The Back 4 Blood Roadmap has been revealed and it has tons of tantalizing new content for fans of zombie shooters on PC and consoles -- including the addition of a solo offline mode and the option to get three expansions with its Annual Pass.
Back 4 Blood was first officially revealed more than two years ago. Since then, it became one of the many co-op shooters shown at E3 2021 and launched its open beta in late Summer 2021. Now, Turtle Rock Studios has shared details on what players can expect to arrive over the next year.
