The zombie squad-based shooters might be making a comeback soon, as we have the reveal for Back 4 Blood fresh out of The Game Awards and possibly on your system very soon. For those wondering, this is the next title to be coming out of Turtle Rock Studios that you might remember brought us Evolve…or more on topic, Left 4 Dead. Something that looks to have heavily inspired Back 4 Blood from the looks of it. We will know for certain on June 22nd when it is set to hit the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC. Although, some of us may not need to wait that long to see more than just the trailers we have to offer up.
Given the form of game Back 4 Blood is, it makes sense that there will be alpha and beta tests for gamers to help the team shape the game. This is the case and there is going to be an alpha test as soon as December 17th for those looking to dive on in. From the looks of the gameplay, it will have all of those classic and fun features of the L4D universe, but also add in some extra little twists. Like more characters and new monsters that can tower over 20 feet tall in-game. Much larger than any of the Bloaters we might remember from before. All in a fast-paced shooter that we can also kind of experience just below. Have a look at the reveal for Back 4 Blood, then the gameplay, and then head over to see if you can be lucky enough to get in on the alpha taking place next week. Such fun news to have.
