The Warner Bros. Back 4 Blood’s road map of upgrades for later this year and into next year has recently been announced. The publisher posted these end-of-year plans for the zombie multiplayer, along with a few tidbits about upcoming features and content.
The majority of this month’s updates are quality-of-life enhancements and important bug fixes. With campaign progression, December brings new features including supply lines, a Ridden Practice area, and a solo offline mode. This winter update adds new card types and cards to the game’s card system, which should help to spice up the current meta.
Next year, further content and cosmetics are expected to be added, including a new difficulty level, player and corruption cards, and melee upgrades. A new co-op mode is apparently on the way, which could imply that players will be able to play split-screen co-op for the first time. The road map provided by Turtle Rock Studios simply provides an overview of the developer’s plans rather than particular details. Players should, however, expect to hear more in the coming weeks.
Back 4 Blood’s story will be expanded through a “annual pass,” according to the developers. These go beyond the four current acts and begin with Tunnels of Terror. The developer hasn’t provided the dates for any of the three expansions, but they will be released in 2022. With the 2022 update, new playable Cleaners and Ridden, as well as weapons, cards, and exclusive skins, should be available.
Back 4 Blood was published last month and is now available on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
