Warner Bros. Games and Turtle Rock Studios have announced details of the next major DLC, River of Blood, for Back 4 Blood. The upcoming expansion will be available on December 6th as part of the Back 4 Blood Annual Pass, Back 4 Blood: Deluxe Edition, and Back 4 Blood: Ultimate Edition, or as a standalone purchase.
River of Blood features a new story campaign with a five-map mission in which players travel upstream, collecting supply points at certain points and confronting new enemies. To better assist the Cleaners in this mission, the expansion introduces Tala, a former cultist outcast turned Cleaner. She is accompanied by a Ridden companion named Jeff, a friendly Tallboy who can be summoned to help the team. Jeff causes ultimate havoc when whistled over by Tala or other Cleaners on her team. River of Blood also includes eight exclusive character skins and twelve exclusive weapon skins, as well as new weapons, accessories, and maps.
A PvE co-op mode will be released along with the River of Blood expansion. From December 6, 2022 to January 4, 2023, the Back 4 Blood holiday event returns. During this event, players can enjoy festive decorations in Fort Hope, listen to holiday music on the jukebox, and get holiday skins, emblems, weapon skins, and sprays. More details will follow at a later date.
River of Blood follows the previously released Children of the Worm and Terror Tunnels expansions, which are now available.
