Back 4 Blood open beta begins in August, features PvP and co-op content

By Sean Carey,
WB Games and developer Turtle Rock Studios have detailed what we can expect from Back 4 Blood's two open betas next month.


The Early Access open beta runs from August 5th to the 9th and is available to those who have preordered the Left 4 Dead-inspired shooter. Those interested can also register over on the Back 4 Blood website for a chance to get into the Early Access beta. Then, running from August 12th to the 16th, a second beta will be available to all players. Both betas also feature cross-play and cross-gen support.

In both betas, you'll have access to two maps for the Swarm PvP mode, two co-op maps to fight off enemies known as Ridden with your pals, and can play as a variety of characters and six different Ridden variants in Swarm. There will also be numerous weapons to check out, card decks to build, and the Fort Hope communal hub to explore.

Back 4 Blood launches for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Windows 10 on October 12th and also joins Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass for PC on day one.
