Back 4 Blood Announced

Zombie shooter games are always popular among video game lovers worldwide but only a very few have actually succeeded in matching the legacy of Left 4 Dead developer Turtle Rock Studios and publisher Valve Corporation.

A sequel, Left 4 Dead 2 came following and a decade has passed in anticipation for release of a third installment with no hope or whatsoever, until now as original L4D dev studio is back with a spiritual successor titled Back 4 Blood.

Turtle Rock is currently developing a co-operative shooter game where players fend off hordes of zombies for their own survival, which sounds a lot like what Left 4 Dead offered but they insist that it really is an original and unique IP.

Despite taking inspiration from L4D co-op zombie shooter series, developers insist that the game is not Left 4 Dead 3 at all. They will introduce new features to honor the legacy of preceding titles but being very coy about them.

A job listing for hiring animator, character concept artist and level designers with expertise of working on competitive FPS posted by the studio for a globally known franchise in June 2018 had many to believe that Left 4 Dead 3 was in works.

Back 4 Blood is said to have a campaign mode with options for player-versus-player combat. However, developers are not planning on to push a Battle Royale mode for the game when it will launch on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Turtle Rock is working in collaboration with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment for their latest project with a committed to a player-first mentality and everything they learned over years will help them move forward with new ideas.

Back 4 Blood would be a great opportunity for old-school fans of Left 4 Dead to jump back to a genre they loved so much and new generation of players would be able to experience the thrill of taking on undead hordes with squad mates.
