Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Turtle Rock Studios have announced Back 4 Blood, from the creators and development team behind the critically acclaimed, co-op phenomenon Left 4 Dead.
Now THIS is very exciting news!
Really? Evolve was terrible.
This isn't Evolve though. Two great Left 4 Dead games, one not so great game with Evolve, then fans asking for a return to L4D and they announce this return to their roots and people are still complaining?
Evolve wasn't a terrible game as far as gameplay. The way they released it with different versions and DLC up the ying yang was a mess though.
I didn't like the concept of Evolve, but this isn't what Evolve was and it doesn't mean this dev team isn't still talented. I'm very interested in this one!
I liked the concept of Evolve the problem was relying on others to play it properly. You were either with a team that were terrible, noobs or just not very team focued or you had a player playing the monster who was just as terrible. It made a lot of the game sessions terrible. It's the same type of experiences I've had with Friday the 13th or Dead by Daylight. If the monster was perhaps controlled by an AI or if they just would have made a L4D design type of game set in space it would have been much better experience.
Eh. I like evolve, at least being a monster
Evolve was not terrible, it was just too much to assume gamers would actually work together in an online game
Why is it exciting?
Why does the heart want what it wants?
Why is it not exciting?
You must be down voted by people who have never played the L4D series.
It's a MP, online focused game so I can see why some here might disagree with me being excited for this game.
?? Evolve is a good game. It’s the same concept as two recent games . Dead by daylight and Friday the 13th. They killed it with dlc and it was the most atrocious use of dlc.
After EVOLVE happened, I'm not at all hyped. That was a mess.
I doubt this will be like Evolve, but I agree. The concept was intriguing, but the execution was a complete fail.
Completely lost faith in this team after Evolve, that game was GARBAGE. Hopefully this isn't more of the same. They could've done anything after left 4 dead and they made that, who knows how many people from the original left 4 dead teams are even left. Now they're going to do another zombie game when zombies are currently the most overused trend in gaming. Great. That greedy joke gabe newell should have let them make left 4 dead 3 years ago when there was still interest.
Technically many trends are overused. It’s how you use them. I personally hope there is always zombie/post-apocalyptic experiences. Allows players to relate to what they would do in a real world scenario.
Speak for yourself. Evolve looked great and had some great ideas, it was just too hard to balance the 5 v 1 thing, especially when teams did not work together or ppl did not know how to play their class. But they made 2 amazing games and one that did not hit. Most of my friends would love a another left 4 dead style game. I am playing vermintide 2 at the mo
Hopefully they learned from Evolve. That game had so much potential with the world building and everything, but they decided to make it purely PvP with some PvE elemnts in it which I think was a bad move. Had it been a full on co-op game that takes players through various levels or a similar structure to Borderlands then I think it would've been much better.
I had high hopes for evolve, but it was released as a turd. I think it wasn't the team's decision to put the game out like that. I think they (Valve) tried to maximize their profits and that's why it failed miserably. Hopefully this will be back to good and the team will have a little more freedom.
Valve had nothing to do with Evolve
@gam3r You are correct. Sorry. Been a long day at work. It didn't and I can recognize when I am wrong. Thanks
Meh. Not sure what to think Evolve was awful...despite what the reviews said, one of those games where the reviews pretty much said you need to know about games journalism today
Y'all are a bunch of unforgiving brats, lol. Everyone always wants devs to make something new. Make something fresh. But when they try - y'all don't support them. If they failed, it doesn't mean they are bad. Most people learn from their lessons. No one even knows what they are coming out with but it's all "No way! Evolve sucked! DOWN WITH THEM!" Seriously?
Calls people brats... Acts like a brat That logic
You can try something new. In fact, I'd say that's what gamers really want. That's not the issue. The issue is if developers/publishers release a good game or not.
Yeah, I know, unpopular opinion and all, but left 4 dead was straight garbage. Dont know how people loved that game.
Easy, you just have bad taste
Left 4 dead was and still is fantastic.
Its not that its unpopular its just plain wrong
I can't even wrap my head around someone thing the L4D series was garbage. I know opinions and all that but that's super bizarre. Why do you think those games were garbage?
I'm not sure they can achieve Left4Dead level without the Source engine, it's what made the gameplay so good.
L4D please no Evolve or anything close to it
is Sony going to censor Spitter tits?
Loved L4D PvP back in the day and played a shit load of Evolve. Can’t wait to See what these guy drop.
Day 1 for me
Warner brothers publishing this? They even suck harder than evolve
got no use for multiplayer titles. even worse, i bet they are going the gaas route.
These guys are known for coop/multiplayer games and yet you feel the need to say “got no use for multiplayer titles”? That’d be like me saying “got no use for single player titles” in a telltale article. Pure brain damage.
God would you idiots and your gaasophobia give it a rest. And if you have no interest in multiplayer why waste your time commenting on the new game from a dev that has only made multiplayer focused games. Man these idiots with their constant toxic shit spewing 24/7 about all the things they hate. Man i wonder if they actually like anything about gaming at all.
L4D was fun, l4d2 was better.. Evolve i didn't like because it had an odd player setup. This however, right up my alley, there's so much more they can do with a l4d style game. I was disappointed there were no gators in the swamp, signs up stating do not feed the gators yet.. None in sight, and that's just a small thing compared to what else they could do. My PC will be ready, looking at this salivating for more details.
Exactly I am more than willing to try something new from this team at least they tried something different with their last game
Don't forget these guys also made Evolve *shudders* man that game was terrible.
Sounds interesting but I would rather Valve make a new L4D3 game instead
One of my favourite game series coming back to life (pun intended) and Warner Bros has a good publisher track record for me with Batman, Mad Max and the Mordor games, can't wait.
Awesome news, been wanting a Left 4 Dead 3 for years and this should be just as good as that. I'm sure this will be years away from releasing though.
The joy i had in Left for dead 1 and 2 negates Evolve completely willing to check it out.
