Back 4 Blood is a thrilling cooperative first-person shooter from the creators of the critically acclaimed Left 4 Dead franchise. You are 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.

Would be great if they included couch co-op again but I doubt it.

Are there any co-op games that have bothered to even try and do more than four players? Something like this you'd think would be reasonably easy to do (like... just scale the size of the horde to how many players are actually playing? Then you could have an actual "solo" experience and not "solo with three potentially useless AI players") Why are developers still sticking to restrictions that were only there in the first place because consoles only had four controller ports?

You'd think with a whole new generation developers would be more willing to branch out a bit, but clearly not.

I'd argue that you can't really make this into a solo game. So many, if not all, of the special infected in L4D were designed with co-op in mind. For example, the smoker was there to specifically separate individuals from the group. I completely understand wanting to play solo, I prefer solo games myself, but I feel like this is a game that would be genuinely hurt by designing it to accommodate solo play.

I'm actually after a co-op game that you could play with like... seven people :shifty: Literally the only one we've got in our rotation is Human Fall Flat, and as good as that is, there's not a lot of replay value once you've done *everything*

Try playing with the filters here: https://www.co-optimus.com/games.php (sounds like you want co-op campaign with at least 5 players)

The shooting always felt flat to me in Left 4 Dead. Looks the same in that trailer.

They need to get Take That to reform in order to do the theme song for this.

Closed Alpha starts Thurday for four days.



Game looks good, but that card system is just waiting for WB Games to take the piss with micro-transactions.

What the hell, this is saying the video is age restricted and I need to enter a credit card or scan my ID into google to confirm I can watch it? :lol:

It does appear to have an age-restriction on it that requires you to sign-in to watch. strawberry floating weird.

EDIT: There's a gameplay stream tomorrow apparently as well.

Speaking of the Alpha, I have two keys available to the first two people to ask for them in this thread.

Is the card system similar to the recent Battlefront games? If so, that's killed any interest I had in the game. I'm out.
