Left 4 Dead Makers Are Back With A New Zombie Game

And while the Left 4 Dead comparisons will be inevitable, the developer says it's an original IP with a lot of "new stuff" that's unique to Back 4 Blood. Our goal is to take all we've learned and push forward.' calling the game 'the biggest challenge in this studio's history'. 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.

"We get to return to a genre that was born in our studio with over ten years of additional experience and zombie ideas racked up in our brains", Turtle Rock Studios design director and co-founder Chris Ashton said. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment will also be on publishing duties for Back 4 Blood, which is coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Right now we are just excited to tell our community what we have been working on! If that sounds familiar, that's because it's envisioned as a spiritual successor to Left 4 Dead and is made by the creators of that very franchise.

Turtle Rock has no word on a release date. The game is - hold onto your butts - a co-op zombie shooter called Back 4 Blood. The Left 4 Dead games remain some of the best co-op shooters around and, while Vermintide scratches a similar itch, I prefer shooting the undead to those lovely Skaven rat boys. "We know this title has to stand out and we fully intend to make that happen", said co-founder and creative director Phil Robb. Their ill-fated partnership with 2K Games never really panned out, even after the proposed "Stage 2" resurrection of the alien-centric Evolve, but now their eyes are on the prize and firmly fixed back on zombies. Evolve's dedicated servers were officially shut down last September, though the game can still be played over peer-to-peer connections.
