Back 4 Blood Story

In Back 4 Blood, humanity is almost wiped out by the Devil Worm parasite. However, our four main characters are somehow immune from the virus. The few remaining humans formed a group, “The Cleaners,” who wants to get rid of the infected, known as “The Ridders.”

The four main characters have different personalities and fighting styles. Each character carries a distinct weapon to go against the Ridders and survive the Zombie apocalypse.


Back 4 Blood lets players level up in the game with 3 friends in the co-op environment. Also, if friends aren’t available, players can choose to play with 3 AI teammates. Similar to Left 4 Dead, Back 4 Blood will feature giant zombies with some deadly abilities. So, teamwork will be essential in the game to win against the infected.

What’s truly impressive about Back 4 Blood is the Card system. Apparently, before starting a match with your friends, you can choose different cards to fill the 15-card deck. Each card will give certain benefits during the match, like stamina boost, quick healing, etc. Similarly, there are a variety of perks you get through the card system.

Other than that, the card system also decides what players will face during the match. The Game Director will choose “Corruption” cards, which will decide types of zombies, weather conditions, etc.
