Introduced for the first time during the Game Awards 2019, Back 4 blood has remained very quiet since then. The title was available for pre-order very early on. Developed by the fathers of left 4 DeadThe game raises a lot of expectations. It also uses the codes that made its predecessor’s success while the formula was being reinvented. We already presented some of the new functions to you last December, such as the “Game Director”. The latter is the central element of the new trailer to show its operation in more detail.
Behind this generic name is an artificial intelligence that gives rhythm to all your games. She analyzes the health, actions and decisions of the players present at any point in a game and can define actions to try to tip the scales in their favor and make your life difficult. Using a card system, this functionality comes very close to what can be found in “Rogue-Lites”. At the start of the game, the AI selects a bunch of corruption cards that it can use to change the environment or the level of difficulty. To balance the set, players also have their own cards available to take advantage of the benefits they offer.
It could just as easily range from regenerating health from burning enemies to reloading your weapons faster or consuming more ammunition. The promise lies in rich replayability with no part resembling the previous one. It will be necessary to wait for the game to be released to form a final opinion. Nevertheless, the proposal remains interesting and arouses curiosity.
Back 4 blood is scheduled for release on October 12, 2021 on Xbox Series, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, and PC.
And you expect the continuation of the legendary left 4 Dead ?
