Today, during the Summer Game Fest kickoff live broadcast, US-based developer Turtle Rock revealed some brand new footage for their much-anticipated 4-player co-op shooter, Back 4 Blood.
Specifically, the new teaser trailer pulled back the blood-drenched curtain on a never-before-seen boss that will feature in the upcoming team-based first-person shooter. Go ahead and feast your eyes on said footage down below:
As you can see, the new boss turns up near the end of the teaser and looks like a hulking leviathan-type enemy. It’ll likely take a small army to bring down, or a smaller well-coordinated team of zombie-slaying badasses. Long story short, you’ll probably need a bigger gun. In fact, you may just need a tank. Like, seriously.
In addition to the new trailer, Geoff Keighley also confirmed that an open beta for the game will drop on August 12.
For those unaware, Back 4 Blood is from the creators of the critically acclaimed and commercially successful Left 4 Dead zombie-killing franchise. In other words, Turtle Rock is a long-established developer that has a proven track record crafting excellent team-based co-op shooter experiences. And Back 4 Blood looks like it’s shaping up to be the studio’s next big smash hit.
