Back 4 Blood was announced during The Game Awards 2020.

Coming to last-gen and new-gen consoles and PC, Back 4 Blood is in development from the team who brought you Left 4 Dead,  Turtle Rock Studios.

The cooperative first-person shooter pits you against the Ridden, the once-human hosts of a deadly parasite. Humanity’s extinction is on the line, so it’s up to you and your friends to eradicate the Ridden.

  • Cooperative Story Campaign – Fight your way through a dynamic, perilous world in a four-player co-op story campaign where you must work together to survive increasingly challenging missions. Play with up to 3 of your friends online or go solo and lead your team in battle.
  • Competitive Multiplayer – Play with or against friends in PVP. Become a Cleaner, one of the immune survivors, with special perks or switch sides and play as the horrific Ridden. Both sides come with unique weapons, abilities, and specialties.
  • Extreme Replayability – A new “roguelike” card system creates different experiences each and every time, putting you in control to craft custom decks, roll different builds and undertake more demanding fights. The Game Director is constantly adjusting to player actions, ensuring exciting fights, extreme gameplay diversity, and tougher legions of Ridden – including mutated boss types up to 20 feet tall.
