Publisher Warner Bros. Games has finally shared some concrete details about Back 4 Blood, the Evolve crew's new zombie shooter that can be played online with a squad of 4 players or solo with up to 3 AI teammates.
For those unfamiliar with Back 4 Blood, it's a spiritual successor to the long-forgotten Left 4 Dead franchise.
Fans of more combative experiences with enemies controlled by human beings should be glad to hear that the undead extravaganza will also support up to 8 players in online PvP (person versus person) multiplayer.
According to Warner Bros. Games, the game "takes place after a catastrophic outbreak where most of humanity has either been killed or infected by the parasitic Devil Worm. Hardened by unspeakable events and emboldened to fight for the last of humanity, a group of apocalypse veterans called the Cleaners have rallied to take on the infected horrors known as the Ridden and reclaim the world."
Back 4 Blood will be arriving on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, and PC (via both Steam and the Epic Games Store) on June 22. A closed PC alpha test will begin this Thursday (Dec. 17) and come to an end on Monday (Dec. 21). To get your chance to join the fun, register now on the title's official website.
Interestingly enough, the highly anticipated first-person shooter is being developed by Turtle Rock Studios, the fan-favourite team behind the aforementioned series (formerly operating under the Valve South name).
