When the Art Team started out on the journey of creating Back 4 Blood three years ago, we felt we had a lot to live up to. The Founding members of Turtle Rock Studios and several of its employees were on the original team that created Left 4 Dead, the massively successful Zombie Shooter beloved by millions including many of us. We knew from the start that this was our shot at making something for ourselves while staying true to the company’s roots.

We wanted Back 4 Blood to be familiar enough to fans of the genre while still introducing some new elements. The theme of hope and taking the fight back to the infected instead of running, the Card system to customize and modify every run, and the Weapon attachments all help to update a classic experience. For the Art Team, the Devil Worm parasite itself and its influence on the world became our most iconic element. What it would do to human bodies, what kinds of monsters it could create, and how it could affect the environment around it were the questions we asked ourselves throughout the project.

“Making games is hard” is a common phrase you’ll hear from people who make games and being adaptable comes with the territory but the COVID-19 Pandemic was unlike anything anyone had experienced before. In the midst of full production and deadlines we had to become a fully-remote studio. As we ramped into working from home and eventually settled in for the long haul, we ended up working on the game remotely for a longer period of time than when we were in studio. Adapting to a completely new way of working took some time but like a lot of companies, we got the hang of it. Being remote had some perks too as it lead us to being able to hire on talent from outside of Southern California and as far way as Australia.

Overall, the Art Team is very proud of our little part in the making of Back 4 Blood and we’ve loved seeing people jump in and enjoy the work of everyone at the studio and its partners so far. After years of working on the game in secret and mostly apart from our friends and colleagues, seeing it finally released and in the hands of players all around the world is truly rewarding. We sincerely hope you enjoy the experience of playing Back 4 Blood and hopefully for years to come.

Have a Bloody good time.
