After hours of playing Back 4 Blood, a new cooperative survival shooter from left 4 Dead Turtle Rock Studios, I still have two questions: How legal is it? When can I play again? It turns out right now.
IN Back 4 Blood The open beta will run from August 5 to August 9 and again from August 12 to 16 on PC, Xbox and PlayStation consoles. I got a chance to take a look at what the beta has to offer on PC with a focus on PvE content as there were some technical issues with PvP modes during my game. They were resolved and I was told that PvP is ready for open beta testing.
Not that you expect it to be perfect. Turtle Rock Studios Uses Open Beta for Fine Tuning Back 4 Blood before its release on October 12th, and the developers are serious about collecting as much feedback as possible. There is something to track: the game uses left 4 Dead-Ai style director that adjusts the difficulty level in real time as you fight the Ridden crowds in your own way. There is also a card system that allows players to create class-specific perk decks, as well as corruption cards that apply random effects to each level, changing the gameplay each time. And it’s a true cross-platform game available across multiple generations of consoles and PCs. This is all in addition to a new PvP mode and core PvE gameplay that must feel butter if it wants to satisfy Turtle Rock. left 4 Dead fans.
I’m one of those fans and I must say I like it as hell Back 4 Blood… left 4 Dead this is the key game of my past, and Back 4 Blood delightfully uses these good feelings.
I am most interested in PvE as it is the core of my nostalgia in this case, and I ended up spending about two hours in the main co-op mode with some new friends. The Open Beta includes two PvE maps for co-op and two maps for Swarm PvP, where teams of four take turns fighting each other as cleaners (protagonists) and riders (infected ex-humans). A new character, Mama, also makes her first playable The Cleaners list.
One thing that stands out in Back 4 Blood it’s the feeling of being replayed. While the levels feel familiar, they are full of secrets and naturally encourage dynamic play by offering different ways to approach any given encounter. The card system adds a wonderful level of customization to the game, while the corruption cards make each new round a little different, just a little more exciting. Here you can also collect a variety of weapons and items, as well as a large amount of ammunition on all maps, especially if you are going on reconnaissance.
Shooting with Ridden is great fun with any weapon, while Special Ridden is shocking to be captured or shot down almost every time. Meanwhile, the dialogue between the Cleaners is cute, with references to the “new normal”, lizard people in government, and the lagging media to name a few opportunities for jokes. main characters Back 4 Blood not shocked or fleeing; Their mission is to eradicate the Hidden and create safe zones for the resumption of human life. It’s a refreshing twist on perspective.
During work with Back 4 Bloodopen beta testing, but at this stage of development, there is nothing irresistible. Basically, I trust Turtle Rock to get the open beta feedback and apply it to the game in the smartest and bloodiest way possible for the October launch.
