This is unlikely to sit well with Left 4 Dead fans, as that game did allow players to battle to the safe house while fending off zombies controller by other gamers. Back 4 Blood features a versus mode, although this has players switching turns while controlling Cleaners and Ridden in action-packed clashes.
Anyway, one fan asked Co-Founder and Design Director Chris Aston about why this feature was ‘cut,’ to which he replied:
We have a lot of defensive equipment and our specials are good at ambushing. Defending worked far better for our game than running from A-B.
A quick look on the Back 4 Blood Reddit revealed that fans weren’t exactly chuffed by the news, with someone labelling the game ‘quite literally dead on arrival.’
Back 4 Blood is pencilled in for release on October 12, 2021 for PS5, PS4, PC, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One.
