A new boss was also revealed during the showcase, along with a brief new look at the gameplay:
‘Breaker’ is a giant, rock-like zombie with glowing hotspots, capable of leaping around the map and causing havoc for your crew of survivors. There’s also a shot of a really giant, frog-like monster at the end of the trailer — though it’s a pre-rendered scene, so we can’t yet be sure if you’ll actually encounter it.
Left 4 Dead fans have been waiting for a new game since the release of Left 4 Dead 2 in 2009. Back 4 Blood, created by a team of developers who worked on that sacred franchise, is ready to scratch that itch.
We’ll have all the news straight from Summer Game Fest 2021 and E3 2021 on Nerdshala, so stay tuned for more news.
