‘Back 4 Blood’ won’t have offline playing mode at launch

Turtle Rock Studios’ upcoming title Back 4 Blood won’t have an offline mode for the players when it releases later this year.

Even the single-player mode in Back 4 Blood will require you to have an online connection.

‘Back 4 Blood’ pre-release details: What to expect?

The developer has recently confirmed that Back 4 Blood won’t have any offline mode. At least not until the main official release period.

Whether you play in multiplayer or single-player settings, you will have to have an internet connection.

The successor to Left 4 Dead, the co-op sequel, recently appeared during the E3 2021 event. There too, the topic didn’t address offline mode.

To clarify the doubts, a user asked Turtle Rock Studios on Twitter regarding playing with AI teammates offline.

Replying to the query, the studio said:

“We’re looking into ways we could support offline for the future, but you will need an internet connection to play at launch.”

The FAQ page of the game explains that it will support up to four players in co-op and up to eight players in PvP mode. Plus, you can also play it solo with NPC teammates.

Another thing to note is that, unlike Left 4 Dead, Back 4 Blood won’t support playing it on split-screen.

Executive producer Matt O’Driscoll said that the sequel wouldn’t have couch co-op at least at launch.

A few days back, the developer also revealed the eight playable “cleaners” so that you and your friends will have options to choose from them.

Upcoming video games of 2021

Meanwhile, there are many other fresh releases as well scheduled to arrive later in this calendar.

Die-hard gamers will have tons of options to choose from when it comes to AAA heavyweights.

In the highly-awaited potential blockbusters, there will be names like Halo Infinite and Dying Light 2.

A new Call of Duty installment, No More Heroes 3, Deathloop, Far Cry 6, and Battlefield 2042, is also on the list.

The extensive line-up expands even further with the likes of New World, Scarlet Nexus, Stray, and Kena: Bridge of Spirits.

Cyber Shadow, Shadow Warrior 3, Horizon Forbidden West, and Psychonauts 2 are other crucial launches.

Some of the other recently announced projects making a debut soon are The Day Before, Glitchpunk, and Etched Memories. The latter will be an exciting game to watch out for the players. It’s because the campaign will feature a cat as the main protagonist.

Coming onto Back 4 Blood, again, it will be launched on October 12 for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
