They announced today that Back 4 Blood‘s release is delayed from the June 22nd to October 12th. Making something huge and complicated is tricky during a global pandemic, y’know. But on the bright side, we will get to play some part of Back 4 Blood this summer in an open beta test. Read more

Left 4 Dead-alike Back 4 Blood shambles into closed alpha

I’m sure we all have our fond memories of playing through Left 4 Dead and its brilliant sequel. But fun as they are, there’s no hiding the pair are getting on a bit, and it’s time enough something stepped in to carry on that co-op carnage*.
