Left 4 Dead-alike Back 4 Blood is now in closed alpha

I’m sure we all have fond memories of the Left 4 Dead game and its brilliant sequel. But no matter how funny they are, the little-understood couple is not hiding, and it is enough for something to intervene to continue that cooperative massacre *. Fortunately, Turtle Rock’s Back 4 Blood has entered dark alpha today, and while it’s not Left 4 Dead 3 by name, early reports suggest that the developers have offered a solid successor to Bill and the classic zombie-zombie gang.

* That something was Warhammer: Vermintide 2, but you know. Fantasy hacking ‘n’ slashing is not to everyone’s taste, I can get that.

Following the unveiling of the gameplay at The Game Awards last week, Back 4 Blood has since opened recordings for closed alpha – an alpha that started right earlier tonight. Running up to next Monday, limited alpha will allow you to play at full level, with the new special infection (sorry, “Ridden”) and the game’s pseudo-roguelike cards, which see you countering a pack of “corruption modifiers” ”With his own hand of charity.

Although I haven’t had a shot at Back 4 Blood yet (and I have my own painful hangups when it comes to the aesthetics of the game compared to L4D), our Eurogamer friends had fun, considering that Back 4 Blood “really feels a bit as you might imagine he could play a new Left 4 Dead if he came out today. ” This is a nice promised start.

“Right now it’s just a pleasure to remember the power of the Turtle Rock formula introduced all those years ago and see where it can be pushed with modern technologies and techniques,” writes Martin Robinson. “It’s an emotion to see a team back doing what they do best and for what is shaping up to be a bloody moment.

You can register for Back 4 Blood alpha on the official website of the game. Then it’s just a matter of waiting for your invitation to appear. Do you want to run fast without mercy, anyone?
