Back 4 Blood's Children of the Worm expansion artwork for the new character "Prophet" Dan

[Update]: Back 4 Blood's Children of the Worm expansion has now added a new story chapter, enemies and more.

If you're tired of playing through the same old maps and you're itching for something new and exciting to sink your teeth into, you'll be happy to hear that Back 4 Blood will soon be getting a big DLC - Children of the Worm. The star attraction is a brand new chapter of the story campaign which will bring with it new regions to explore, new threats to overcome, and most importantly, new toys to play around with!

The exact details are still few and far between, but so far it looks like the new enemies are going to be cultists that are capable of wielding weapons and probably using strategies more advanced than "charge at the players". In order to contend with these foes you'll have access to a bunch of new weapons, accessories and cards, including things like the makeshift Lockjaw rifle or the always-terrifying bear trap.

You can also expect to see the incredibly smug-looking "Prophet" Dan join the Cleaner crew alongside an assortment of new cosmetics. There will be eight exclusive character skins up for grabs, as well as twelve fancy weapon skins.

I'd love to tell you more, but I'm afraid that's pretty much it for the time being. That said, the Children of the Worm expansion is set to launch this August 30th, so a proper preview is most likely coming to us at some point this week.

You can keep an eye on things, as well as learn a little bit more about Back 4 Blood, over at Steam. Enjoy!
