Back 4 Blood’s New Trailer Shows It Running In 4K

Back 4 Blood has a new PC trailer that shows the game running in 4K and, we have to admit, it looks good.

The latest trailer for this upcoming squad zombie shooter has apparently been captured directly on a PC and features many of the bells and whistles the game’s PC incarnation will sport. The features listed include:

  • An uncapped 4K framerate
  • Nvidia DLSS (AI-based supersampling which will pretty up the game)
  • Ultra-wide monitor support
  • Crossplay (not specifically a PC feature but it should make it easier to get a match)

Sounds good, right? It certainly looks good. What’s not mentioned, however, is the fact you need to be online to play the game. You will be able to play with computer-controlled “bot” players but unlike Left 4 Dead, Back 4 Blood’s spiritual prequel, you can’t play entirely offline. That’s put us off the game a little bit so we’re hoping that’s remedied fairly soon after release.

Back 4 Blood is set for an October 12th release date, on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X and PlayStation 4 and 5, with a beta launching in August though the trailer suggests you’ll have to pre-order to gain access to it. You can check out the new trailer here.

Chris has been gaming since the days of the Acorn Electron, which was allegedly purchased to 'help him with his homework'. You can probably guess how well that went. He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
