Turtle Rock Studios announce new co-op Zombie shooter Back 4 Blood

Posted on March 15, 2019

Zombies are rising once again, but don’t get caught out and mistakenly left for dead because you might get eaten alive! Turtle Rock Studios (the developers behind the popular Left 4 Dead franchise and Evolve) together with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment have announced a new zombie infestation for us to fight called Back 4 Blood!

Back 4 Blood is designed as a new and original premium title. It will feature the best of what has made the co-op zombie shooter genre a success combined with state of the art technology. Whilst all of this sounds pretty tasty to those of us who don’t have brains on the brain, I can’t help but think it sounds a lot like a spiritual successor to Left 4 Dead. Turtle Rock have however stressed that this isn’t a poorly disguised Left 4 Dead 3, a title many of us may actually die waiting for.

Back 4 Blood, a spiritual successor to Left 4 Dead?

In regards to their new game, Turtle Rock Studio have said that “It’s hard to overstate what an awesome opportunity this is. We get to return to a genre that was born in our studio with over ten years of additional experience and zombie ideas racked up in our brains,” said Chris Ashton, Co-founder and Design Director, Turtle Rock Studios. “We also have some of the best teammates in the business at WBIE who understand our development process and are equally committed to our player-first mentality. We love being able to announce, so we can start working with the community right away.”

Back 4 Blood doesn’t yet have a scheduled release date however it’s currently planned to release on PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One.
