At The Game Awards 2020, a trailer for Back 4 Blood was shown. If you were watching the trailer thinking, “Huh, this looks a lot like the Left 4 Dead series” you’ll be excited to hear that yes, it’s being developed by Turtle Rock Studios, formerly Valve South. The studio was initially founded in 2002, then was acquired by Valve in 2008.

A few years later, it came back as an independent company headed by Chris Ashton and Phil Robb. Now, they’re returning to their roots with an action-packed multiplayer zombie game.
