Back 4 Blood (spiritual successor to Left 4 Dead) -- Consoles/PC 10/12/2021

A co-op zombie shooter from the Left 4 Dead and Evolve creators. Not much information now, but I'm sure will make a splash at E3 in a few months.

I went to college with one of the founders. Good to see them bouncing back from Evolve.

Left 4 Dead / Left 4 Dead 2 are two of my favorite games of all-time. Evolve on the other hand is my worst blind buy since State Of Emergency. Hopefully this one works out.

My friends and I played an obscene amount of L4D1. We played a decent amount of part 2, but it didn't hit the same chords with us as the first one did. I hope this tracks closer to the first one.

The L4D games to this day were and are in my Top 5 co-op best overall fun experiences I had...along with a barrel full of laughs. The characters were fun...the insane stuff you got to use was fun...the pace was just right...they were just plain good old fashion fun. Since no word or much of anything on this...for the time being might look at the World War Z game coming shortly to tie you over for some good Zombie Killing..or go and play Killing Floor 2. Glad to see them coming out with something...

Yep, L4D is one of the greatest games ever made. Ridiculously fun co-op even with randoms. I hope this game can recapture that magic.

How did I not know there was a Left 4 Dead sequel (kinda) in the pipeline??

Hell yeah. My favorite 360 gen series. This looks great. Hopefully I can find a Series X by June.

I'm actually surprised there haven't been more L4D clones over the years given how popular the first two games were. And this one basically looks like L4D3, plus it's from the original devs...I wonder if Valve is considering legal action?

Yeah there's also a game play trailer and it's legitimately like a full on sequel. The safe rooms are the same. The sound bites are very similar. They showed Boomers, Spitters, & Chargers in the video, although with slight redesigns. They use the number 4 in the title. I sure hope Valve doesn't sue, but I can see why they may have a case. The game play trailer also shows what looks to be a 30 foot tall redesign of a Tank. This game looks fun as shit.

Interesting video up with the Devs talking bout their vision for Back 4 Blood....it's not going to be a L4D clone by any means.... Back 4 Blood Won't Just Be a Left 4 Dead Clone Says Turtle Rock Studios (playstationlifestyle.net)

I had it pre ordered and they canceled my pre order last night. The email says that's how they have to do it to unlist it and relist it with a new date. I'm okay with that as long as it ends up being true. Hope that isn't just lip service for a game that's going to be canceled...

Hopefully not but I didn't like seeing that October Date...I was hoping more like August at best......I had this and possibly Aliens;Fireteam down....but October might be good right before the Holiday Seasonal Rush we see late October and early November.
