Back 4 Blood PvP details announced

Action game will support competitive multiplayer, will debut with Xbox Game Pass

Posted on

Warner Bros. Games and Turtle Rock Studios have announced details about the competitive PvP (player versus player) “Swarm” mode in Back 4 Blood.

In Swarm mode, two squads of four will face off against each other in a best-of-three series of rounds as teams swap between playing as the Cleaners and the Ridden. Points are then awarded based on how long the Cleaners can stay alive and endure Ridden attacks, with the team that keeps the clock going the longest as Cleaners winning the match.

While playing from the Ridden perspective, gamers can choose from nine Ridden variants, including the Tallboy, Bruiser, Crusher, Reeker, Exploder, Retch, Stinger, Hocker and Stalker. Each Ridden type has their own unique abilities that can be upgraded with enhancements called mutations.

Back 4 Blood Open Beta will begin with an Early Access portion from August 5-9 for those who pre-order the game. The Open Beta will continue from Aug. 12-16 and be available for all players. Both Open Beta portions will be playable on all platforms, including cross-play and cross-gen support.

Back 4 Blood will be available for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC on October 12, 2021. It was also revealed that Back 4 Blood will be launching on day one with Xbox Game Pass.
