Turtle Rock Studios, the developer behind the upcoming zombie co-op shooter Back 4 Blood and the original Left 4 Dead series, has released a new PC trailer. One of the core features of the PC trailer is the confirmation of Back 4 Blood cross-play, confirming that PC players will be able to play with their console counterparts.
The Back 4 Blood cross-play announcement was merely a snippet in a new multiplayer gameplay trailer, which also revealed 4K support, uncapped FPS (frames per second), multi-monitor support, DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling), and a welcome plethora of PC video settings.
In a separate statement issued to the press, Turtle Rock Studios mentioned players will get to test cross-play and cross-generation support in the Back 4 Blood beta. The information confirms that cross-play will extend to Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC, including the various PC stores, such as the Epic Games Store and Steam. Those who pre-order Back 4 Blood will be able to gain access to the Early Access beta from Aug 5-9. The servers then go offline as Turtle Rock prepares for Back 4 Blood’s Open Beta for all platforms from August 12-16. Turtle Rock Studios appear to be opting for the same crossplay strategy that EA and Dice are testing with the Battlefield 2042 Technical Test later this summer.
We will need to get hands-on with the beta for more concrete details on the Back 4 Blood crossplay feature. But for now, it is a good sign for all those who wish to slay zombies in this highly anticipated AAA zombie co-op shooter.
