Back 4 Blood might look like Left 4 Dead by another name for a reason, and that’s because it comes from Left 4 Dead creators Turtle Rock Studios. That fact on its own makes it a highly anticipated game for fans of those decade-old titles.
Turtule Rock have now confirmed that the game will be out on 22nd June 2021 for PS5, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC. If you’re keen, you can now register for the closed alpha here and start playing on December 17.
Oh, and they also dropped a pair of trailers as well, first showing off a cinematic to introduce the playable characters:
And then to show off some gameplay:
Back 4 Blood was announced back in March 2019, with Turtle Rock very keen to make it clear that this is not Left 4 Dead 3, but rather its own thing, but you might not believe them considering some of the very archetypal zombies shown in the trailers. I guess it’s because the zombies are worm-infested and not some mystery virus?
Anyway, we’re definitely up for some more co-op zombie blasting.
