Back 4 Blood, the inheritor of Left 4 Dead
The creators of Left 4 Dead announced their new work in 2019. After all the movement Evolve brought with it, the company was not disengaging from first-person cooperative action. Back 4 Blood brings together “the best of what made cooperative zombie shooter so successful with new features and next-generation technology.”
After a year of silence, his first gameplay trailer appeared during the The Games Awards 2020 gala, which you can see at the top of this news. In it we saw the formula that we all know. A haven as a starting point, multitudes of zombies in waves and great volleys of lead. As is usual in these types of projects, normal enemies are joined by a handful of special archetypes that can be approached in different ways.
A small part of the community was fortunate enough to try an advance in the form of Closed Alpha, held last December. The requirements they were targeting are not final on PC; as development continues it will be optimized for less powerful equipment.
