Back 4 Blood official artwork and logo

[Update]: Back 4 Blood has now landed onto PC and consoles, and so far it's looking pretty solid.

A fair bit of time has gone by since the open beta, so if you're itching to dive back into the Left 4 Dead inspired Back 4 Blood you'll be happy to hear that you won't have to wait all that long. In fact, it's only a matter of days as Back 4 Blood will be launching onto PC, Xbox and PlayStation this October 12, 2021!

The launch version will bring with a whole bunch of maps spread across multiple campaigns, a variety of previously unseen characters and upgrades, as well as some much-needed balance fixes and changes based on beta feedback. Personally, I'm hoping to see some major improvements to the companion AI, because trying to play solo in the beta was an exercise in sheer frustration due to the bots being unable to reliably handle any of the special enemies.

As for what the new maps will be like, as well as the whole storyline tying them together, that you can get a little bit of a sneak peek at through the recently posted campaign trailer. Have a gander:

Once Back 4 Blood goes live I'll make sure to let you know. Until then, you can read a bit more about it over at the official website. Enjoy!
