Looks like Back 4 Blood and its October 12 release date is set in stone as Turtle Rock Studios have announced that the game has gone gold. This announcement is just in time for its open beta which is now live worldwide, and a PS Plus / Xbox Live subscription is not needed to participate.
There’s quite a number of things that the devs will need to address, like the overlapping audio clips that make it sound like the zombies are racist, so hopefully, they’ll be able to use the remaining time before launch to fix the outstanding issues and feedback they’ll be getting from the open beta.
Back 4 Blood is set to release on October 12, 2021 for the PS4, PS5, Xbox Series, Xbox One, and PC. Pre-orders are now available.
