Back 4 Blood Gameplay Revealed: Release Date And Alpha Sign-Ups

Turtle Rock Studios has officially revealed Back 4 Blood, its upcoming co-op zombie shooter that serves as a spiritual successor to Left 4 Dead. First announced in 2019, Back 4 Blood features similar gameplay to Left 4 Dead with some key differences shown in its first gameplay reveal. Its release date is June 22, 2021, and it’s coming to PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC.

During the gameplay demo, we saw players fighting zombies as a team as they aimed down sights and took on gigantic 20-foot tall monsters–both notable differences from Left 4 Dead. It was a brief look, but we got a good sense of the types of weapons players will be able to use against the zombie hordes. These include assault rifles, LMGs, shotguns, axes, and Molotov cocktails, among others.

If you want to try Back 4 Blood for yourself, you’ll be able to soon. An alpha is planned to start on December 17, and you can register for it at Back 4 Blood’s website. On the same day at 10 AM PT, Turtle Rock Studios will livestream a new gameplay showcase. This will be a good chance for you to see more Back 4 Blood gameplay if you’re not accepted into the alpha.
