Turtle Rock Announces New Co-Op Zombie Game Back 4 Blood

Turtle Rock Announces New Co-Op Zombie Game Back 4 Blood

In a release on the Turtle Rock site, the two studios announced that Back 4 Blood was being designed as a premium AAA co-op zombie shooter, one that aimed to add "new features" and modern technology into the spirit and style of co-op shooters like Left 4 Dead.

One of the originators of the co-op survival shooter genre is stepping back into the zombie-infested battlefield with a brand new game. While developer Turtle Rock Studios had a great concept on their hands, the execution of it and the eventual brouhaha over how publisher 2K Games chose to monetise the game to hell and back with a ludicrous amount of downloadable content made Evolve feel less like a tense game of hunting nightmare fuel monsters and more like a devolution of the genre. And while there may never be a Left 4 Dead 3, Turtle Rock shocked the world on Thursday with a surprise announcement.

"It's hard to overstate what an awesome opportunity this is", said Turtle Rock's Chris Ashton. Its goal is to take all it's learned and push forward. There will be a campaign and player vs. player modes, but we'll have to wait a while longer to learn about the story or the new features the studio is bringing to Back 4 Blood.

No release date or window was revealed and Back 4 Blood will release on PS4, Xbox One, and PC when it's ready.

"Is this game going to be a Battle Royale game?". In fact, at the time Valve purchased Turtle Rock in early 2008 (several months before the first game was released), Valve president Gabe Newell said the purchase was "an easy decision" due to "our expectations for Left 4 Dead". It calls "Back 4 Blood" the "biggest challenge in this studio's history". Most of the details are still a mystery, though the prospect alone should be enough to get Left 4 Dead fans excited.

"We know this title has to stand out and we fully intend to make that happen", said Turtle Rock Studios co-founder and creative director Phil Robb.

There is now no release date or other information given for this new game announcement, which makes it such a odd way to reveal a game.

We also want to hear from you all about what you think about the games we've made in the past and what you are looking forward to in the future.
