The Back 4 Blood story takes place after a catastrophic outbreak where most of humanity has either been killed or infected. Hardened by the unspeakable events and emboldened to fight for humanity, a group of veterans of the apocalypse called the Cleaners have rallied together to take on the parasite infected horrors known as the Ridden to take back what is left in the world.

The player is at the center of a war against the Ridden. These once-human hosts of a deadly parasite have turned into terrifying creatures bent on devouring what remains of civilization. With humanity’s extinction on the line, it’s up to you and your friends to take the fight to the enemy, eradicate the Ridden, and reclaim the world.

While designed as a 4-player coop it can be played single player. The game however is definitely ideal for online coop. Back 4 Blood feature dramatically better graphic at the expense of being more demanding on graphics hardware.

The game offers a wide range of weapons for players to indulge in. The range of guns in the game is very extensive and it looks like the developer grabbed the whole arsenal.

For those who have played the popular Left 4 Dead 2, Back 4 Blood will show some slight similarity. The campaigns are broken up into several smaller maps and players find their way to a safe room. Unlike Left 4 Dead 2, Back 4 Blood does not have weapons in the safe room in favor of finding weapons in the game world. Back 4 Blood also has several campaigns that are unlocked as players complete them in sequential order. Most likely DLC will bring additional campaigns to the game in the future.

There are 4 campaigns or acts and each is made up of several maps to make up the game. The design shows that modern games would be more expansive with more RAM installed to handle all of the game assets.

The game world is thoroughly modern with a lot of detail. The zombies are also richly detailed with excellent animation. This game is far from a L4D3, it’s a whole new game design that departs from original games in so many ways. The images should make this abundantly clear.
