  • Back 4 Blood is a co-op focused PVE experience from Turtle Rock Games.
  • Back 4 Blood was delayed earlier today to Oct. 12.
  • The game is set to have an open beta later this summer on PC and console.

Earlier on Thursday the upcoming game from Turtle Rock Studios, Back 4 Blood was delayed to Oct. 12. Delays are inevitably going to happen due to the current state of the world. That being said, during the Future Games Show today, we got a brand new look at some extended gameplay from the upcoming game as well as some interesting developer insight.

During the gameplay, we see some classic Left 4 Dead-style FPS action. With four unique characters for you to control, you can slaughter a wide variety of enemies, including a massive unique enemy simply called the Ogre, which is a massive destructive enemy that players will have the option to fight as soon as they see it. Alternatively, they can escape quickly and fight the beast later on within the level.

Back 4 Blood also has a unique card system that allows players to gain extra perks, and be able to coordinate for boosting team dynamics. You can get things like extra medkits, more ammo, and other related boosts. This card system also works in favor of your enemies as they will get different boosts and perks within the level. The developer's cite that they were heavily influenced by roguelike games with the addition of this mechanic.

Back 4 Blood is set to come to Xbox Series X & S, Xbox One, and PC on Oct. 12, and there will be an open beta later this summer for PC and console. We learn more about the open beta in the coming weeks as per Turtle Rock Studios.
