Game Ready For Back 4 Blood, Enhanced With NVIDIA DLSS

Back 4 Blood is out now! You and your team of three Cleaners 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.

If you’re heading into the war against the Ridden, be sure to download our new Game Ready driver, which offers optimizations and enhancements for your PC or laptop, and support for NVIDIA DLSS. Using DLSS, performance is boosted by up to 46%, allowing virtually every GeForce RTX gamer to max out Back 4 Blood’s graphics at 4K at over 60 FPS:
