October is here, and that means Back 4 Blood is just around the corner. So when does the full game release?

Back 4 Blood, a multiplayer first-person shooter, is a spiritual successor to the wildly popular Left 4 Dead series. Developed by Turtle Rock Studios, the game offers a four player co-op campaign where players need to fight through a world of ravenous zombies. A deadly outbreak has reduced the world to a post-apocalypic wasteland and it's the job of the "cleaners" to take back what's left.

The game, similar to Left 4 Dead, features a Game Director which adjusts the world based on player actions. Players having a particularly good run could find themselves faced with enemies who are deadlier than usual, aiming to ensure the gameplay remains dynamic throughout. Focusing on replayability, Back 4 Blood features a rogue-lite Card System, meaning players can tailor their game experience to keep things fresh time and time again.

So, when does this survival co-op officially launch?

When is the Back 4 Blood Release Date?

Back 4 Blood is set to release on Oct. 12, 2021. The game will be available on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC via the Microsoft Store, Steam and Epic Games Store. Players looking to get into the action on day one can purchase the Standard Edition for $59.99, the Deluxe Edition for $89.99, or the Ultimate Edition for $99.99.

It's important to note that due the nature of the game, an internet connection will be required to play all modes in Back 4 Blood. Even if playing solo, where A.I. control the other three teammates, an internet connection is still required.
