Back 4 Blood’s gameplay is quite similar to that of its spiritual predecessor, Left 4 Dead.

The game is set in a post-apocalyptic world after a global outbreak triggered by a recently discovered extraterrestrial parasite converted the majority of humankind into the “Ridden.”

Cards are a new addition to Back 4 Blood. At the start of each level, players must assemble a deck of cards that alter different aspects of gameplay, such as the patient’s life, damage, and stamina. Along with player cards, the AI Director will deploy Corruption cards to hamper the player’s progression. The AI has the ability to produce more opponents, activate a fog effect, and boost the scale of the horde. Check out the new trailer here:

According to the developers, the game has a more extensive plot than the previous Left 4 Dead titles. They went on to say that the players are doing more than just surviving and seeking safe-havens. They are fighting zombies in order to build safe zones. In addition, unlike the everymen in Left 4 Dead, the Cleaners (survivors) are more capable and competent. This is mirrored in the Cleaners’ conversation, who no longer sounds fearful of the infected. All the new 8 Cleaners and their abilities are shown here:
