Leak Suggests Back 4 Blood May Be Coming To Xbox Game Pass At Launch

Back 4 Blood may be headed to Xbox Game Pass according to a new leak. Unfortunately the leak was courtesy of Warner Bros. itself, as the information was mentioned in the description of a livestream video showcasing the game’s PvP mode.

Redditor EricKillMongerz spotted the news (via VG247) which was mentioned towards the end of the description. It said that the game will come to Game Pass on day one for both, consoles as well as PC. The video has now been made private, with the description completely removed.

“Back 4 Blood will be coming to Xbox Game Pass at launch vis Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One, as well as Windows 10 PC,” it said. The news is probably set to be officially announced before the Microsoft and Bethesda showcase, after which we’ll see the Back 4 Blood PvP livestream.

Late last month, Turtle Rock Studios dropped a trailer that showed off the new playable characters coming to the game along with their abilities. Eight Cleaners were revealed in all, each with their own unique bonuses and perks. For instance, Holly’s ability to recover stamina with kills and increase team damage, resistance, and stamina; and Hoffman’s extra offensive slot, increased team ammo, and ability to make enemies drop ammo.

Back 4 Blood was initially scheduled for a June release on the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC, but saw a major delay, pushing it back to October 12, 2021. No reason was given for the delay, except that Turtle Rock wanted to make Back 4 Blood “the best game it can possibly be”. No doubt, the Covid-19 pandemic and resultant lockdown played a major role in this delay, as with many others.

There’s not much else we know about the game, except that all microtransactions will be cosmetic only. “We know we want to have ongoing content after launch, but we’re still figuring out what that would be,” said co-founder and design director Chris Ashton. “If we do implement microtransactions, it would be for cosmetics only.”

Players may receive some character and weapon skins, different gestures and emotions, and other stuff like this, extensively used in online and cooperative games.
