‘Left 4 Dead’ developer returns with a new co-op zombie shooter

Back 4 Blood

There is now no release date or other information given for this new game announcement, which makes it such a unusual way to reveal a game. Turtle Rock's most famous franchise is Left 4 Dead, of course, but despite the similarities in name and theme, the new title is a "brand new, original IP". All I'll say is I hope it's more than just "Left 4 Dead with the serial numbers filed off".

The creators of Left 4 Dead and Evolve have announced Back 4 Blood, an all-new co-op zombie shooter that is looking to channel the spirit of the popular and critically-acclaimed Left 4 Dead series.

Presumably, the "state-of-the-art" tech being referred to are some of the newer GPU technologies such as real-time ray tracing and deep learning super sampling, but we won't be sure until much later in the development process.

For those that have been dying for a new Left 4 Dead game over the past few years, this news should bring a smile to your face. That is a good thing since the studio's last production, the F2P Evolve: Stage 2 never lived up to the hype. "We know that's a tall order", added Turtle Rock's Phil Robb. It would be interesting to see how a modern Left 4 Dead-like game will hold up. Interactive Entertainment will serve as Back 4 Blood's publisher. It certainly sounds like it since it is still a four-player co-op zombie FPS.

Thoughts on the latest venture from the team over at Turtle Rock?

"No, [this is not L4D3]". It's a brand new, original IP with zombie shooting similar to L4D but with features and mechanics that make it unique.

With so little to tell us, why are you announcing now? "We get to return to a genre that was born in our studio with over ten years of additional experience and zombie ideas racked up in our brains", said Chris Ashton, co-founder and design director, Turtle Rock Studios, in a news release. As an independent studio, we have to announce early to let our industry know we're up to something big. Well, it turns out that it's cancelled, but Turtle Rock hasn't been resting on their laurels. The Turtle Rock team has put together a pretty comprehensive FAQ though, which reveals the game will be initially developed for PC, Xbox One and PS4 - teases next-gen machines like PS5 and Xbox Project Scarlett versions - and will be a "premium, AAA title".
