The spiritual successor to Valve's Left 4 Dead series, Back 4 Blood follows the same, zombified formula, where you and three other players must survive against a horde of infected as you race to a series of safehouses. 

A new feature in Back 4 Blood is the use of cards to build your character. At the start of each level, players need to build a deck with cards that adjust various elements of gameplay, such as modifying the player's health, damage, and stamina, to give them an edge against the AI. The AI director also has some cards to play with too, called Corruption cards, which can be used against the player to hinder their progress. The AI director can spawn extra enemies, activate a fog effect, and increase the size of the horde, all to put a stop to the survivors. 

Back 4 Blood will feature a 4 player co-op mode and 8 player PvP. It will release for the PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series S and X, and the PlayStation 5.

Cooperative Campaign

Fight your way through a dynamic, perilous world in a 4-player co-op story campaign where you must work together to survive increasingly challenging missions. Play with up to 3 of your friends online or go solo and lead your team in battle.

Choose from 8 customizable Cleaners, one of the immune survivors, and a range of lethal weapons and items. Strategize against an ever-evolving enemy bent on your total destruction.

Competitive Multiplayer

Play with or against friends in PVP. Switch between playing as a Cleaner with special perks and the horrific Ridden. Both sides come with unique weapons, abilities, and specialties.

Extreme Replayability

A new "rogue-lite" Card System creates different experiences each and every time, putting you in control to craft custom decks, roll different builds and undertake more demanding fights.

The Game Director is constantly adjusting to player actions, ensuring exciting fights, extreme gameplay diversity, and tougher legions of Ridden - including mutated boss types up to 20 feet tall.
