Back 4 Blood open beta begins in August

By Sean Carey,
During Summer Game Fest: Kickoff Live, WB Games revealed a short gameplay trailer for its upcoming co-op zombie shooter Back 4 Blood and announced that the game is getting an open beta, which kicks off in August.

The brief trailer gives us another look at that Left 4 Dead-inspired gameplay, complete with plenty of blood, explosions, and zombies. WB Games says it will be giving a more in-depth look at Back 4 Blood during its own Back 4 Blood E3 PvP Showcase on Sunday.

An open beta for the game will begin on August 5th, running until August 9th for those who preorder the first-person shooter. You can also register for a chance to access this beta over on the Back4Blood website. Another open beta planned for August 12th and running until August 16th will be available to all players. Both beta weekends can be accessed from Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One consoles and will support cross-play and cross-gen.

Back 4 Blood launches for Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One on October 12th.
