Default Back 4 Blood (October 12, 2021)

I know we all pretty much already know about the game, but one of the several things that would have normally been a big deal now kind of getting overlooked is the announcement of Back 4 Blood coming to Game Pass on Day 1.

I mentioned it in another thread. This one one of the few games I was planning to buy later this year, and now I get to play it for free on Game Pass. Weíll have to try to get some blu-ray.com groups together for some co-op.

It's the perfect Game Pass game too. It'll have DLC if you want to add on to it, and it'll be good for friends.

Someone told me that the reason it's going to Gamepass though is that interest/presale numbers were well under expectations...so they cut the deal.

Which might not be a good thing lol.

Gamepass will only help this games overall playerbase. Especially since its going to game pass on console and PC.

Yeah, but I meant more overall in the media and likely elsewhere as well. I know when it was first announced, it was a big enough deal given that people have been wanting Left 4 Dead 3 for a long time and now we're basically getting that.

I would love to find some people to play this with. I played one of the first two with a group of people and one of them solo. Solo is still fine, but obviously playing with a group is much better.

If that's true, there's a good chance that it being on Game Pass on Day 1 will help reach the popularity people thought it would based on the initial buzz. If reviews are good, then word of mouth will be huge since it'll be "free" to try.

Open beta is out for early access (if you pre-ordered it or are on WBGames mailing list online as far as I know). I got an invite through WBGames today, but haven't downloaded it yet.

Anybody try it out yet?

With 4 human players, it’s really fun. With bots, it’s absolutely stupid. I started off playing with 3 other players, then I somehow got dropped from that session so it pushed me into my “own” session, with bots, and the bots are useless. They stand around while being attacked. They don’t heal themselves. And In sections of the game where it tells you to run, the bots will lag behind, not try to revive each other, die, and then leave you to fend for yourself. I blazed through the first few parts of act 1 with a 4 player team with relative ease. Once I was stuck with bots, my longest run was less than 3 minutes.

Hopefully the bots are tweaked some by release.

Didn't get a whole lot of time to try it out today, but since I knew that I didn't have much time, I tried Versus. I thought it was pretty bad. I obviously preferred the Campaign to Versus in the Left 4 Dead games, but I think it was probably better regardless.

I will give the Campaign portion a shot at some point this weekend. It's been a long time, so I could be wrong, but playing both Left 4 Dead games solo was still enjoyable. Obviously playing with other people was much better, but it was still enjoyable enough. I'm hoping to enjoy that as I'm not downloading the full game at all otherwise.

I never played Versus much in the Left 4 Dead games. I used to really get into competitive online MP, now I donít really care much for it in any game. I prefer co-op experiences.

I have not played it any more since my first session, but I will spend some more time with it tomorrow.

I enjoyed this a lot. Campaign only. Hated the pvp in L4D, and fully expect it to be the same thing here, so I didn't bother.

You can add me on Xbox. My gamer tag is the same as my name here. I plan to play some more tonight. Iíve actually finished all of Act 1 that they have available in the beta. I just donít care for playing with bots. As soon as you get to a mission like Act 1 chapter 4, where your whole group has to just run and not stay and fight, my bot teams lag behind and die and then Iím stuck trying to set the explosives by myself.

Seems like we need to get a Blu-ray Forums team put together when this launches!
