Warner Bros. and Turtle Rock Studios Announce Back 4 Blood, a New Co-op Zombie First-Person Shooter

back 4 blood

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Turtle Rock Studios have announced that they are working on a new game called Back 4 Blood.

Back 4 Blood is a brand new co-op zombie first-person shooter with new features and state-of-the-art technology. The game is planned to release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

For those who don’t know Turtle Rock Studios is the same team that made Evolve but more importantly Left 4 Dead. Back 4 Blood seems like it may finally be a spiritual successor to that franchise that we all have been waiting for. I mean even the name is similar to Left 4 Dead.

You can read more about Back 4 Blood in the FAQ the developer provided below.

What is Back 4 Blood?

Back 4 Blood is a co-op zombie first-person shooter with new features we aren’t ready to talk about just yet, but keep your eyes peeled for all news on our official Discord.

How are you planning to succeed against recent and upcoming AAA zombie and co-op shooters?

We are going back to our roots and at the same time innovating on them. We know we have some big shoes to fill, but we’re going all out to surpass everything we’ve done before

What’s the story / lore surrounding this game?

We will release more information on that as time goes on. Right now we are just excited to tell our community what we have been working on!

What platforms will Back 4 Blood be on?

We are currently focusing on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. More possibilities aren’t out of the question though.

What happened to your other game / partnership?

We can’t get into details but both parties decided to move on.

How much is it going to cost?

We haven’t locked down a price point yet, but the game will be a premium, AAA title.

Will this game have microtransactions?

Right now, we’re focusing on making the best, most fun and exciting game we can. We’ll figure out the post-launch stuff later, but if we do have paid post-launch content, like microtransactions, we want to do something that the community feels good about.

Is this Left 4 Dead 3?!

No. Back 4 Blood is our own brand new, original IP. You’ll be able to shoot up a lot of zombies like in Left 4 Dead, but there’s a whole lot of new stuff in Back 4 Blood which makes it unique.

When is the release date?

We don’t have a date yet. Keep an eye on our official Discord channel for all news.

Is this game going to be a battle royale game?

No.

Will there be PVP?

Yes!

Will there be a campaign?

Yes!

Where is Evolve 2? How dare you!

2K owns the rights to Evolve and our contract to work on the game expired back in 2016. Please contact 2K for all Evolve related questions.

Will there be founders packs or pre-order deals?

It’s still early in development and our number one goal is to make a great, complete, fun game so we are focusing on that.

When will the community get to play?

We don’t have a date yet. Keep an eye on our official Discord channel for all news.

With so little to tell us, why are you announcing now?

Back 4 Blood is a hugely ambitious project and we need the best of the best to come join us. As an independent studio, we have to announce early to let our industry know we’re up to something big. If you are in the video game business and you are looking to make real contributions to a brand new AAA IP developed in Southern California, check us out. Our job listings are here with more to come in the next year.

We also want to hear from you all about what you think about the games we’ve made in the past and what you are looking forward to in the future. We love getting to know and interact with our community and the sooner we can do that, the better!
