Check out new Back 4 Blood gameplay in official card system trailer

Back 4 Blood, the upcoming first-person co-op zombie shooter, gets a new trailer breaking down its rogue-lite feature, the Card System, which adds cool twists to each gameplay session. Check it out for a look at what to expect and learn about the game’s adaptive A.I. known as the Game Director.

In Back 4 Blood, the Game Director monitors your actions, health, and choices. The Game Director then responds accordingly by changing environmental conditions, adding obstacles, and unleashing special Ridden mutations through Card System modifiers known as Corruption Cards. You can change up the gameplay by utilizing specific cards to strategize against the Game Director, from amplifying equipment to reloading weapons.

Back 4 Blood launches on October 12, 2021, for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC.
