Earlier today, the folks behind Left 4 Dead‘s spiritual successor, Back 4 Blood, released a new trailer. At the same time, the developer and its publishing partner also revealed the pre-order bonuses that those who reserve or pre-purchase the game will receive.
Let’s talk about the card system first.
Compared to systems used in roguelike games, Back 4 Blood‘s system will allow you to unlock and use different cards to alter your gaming experience. These can make things harder, give buffs to certain players or enemies or take skills away. You’ll find out more by watching the aforementioned trailer.
In related news, those who pre-order this game will receive ‘Fort Hope Elite Skins,’ plus four weapons:
- M4 Carbine
- UZI SMG
- S70 Shotgun
- RPK LMG
If you weren’t already aware, please note that Turtle Rock expects to release Back 4 Blood on October 12th of this year. Here’s hoping it’ll make that date, because we’re itching to get our hands on it!
