The Back 4 Blood closed alpha went live last week and it seems that gamers across the community can’t get enough of the game considered to be the spiritual successor to Left 4 Dead 2.
Back 4 Blood is developed by Turtle Rock Studios, the team behind the cult-classic co-op multiplayer series Left 4 Dead and Counter Strike. The team is also responsible for Evolve, but the less said about that the better.
Over the years fans have been longing for a Left 4 Dead 3 and despite continued rumours and expectations, it seems that Valve who owns the Left 4 Dead license has little interest in reviving this series.
However to be fair to Valve, the company did officially release the community-made expansion for Left 4 Dead 2, The Last Stand, back in September 2020.
So with Turtle Rock Studios not officially being able to develop Left 4 Dead 3 (at least not yet), the developer has seemingly released the next best thing with the very similarly named Back 4 Blood.
At The Game Awards earlier this month we finally got to have a proper look at Back 4 Blood with a gameplay reveal and it looked awesome!
However with the launch of the closed alpha this week, we’re able to get an even better look at the highly anticipated multiplayer co-op shooter.
You can check out some gameplay of the alpha from us below.
With a detailed look at the gameplay of Back 4 Blood being in the wild, it has been largely well-received by fans on Twitter who have been sharing their excitement for the game.
“I’m excited to see where this game goes, there’s definitely potential here,” said SirCrackleBulb on Twitter.
While another Twitter follower could barely contain their excitement, writing: “This game…holy f*cking s*** this game is insane. I LIKE IT!!!”
