Back 4 Blood Campaign Trailer Tells the Story of the Apocalypse — And Getting Even

The newest Back 4 Blood trailer dives into the game's story and asks "How do we kill it?" The prescription? Firepower.

Turtle Rock Studios’ zombie survival shooter Back 4 Blood is less than a month away, launching for most major platforms on October 12. Until now, the development team hasn’t shared too many details about the game’s story, but the newest campaign trailer sheds some new light on the world in the post-apocalypse.

The world has been overrun by zombies, called Ridden in the game, that much we’ve known. And while the Back 4 Blood story trailer doesn’t go deep into the game’s lore or pull the curtain back on the narrative in great details, it’s clear that things happened fast and fierce. 

The world wasn’t prepared, and now everything’s gone straight to hell. But hope isn’t lost — a team of fearless Cleaners is out to push back the zombie horde and save the world. And they’ve got the firepower to prove it.

We know that there will be eight Cleaners (classes) in the game when it launches, including Doc, Evangelo, Hoffman, Holly, Jim, Karlee, Mom, and Walker. The trailer makes it clear that one of them, though, is in charge: the unmistakenly named Mom. She’s fiery and takes no shit from the team or those that stand in their way, human or Ridden.

While mankind must band together to rid itself from the horde set upon it, there are certainly factions at odds with each other, and not everyone is playing nicely.

Fans will learn more about the four-player co-op Back 4 Blood campaign soon enough on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Series X|S.
