Back 4 Blood Beta: Test period to get underway in August

Back 4 Blood Open Beta will get underway in August.

Details regarding the eagerly anticipated Back 4 Blood Beta test has been announced by the game's developers.

The intense co-op first-person shooter is finally making a return as part of the infamous Left 4 Dead (L4D) series that was a phenomenal success during the 2000s with the first two editions of the franchise.

With the series set to make its debut on next-generation consoles PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S, Warner Bros. Games and Turtle Rock Studios have taken it upon themselves to organise a testing period for keen fans of the series.

Not only will the old player-versus-player (PvP) game mode be returning, they will be adding "Swarm" where two teams of four will go head-to-head in a series of rounds playing as the Cleaners and the Ridden, which are zombies.

Players will have the opportunity to get their hands on this game mode in the coming weeks as the developers revealed the following details regarding the all-important beta.
