Back 4 Blood Available October 12 With NVIDIA DLSS

Back 4 Blood is a cooperative first-person shooter from the creators of the critically acclaimed Left 4 Dead. You and your team of three ‘Cleaner’ friends are at the center of a war against the Ridden. These once-human hosts of a deadly parasite have turned into terrifying creatures bent on devouring what remains of civilization. With humanity's extinction on the line, it's up to you and your friends to take the fight to the enemy, eradicate the Ridden, and reclaim the world in a series of co-op campaign levels featuring randomized elements, a unique loadout system, and 8 different characters with their own perks and stats.

Team-up online with drop-in and drop-out four-player co-op to fight the ever-evolving Ridden threat together, or play the campaign solo with three A.I. teammates. Alternatively, gamers can also become a Cleaner or switch sides and play as the Ridden with friends in the online PvP Swarm mode, which supports up to eight players.


Ahead of the game’s release, you can participate in the Back 4 Blood Open Beta. Beginning August 5th, those who pre-order will be guaranteed Early Access to the Open Beta, which concludes August 9th, and a limited number of people who register on the Back 4 Blood website will also be invited to participate.
