The team behind Left 4 Dead, now called Turtle Rock Studios, showed fans some brand new footage of gameplay of their co-op zombie shooter, Back 4 Blood. Take a look at the trailer below.

During the Summer Game Fest kickoff yesterday, confirmation that the game’s open beta is due to go ahead later this year, starting August 5th.

A little of the Back 4 Blood story was shown off and it takes place after a catastrophic outbreak where most of humanity has either been killed or infected. A group of apocalypse veterans called the Cleaners have rallied to take on the infected horrors, known as the Ridden, and reclaim the world.

With any luck, fans will have a chance to take on the beast during August’s aforementioned open beta.

Additionally, the Back 4 Blood E3 2021 PvP Showcase will take place on June 13 at 10pm BST, providing an in-depth look at the game’s new PvP (player versus player) mode. Tune in to the official Back 4 Blood Twitch, YouTube or Facebook channels to watch the upcoming gameplay reveal, as well as a discussion with Turtle Rock Studios.

Back 4 Blood arrives October 12th for Xbox One, Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and PC.
