Publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and developer Turtle Rock Studios have released Back 4 Blood for the Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store, and Xbox Game Pass.

View the launch trailer below:

Here is an overview of the game:

Back 4 Blood is a thrilling cooperative first-person shooter from the creators of the critically acclaimed Left 4 Dead franchise. You 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.

Cooperative Campaign

Fight your way through a dynamic, perilous world in a 4-player co-op story campaign where you must work together to survive increasingly challenging missions. Play with up to 3 of your friends online or go solo and lead your team in battle.

Choose from 8 customizable Cleaners, one of the immune survivors, and a range of lethal weapons and items. Strategise against an ever-evolving enemy bent on your total destruction.

Competitive Multiplayer

Play with or against friends in PVP. Switch between playing as a Cleaner with special perks and the horrific Ridden. Both sides come with unique weapons, abilities, and specialties.

Extreme Replayability

A new "rogue-lite" Card System creates different experiences each and every time, putting you in control to craft custom decks, roll different builds and undertake more demanding fights.

The Game Director is constantly adjusting to player actions, ensuring exciting fights, extreme gameplay diversity, and tougher legions of Ridden - including mutated boss types up to 20 feet tall.

I've been enjoying it for about a week now. It does need some tweaks, it does need some refinement, but it's got a very solid base and is one of the only games I'm willing to give a pass on (in that, it's not GREAT at launch but likely will be in 6 months or so). Normally I'm pretty critical of games that launch poorly, but this right now is a solid 7/10 game that I think will be a 9/10 game when the DLC comes out and the game is balanced better.

so yeah, good now, has the potential to be great but it's not there yet.

Here's hoping it's a worthy successor to Left 4 Dead.

Yeah, i'll give it a try.

I wouldn't say it's there yet, but it's got a very solid base to work from and improve upon.

73/100 on Metacritic, this won't help Game Pass' reputation

  • -4

73 is a bad score? Lol You realize this is reflected for all versions not just Game Pass, but keep it up the pettiness.

  • +2

Of course 73 is a bad score, don't try to reinvent the wheel.
And I didn't say "the game pass version is 73" (which wouldn't make any sense) but rather a day one game pass game that is poorly rated (as the Ascent and the Medium)

  • -5

Well fortunately for you the majority of game titles on Game Pass are rated 75 or higher on Metacritic scale.
