Back 4 Blood Will Not Have Versus Campaign Or Equivalent

Back 4 Blood will launch later this year, and is in the midst of a beta, which you can read more about through here. Various impressions have come out, and people are getting a good feel for the game, one way or another. As most people probably know, the game itself was developed and is being billed as a spiritual follow-up to Left 4 Dead, but it seems it will lack a fan favorite mode.

As detail by Reddit user RadiumPwd, they went to the game’s official Discord to ask if the game would get a Versus Campaign or something similar. While that question went unanswered for a bit, the game’s Design Director, Chris Ashton, answered that there were no plans in place for Back 4 Blood‘s own version of Versus Campaign and elaborated to say, ““We have a lot of defensive equipment and our specials are good at ambushing. Defending worked far better for our game than running from A-B.”

It probably isn’t too surprising since nothing had been said about that mode to this point, but Left 4 Dead fans will no doubt be disappointed. The mode in those games saw two team, one as the survivors and one as special Infected, battle over 3 rounds. It was a largely popular mode, so hopefully at least something similar down the road.

Back 4 Blood is set to release October 12th for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and PC. The game will also come to Xbox Game Pass day 1 of release.

Pretty unimpressed with alpha and beta tbh. It's fun for like half an hour but I feel the game is gonna get released in finished and gonna get pumped with dlc which is content that should have been in them game before launch. Definitely will be on sale before Christmas this year.


That, alongside no workshop is a big no from me.
