The Back 4 Blood release is soon upon us! The beta of the game has proved hugely popular, and here at WePC we can’t wait until the full game finally comes out.

Back 4 Blood is a co-op zombie shooter in which up to four players must fight off waves of various ‘infected’ enemies known as ‘The Ridden’. If it sounds very similar to Left 4 Dead (in name and concept) that’s because the game is the creation of the original Left 4 Dead developers Turtle Rock Studios.
