In a surprising announcement, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Turtle Rock have partnered on a new title. Turtle Rock has announced Back 4 Blood. This is a co-op zombie game, described as an “original, premium title.”
Turtle Rock has a long history of developing co-op titles, with zombies in Left 4 Dead and hunters taking on a massive monster in Evolve.
More information from the press release:
Chris Ashton, Co-founder and Design Director at Turtle Rock Studios, said that “It’s hard to overstate what an awesome opportunity this is. 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,” adding that “We also have some of the best teammates in the business at WBIE who understand our development process and are equally committed to our player-first mentality. We love being able to announce, so we can start working with the community right away.”
Back 4 Blood is coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, though Turtle Rock is open to more platforms. This is not a battle royale game however, player vs player combat will be included. For more information on the game, you can check the FAQ right here.
