Left 4 Dead fans have been desperate for something to come along and fill the void left behind in the series’ absence for years now, and Turtle Rock Studios – the original creators of the beloved Valve series – recently came out with a spiritual successor in Back 4 Blood. As solid sales and solid critical reception would have suggested, the game’s enjoying a really successful launch.
It was recently confirmed via the game’s official Twitter page that Back 4 Blood has been played by over 6 million players so far, which is quite an impressive figure, especially since the game’s only been out for a little over two weeks. It’s worth remembering that the shooter also launched on Xbox Game Pass day one, which surely must have provided a significant boost to those numbers (the way the game’s developers expected it to).
Back 4 Blood is available on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
