The "Back 4 Blood" beta is opening soon! Interested players can get a chance to join the intense co-op zombie shooter game two months before its release date by signing up for the Early Access Beta program.

"Back 4 Blood" is seriously living up to the expectations left behind by "Left 4 Dead." Fans were delighted to see the "Back 4 Blood" trailer, which featured a dynamic gameplay, modernized shooting mechanics, and four-player coop systems. "Back 4 Blood" also retained some "Left 4 Dead" key features, like its monsters and "Endless Swarm" game mode.

To ensure the game's success, developers requested help in testing "Back 4 Blood" servers and systems before its official launch on October 12. Beta programs have been announced for excited gamers who want to try "Back 4 Blood."

According to Windows Central, Beta Programs are available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. Cross-gen and cross-play will be supported during beta.

For most games, progress made during beta will carry over into the full game. Some beta players also get unique cosmetics or early access freebies to commemorate their contribution. "Back 4 Blood" developers neither confirmed nor denied these notions.

There are two available Beta programs for interested players to sign up:

  • Early Access Beta: From August 5, 3 PM ET to August 9, 3 PM ET
  • Open Beta: From August 12, 3 PM ET to August 16, 3 PM ET
