Back 4 Blood Campaign Trailer Gives A Primer On Its Blood-Soaked Story

With all the focus on Back 4 Blood’s four-player cooperative action, it’s easy to forget that there’s a story propelling the zombie-infected adventure. A new trailer touches on some of the game’s narrative beats before it launches on October 12.  The video doesn't give away a ton of plot details but it does introduce players to “Mom”, the foul-mouthed leader of the eight Cleaners they'll control. She may getting on in years but she’s clearly no pushover, and that’s good. She’s got to wrangle a group of disparate personalities from different backgrounds all united under one goal: take back a world overrun by monsters. The video also touches on the emergence and subsequent spread of the Devil Worm, the mysterious parasite responsible for transforming most of the population into mindless, flesh-eating zombies.

In addition to co-op, Back 4 Blood also features a competitive mode called Swarm that pits teams of humans and zombies against each other.

    Warner Bros. and Spotify Team Up For Batman Unburied Scripted Podcast

    Back in June, Warner Bros. and Spotify unveiled a deal to create DC scripted podcasts. Now, the first-ever scripted Spotify podcast has been revealed. Spotify has announced that Batman Unburied will be released in 2021. The new podcast will “explore the darker aspects of Bruce Wayne’s psychology.”

    The Dark Knight trilogy co-writer, David S. Goyer, wrote the story for Batman Unburied and will executive produce the podcast.

    “I’ve been a fan of narrative podcasts for some time and was looking for the right story — returning to Batman seems like the perfect opportunity,” said Goyer in a statement. “We’ll also be using the unique advantages of audio to dig into the more nightmarish members of the Dark Knight’s Rogues Gallery.”

    Additionally, Goyer’s production company, Phantom Four, is teaming up with Warner Bros.’ Blue Ribbon Content to produce the podcast. However, Spotify hasn’t announced any additional writers yet.

    Spotify’s Dawn Ostroff also shared a statement about Goyer’s involvement with the new Batman podcast.

    “David Goyer is an exceptional talent, and we can think of no better leader to leverage the infinite possibilities of podcasting to bring the nearly 300 million Spotify users around the world a Batman saga for the ages.”

    More DC scripted podcasts are also likely to follow Batman Unburied in 2021.
