Summer Games Fest has kicked into full gear and Back 4 Blood, the spiritual successor to the popular zombie co op shooter Left 4 Dead, got a new, if short, gameplay trailer announcing early access open beta dates.

The Back 4 Blood open beta will have two sessions: one for those given early access, either by pre-ordering the game or by registering at the official Back 4 Blood website, and one available to all. However, publisher Warner Bros. and developer Turtle Rock Studios say that registering does not guarantee an early access code since there are a limited number available. 

The first early access open beta lasts from August 5 to August 9, while the second portion of the beta, which is available to all players, will be from August 12 to August 16. Either portion of the beta can be played on PC, PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, or Xbox Series X|S.

The last look of Back 4 Blood trailer we got put a spotlight on some of the game’s available characters. Before that, Turtle Rock highlighted the Back 4 Blood card system, which lets players improve character abilities and create unique builds. 

We’ll soon get to see more of the zombie-slaughter-fest in action come June 13, when the game’s PvP showcase for Back 4 Blood goes live during the game’s E3 2021 presentation. That presentation can be seen over on the Back 4 Blood Twitch and YouTube channels, as well as Facebook. It starts at 5 p.m. EST. 

Back 4 Blood will launch on October 12 for PC, PS4, PS4, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. Stay tuned for more.
