Back 4 Blood Roadmap Reveals New Co-Op Mode, Difficulty, And Solo Offline Release Timing
Back 4 Blood is going to get a bunch of new features starting in December and into 2022. These include heavily-requested features like a new co-op mode, new difficulty level, and even an offline mode.
Turtle Rock has announced that this month the team will focus on various quality of life improvements and bug fixes. The biggest feature coming in December is an offline solo mode with campaign progression. This was a much-requested feature since playing Back 4 Blood requires an internet connection, even when playing solo.
Also in December, there will be new supply lines and cards as well as a new Ridden practice area, card type, and holiday seasonal event.
In 2022, there will be even more content such as a new difficulty level, new co-op mode, melee updates, and additional quality of life improvements, as well as both new player and corruption cards.
Back 4 Blood’s first story expansion, Tunnels of Terror will also launch in 2022. It’s part of the game’s Annual Pass and introduces new playable characters and Ridden types. The pass comes with new weapons, cards, skins, and a new activity type. Expansions 2 and 3 are scheduled to launch later in 2022.
IGN’s Back 4 Blood review praised the co-op horror shooter saying, “Between its stellar card augmentations, excellent campaign, and jovial tone that creeps into every facet of its design, Back 4 Blood puts some exciting new spins on a familiar genre.”
