Back 4 Blood will launch on Xbox Game Pass in a few days! You can pre-install it right now on Xbox, which means you can get ready for launch right now.
As launch day approaches, we hope to have a lot of looks and teases on what’s to come. The last one we have from the game is a campaign trailer.
UPDATE – Back 4 Blood Early Access starts today!
The Back 4 Blood early access period begins today for those who have pre-ordered the Ultimate or Deluxe editions of the game. The Game Pass version will arrive on Tuesday, October 12 alongside the Standard Edition.
Back 4 Blood will require constant internet connection
In what has been received as disappointing news, Turtle Rock recently revealed that Back 4 Blood will require an internet connection to play at launch.
Some have wondered if they are really looking to create an offline mode after launch, why is this not a priority for the first day given that not everyone has access to a solid internet connection so that the game is running correctly.
Pre-install Back 4 Blood on Xbox consoles
Xbox has made sure the world is aware of the quality of Game Pass service. By the end of E3 2021, they had announced 27 titles that will launch day one on Game Pass. Some of them are now available for pre-installation.
You can now pre-install Back 4 Blood on your Xbox console. To do this, go to the “Coming soon” section in the Game Pass app and select the pre-install option. The file takes up less than 300MB, but its purpose is to trigger the pre-installation of the full game when it is available so that there is no waiting on launch day,
Return 4 Blood Game Pass Release date
Back 4 Blood will be released on October 12, 2021. This date is the result of a previous delay bringing the game out of its original June 2021 window.
The developers Turtle Rock Studios have incredibly high expectations for the game, which means they wouldn’t want to rush it and risk issues that could take away from gamers’ enjoyment.
Back 4 Blood Cross-Play
Yes, Back 4 Blood intends to fully support crossplay from launch. This was an important thing for the developers to include given the heavyweight cooperative nature of the campaign.
They don’t want barriers erected in the game by something simple, like players on different platforms. Cross-play will be activated during all remaining beta phases.
Does Back 4 Blood offer PvP multiplayer?
Yes, Back 4 Blood will launch with a PVP multiplayer mode, however, these are not direct death matches. Back 4 Blood’s multiplayer mode is called Swarm Mode.
In a best-of-three format, you take turns playing the Cleaners to survive against the Riding Horde for as long as possible.
Opponents will play as one of nine special characters to try and kill you as soon as possible. The team with the longest survival time wins the round, the first team with two wins in the round wins.
Will Back 4 Blood have DLC?
Absoutely! Turtle Rock intends to support Back 4 Blood in the long term with both paid and free DLC. As part of their commitment to ensuring smooth and smooth cooperation, if you play with your friends who own DLC, you will not be left out of the lobby.
That’s right, only one player in a lobby needs to own a DLC for everyone to play!
Return 4 Blood Beta
Back 4 Blood has a final beta coming in August. It will be a fully open beta, but with two phases.
The first phase is the Early Access Open Beta, available to anyone who pre-ordered the game. If you pre-ordered physically, you’ll need a code you pre-ordered from to access the beta.
If your pre-order is digital, the beta download will be available through the same store you pre-ordered when it launched. This beta will run from August 5 to 9, 2021.
The main open beta is available to anyone who signs up on the Back 4 Blood website. This will take place a little later, from August 12 to 16, 2021.
