As an added bonus, players will see Trial of the Worm as a free update for all Back 4 Blood players. Trial of the Worm is a cooperative PvE mode where players determine their path down a four-map chain while earning Supply Points along the way. Players can add Corruption Modifiers or choose the more vigorous paths to increase the difficulty and boost the amount of Supply Points rewarded.

Finally, the game will see its Holiday Event return on December 6th, 2022, and run until January 4th, 2023. Fort Hope is covered in festive decorations, and players can enjoy holiday music at the jukebox and obtain unique holiday-themed items (skins, emblems, weapon skins, and sprays). Turtle Rock mentions that further details for the Back 4 Blood Holiday event will come at a later time.

We’ll continue to update as more information on Back 4 Blood is released, including DLC, events, content updates, and more. Back 4 Blood is available now on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series, Xbox One, and PC via Steam, the Windows 10 Store, and the Epic Games Store.
