Here’s something that was making the rumor rounds but we weren’t sure if it was happening or not. Back 4 Blood, the upcoming zombie shooter, is heading to Xbox Game Pass. When the game drops, Xbox Game Pass members will be able to hit the ground running, for free.
Today, Warner Bros. Games and Turtle Rock Studios showed off some new Back 4 Blood gameplay during the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase, with a first look at the upcoming multiplayer zombie shooter’s PvP Swarm mode. This mode will pit teams against each other as they switch between playing as the Cleaners and the Ridden, bringing an exciting way to experience the Back 4 Blood world from a new perspective.
It was also revealed that Back 4 Blood will be launching on day one with Xbox Game Pass on October 12 for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Windows PC, and cloud gaming (beta). Xbox Game Pass members will be able to hop online and join in the fray through a dynamic, perilous campaign where you must work together with other players to survive increasingly challenging scenarios. Play with up to three of your friends online, with full cross-play support between console and PC, and lead your team to battle the evil Ridden.
In addition, an open beta will be available on August 5-9, and it will be available for everyone who pre-ordered the game. Followed by another open beta on August 12-16, for all players.
Look for Back 4 Blood on October 12th, 2021 for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
