Back 4 Blood Beta Reveals Characters, Maps and Launch Times For Several Countries
As many of you may know by now, there will be a Back 4 Blood beta phase happening prior to the game’s launch. Now, we’ve learned details on playable characters, maps, and the launch times for several countries across the globe.
Back 4 Blood Beta Vital Information
With most beta phases, participants usually get stuck with a single map as they just want people to get a feel of the game. In the case of the Back 4 Blood beta, Turtle Rock Studios will be letting gamers enjoy two maps for the Swarm PvP mode and two co-op maps to fight against the Ridden with other players.
- Play as six different Ridden variants in “Swarm,” including the Bruiser, Retch, Hocker, Exploder, Crusher and Stinger
- Various weapons to check out, cards to build decks and Ridden to slay
- Explore the Fort Hope communal hub
- Cross-play and cross-gen support
As for playable characters, we apparently have “Mom”, who is capable of dealing with situations and solving problems as they arise, along with Evangelo, Holly, Walker, and Hoffman in the beta. There is expected to be more in the final game.

Pokdepinion: I’m quite excited to play this game with friends but I’m worried this will go stale very fast. If it can introduce something new in the formula and not just be Left 4 Dead with a graphical update, then we have some hope for it.
