WHAT CONTENT DOES THE BACK 4 BLOOD OPEN BETA CONTAIN?
Back 4 Blood is the latest game from Turtle Rock which is the team that created Left 4 Dead so things will feel familiar right off the bat. The beta provides a really good amount of content that you can play through including two co-op campaign missions From Act 1 that allow you to see a good variety of locations and enemies. You can mix and match between the available characters for a number of different weapons and abilities.
There’s also the PvP Swarm Mode where two squads of four face off in a best-of-three series of rounds swapping between playing as the Cleaners and the Ridden. During the open beta there’s two maps to play through in the Swarm mode and a good amount of different Ridden characters to try out.
You’re also able to check out the all-new rogue-lite Card System mechanic which creates different experiences every time you play, allows you to build custom decks, equip special skills to your characters and also engage map mechanics that change the way that you play. You’re also able to explore Fort Hope to take aim in the shooting range, or hang out with your squad mates.
