Back 4 Blood is finally getting some much-needed additions, including an offline solo mode with campaign progress. Beginning in December 2021, Turtle Rock Studio will roll out some pretty significant free updates with a new co-op mode, new character maps, updates to melee combat, and a new difficulty setting in 2022. Furthermore, it also plans to release the first Tunnels. of Terror expansion alongside two new Cleaners, Ridden, weapons, and maps in the game’s Annual Pass.
The addition of an offline solo campaign mode is important, such as: Back 4 Blood requires a constant internet connection to play (as we noted in our official review). The new offline mode even allows players to progress in the game’s campaign mode. The offline solo campaign mode comes in December, with a new seasonal holiday event, the mounted practice mode and new supply lines. This month, however, Turtle Rock Studios focuses on QoL improvements and major bug fixes.

Turtle Rock Studios will add from next year Back 4 Blood‘s first expansion Tunnels of Terror, with two more expansions later in the year. In terms of free updates, the studio will also be adding plenty for players to enjoy. These include new player and corruption cards, as well as a new co-op mode. Notably, they are also releasing a melee update – an aspect that many community members have complained about is unbalanced.
The Annual Pass also includes two new Cleaner characters, one of which appears to be wielding a firefighter’s axe. Turtle Rock Studio also shows a new Ridden in the roadmap announcement Tweet, but it looks like it’s just the silhouette of the Hocker. There will also be a new activity type with the Annual Pass, as well as exclusive skins for those who want to look fashionable during the zombie apocalypse.
