Back 4 Blood is a cooperative multiplayer shooter where a team of 4 survivors tackles waves of infected while working their way through movie-like chapters. Sound familiar? The similarities are not subtle.
However, some serious additions to Left 4 Dead's core gameplay loop really change up how you play in Back 4 Blood. A new card system allows you to mix and match perks on the fly, giving you anything from faster reloads to starting with a knife.
Additionally, survivors don't just have cosmetic differences and voice lines. For example, the Mom character has one instant revive per level. It pushes players to create the most optimized team composition possible to succeed.
Are you tired of taking on the computer? Turn up the difficulty by competing in Back 4 Blood's 4v4 PVP mode. Similar to Left 4 Dead, player characters can take on the role of zombies or survivors. One team attempts to finish the level - the other is trying to stop them.
