The last update for Back 4 Blood came out on April 19. This update fixed bugs with cards, such as the effects displayed not applying the effects they should have. Sprint speed was also fixed when playing on the Recruit difficulty.
Back4Blood had its latest update in February 2022, and this patch was focused on bug fixes. What’s more exciting however is the announcement of new Back for Blood DLC, The Tunnels of Terror. This DLC will introduce a new playable character and new PvE gameplay.
This month has marked the announcement of the first major DLC for Back 4 Blood, called Tunnels of Terror. This DLC will launch with three new Warped Ridden, the Ridden Hives Activity, new weapons, Cleaners Sharice and Heng, and 8 Hazmat suit-based skins.
Back 4 Blood’s developers are currently working on fixing ghost bullets when latency is high. Running the game in DX11 seems to be the best solution for now, though a hotfix has been released to fix the problem more permanently. That being said, further fixes may be released further down the line.
Back 4 Blood’s December 2021 Update added features like an offline campaign complete with progression. There are also new supply lines mechanics consisting of roving merchants as well as some new cards known as burn cards. This update also marked the start of the Holiday Seasonal Event.
The November 2021 update for Back 4 Blood featured a few adjustments, including a decrease in repetition of special spawns. Specials are also a lot less likely to spawn in a stack, meaning that you won’t have to face a bunch of specials at once just because the director decided to on a particular run.
In mid-October, Back 4 Blood’s developers released a pretty controversial update in which they turned down the difficulty of the game’s campaign. This was in response to complaints from some players stating that the game was too difficult. The community is split on whether or not this was a good change, as some have stated that the game has now become too easy.
While games like Black Ops Cold War and Call of Duty Vanguard may feature zombies, they aren’t the centerpiece of the action. In fact, it’s been some time since we’ve had a game focused on zombies in the vein of Left 4 Dead, but that’s all about to change thanks to the release of Back 4 Blood.
Back 4 Blood is being released by Warner Brothers Games, the publishers of the Batman Arkham series, and the game is being developed by Turtle Rock Studios. If you have a long enough memory, you may remember that this is the studio that developed the original Left 4 Dead game.
Many players assume that Back 4 Blood is a simple remake of Left 4 Dead, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. This game is meant to be the series’s spiritual successor, however, this doesn’t mean that the gameplay will be identical, as the game will feature a few shifts to make it more modern.
As you would expect, the story of Back 4 Blood is pretty similar to what we’ve seen from other games with a setting like it. The game is set in a world that has been ravaged by the Devil Worm parasite, and it has made people into zombies that are referred to as the Ridden in the game’s lore.
Unlike Left 4 Dead, the game flips your motivations on their head. While Left 4 Dead had you escaping zombie hordes so that you could make it to safehouses, you’re trying to clear out the Ridden in Back 4 Blood. This means that you have to continue fighting until you’ve cleared areas of zombies.
As you would expect, a lot about this title is similar to Left 4 Dead, including the game’s cooperative nature. It’s designed to allow you to fight through infested zones with three of your friends, but the game also features a competitive mode known as Swarm, once again, reminiscent of Left 4 Dead.
In this mode, there are four survivors taking on the hordes, but there are also four players on the zombie side that are tasked with playing as special zombies. This allows you to fight the human players and potentially trap them with your teamwork, dividing them and conquering them with ease.
This competitive mode means that you’ll have to play against other humans, and it’s likely the part of the game in which you’ll most likely want to use hacks. This will allow you to get the competitive edge against other human players, who are typically more difficult to beat than simple AI.
Back 4 Blood has been a bit of a controversial game because of the systems that it has implemented over the course of its development. Keep in mind that this isn’t only restricted to the game’s anti-cheat, it’s also due to the game’s use of the Denuvo anti-piracy system.
One of the main issues that players have with Denuvo is that the system doesn’t only punish players that pirate the game, but also legitimate players. This happens because of the performance impact that occurs due to Denuvo always running in the background, despite people having purchased the game legitimately.
What this results in is a loss of FPS that means that you’ll never be able to experience Back 4 Blood at its best for your hardware. Hopefully the gaming industry will find a better solution to piracy than Denuvo, but for the time being, it doesn’t look like things are going to get much better for legit players.
