It’s time for humanity’s last stand! Back 4 Blood, the co-op zombie shooter from the creators of Left 4 Dead is all set to launch on Oct. 12.

Warner Bros. Games shared the official launch trailer for the highly-anticipated Turtle Rock Studios’ game for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC ahead of its early access release.

The thrilling cooperative first-person zombie shooter horror game puts players at the center of a war against the Ridden. 

“These once-human hosts of a deadly parasite have turned into terrifying creatures bent on devouring what remains of civilization. With humanity’s extinction on the line, it’s up to you and your friends to take the fight to the enemy, eradicate the Ridden, and reclaim the world.”

The brand new trailer offers a look at the game’s cooperative campaign, enemies, protagonists, and head-to-head competitive PvP Swarm mode, in which one side takes on the role of the Cleaners and the other as the Ridden. Both sides come with unique weapons, abilities, and specialties.

The game will support up to four players in online cooperative modes and eight players in PvP (player versus player) Swarm mode.

Back 4 Blood will be available in a Standard Edition ($59.99), Deluxe Edition ($89.99) and Ultimate Edition ($99.99).

Players who purchase either the Deluxe Edition or Ultimate Edition of the game will be able to jump in a few days early starting Oct. 7, at 4:00 a.m. PT for Xbox, Windows and Playstation, and 8:00 a.m. PT for Steam and EGS. 

The Deluxe Edition also includes the Annual Pass, which grants access to three upcoming DLC packs, while the Ultimate Edition throws in the Battle Hardened Skin Pack as well as a Rare Banner, Emblem, Spray, and Title.
