Warner Bros. Games and Turtle Rock Studios have revealed new trailers and game modes for Back 4 Blood. On the occasion of the talk with the lead designer of the development studio, Brandon Yanez, at E3 2021, we got an in-depth look at the Player versus Player (PvP) mode, which mixes the cooperative elements of the campaign with elements of action and team strategy.
One of the most prominent is the new mode Cloud, where two teams of four will meet in heats of three rounds and they will be exchanging sides of the exterminators to that of the infected. Who wins? The one who is the best in the two rounds. Such rounds will award points based on how long Terminators can survive when attacked by the Infected. The team that stays the longest playing the exterminator wins the game.
Back 4 Blood will have nine variants of infected
On the other hand, Turtle Rock Studios has shown the different characters infected that we can choose in the Cloud mode of Back 4 Blood. When we take the perspective of infected we can choose a total of nine variants: big man, bully, explosive, vomit, stabbing, spitting and stalking. Each family of infected will have its own branch of skills, which we can improve and enhance, which will be called mutations.
What does not change is the first-person action and the frenzy that it will offer in all game modes. The creators of Left 4 Dead aim to establish itself as one of the preferred multiplayer options for the community once it launches this October. It is the only game presented by Warner Bros. Games during this E3 2021.
Back 4 Blood It will be available from its opening day on Xbox Game Pass, Microsoft’s subscription service. The title will go on sale this October 12 ° en PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S y PC.
