Today, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Turtle Rock Studios have announced Back 4 Blood. It’s made by the same creators and development team that made fan favorite, co-op phenomenon Left 4 Dead. Their new title is made from the ground-up as an original and premium titles which marries the best of what made the co-op zombie shooter so successful.
Here’s a quote from the president of the company about the new zombie shooter:
“We are thrilled to partner with the proven Turtle Rock Studios team on Back 4 Blood to advance the co-op zombie genre forward with innovative multiplayer gameplay,” said David Haddad, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “The talented team at Turtle Rock has been developing amazing games together for a long time, and this is a great opportunity to work with them to create a new gaming universe built specifically with the large co-op zombie shooter community in mind.”
There is no release date for Back 4 Blood yet. The goal for Turtle Rock Studios is to make sure they are making the best game possible before the consider anything else like microtransactions. The platforms for the game will be PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 but don’t count out next generation consoles as well.
Back 4 Blood will include Campaign and PVP. As we get closer to E3 2019 we might hear more about the upcoming new AAA IP.
As many of us wait for Valve to come out with Left 4 Dead 3 this should be a good placeholder in the meantime since it’s coming from the same development team.
