Back 4 Blood will have an open beta for anyone to take part in starting this August 12, before the general release later in October. Alongside this news, developer Turtle Rock revealed that the game would also support Nvidia's DLSS technology, have an unpcapped frame rate, and enjoy support for ultrawide resolutions right from the start.
Back 4 Blood is a cooperative and competitive FPS where teams of four players take on a rampant horde of undead "Ridden" zombie-like creatures, with a number of unique boss-like monsters among them. There are guns, melee weapons, explosives, and vehicles to help gun down these voracious enemies, and varied environments to fight through. It's the spiritual sequel to Left 4 Dead 2 that has been wanted for a long time and it's getting very close to release.
Before that happens though, anyone will be able to play the game as part of an open beta on August 12 running through August 16. Anyone who pre-orders the game will gain access to the closed beta running from August 5 through 9, so if you want to get ahead of the game and your friends, you may need to stump up some cash.
If you'd rather wait for the finished version, it launches on October 12 on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox S/X consoles.
