We had the opportunity to test Back 4 Blood during a beta in early August, and we can finally tell you something. Back 4 Blood is indeed the worthy heir of Left 4 Dead 2. This is a more "modern" version of our favorite shooter, which means bigger, nastier, more numerous monsters and a fun experience, with the necessary level of complexity as the difficulty increases. Add to that a card system that adds rogue-like progression and you'll have a lively and fun game (especially for several) with near-infinite replayability. In short, if you enjoyed the Left 4 Dead, no reason not to throw yourself headlong into the hordes of zombies of Back 4 Blood.What we know about the gameplay of Back 4 Blood
The gameplay of Back 4 Blood is very much inspired by the Left 4 Dead series. This is a first-person shooter, set in an apocalyptic world teeming with zombies where a team of four players must get from point A to point B by completing various objectives. Between the players and their salvation patrol hordes of normal infected and special infected, who will have to fight at all costs to stay alive, while managing his stock of ammunition and healing. So far nothing new, except that Back 4 Blood intends to take the genre to another level, thanks to revisited gameplay mechanics, including a map system in particular. At the beginning of each game, players form a deck that includes certain cards that change certain characteristics of the character (his life, stamina, damage) while the AI itself chooses certain cards that will greatly hinder their progress, adding malus that can range from simple fog to increasing the size of the undead hordes. In addition, the game benefits from graphics and animations of the latest generation that reinforce the immersion in a rather sinister world.A cross-platform game
Back 4 Blood will integrate the cross-platform as soon as it is released. PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series and PC players can all find themselves in games that can host up to 4 players in cooperation. But there are also multiplayer games, where other online players can play as zombies and bosses, in order to prevent survivors from reaching their destination. So many modes as fun as terrifying that we will find in the game as soon as it is released.Pre-Order Back 4 Blood
As you understand, pre-order Back 4 Blood offers you the opportunity to enter the first phase of its beta, so if you want to jump into the water, go with your eyes closed.

The standard version that includes the base game, the special version that comes in a physical copy with a metal case, the deluxe version that includes early access to the game, and upcoming downloadable content, and finally the ultimate version that includes the bonuses of the deluxe version and additional cosmetics.
