Back 4 Blood Catch All

Early Access has been open for a bit more than 24 hours now! There’s just a few days before full release for standard and Game Pass, so go deluxe or ultimate if you’d like to play now and bundle the DLCs that will start rolling out later.

Generally it’s much more polished than the beta. The bots aren’t quite terrible, and folks have been quite impressed with much of the campaign levels that weren’t in the beta. There’s still some real odd choices such as not earning xp / supply points in solo mode.

Me? I’ll play campaign eventually, but for the foreseeable future I’m just playing Swarm PvP. How is it? Fun, but it’s like no one actually thought about how, for instance, matches are supposed to work. If, as an example, your team wins round 1 and the other side quits, the match ends and you get no xp / supply points. (Please vote for this as being a bug.) Best change: there is a way to play your party against some other party, so we may see a competitive scene after all.

Well that's an easy pass then. Some of us can't play online games you can't pause due to kids.

Yea this is just too much of a buggy mess with missing content to justify paying for it.

If it wasn't going on gamepass this would end up being a hard pass. Which sucks because it was one of my more anticipated titles for the year.

The upside is that everything is already unlocked in solo mode, so there's no need to earn xp / supply points.

Sadly, I'm definitely in wait and see mode on this, and won't be playing it on Tuesday.

Enough people bitched about that one:

❗ Attention Cleaners! ❗

We have heard your frustrations about progression in solo mode and are discussing ways to address the issue. Thank you for your patience and feedback at this time - we'll have more news as we strategize on potential ways to make it happen.

Playing on Xbox. Played a couple of rounds last night as part of the campaign and overall enjoyed it.

I will be on this evening, via GamePass, to check out some SP and MP.

I just played a few rounds and had a really good time. It's a lot more fast-paced and frantic than L4D and I'm fine with that. I kinda like the cutscenes, and I'm on the fence about the whole card system. I feel like it's something that may appeal more to people who will spend more time than me on the game but that's ok.

Amoebic#3988 is my B4B code!

I don’t play coop/campaign, but anyone who wants to learn and enjoy Swarm, I’m [GWJ] Keithustus through Steam or [GWJ] Keithustus#4934 for crossplay.

Played briefly last night with a friend and a couple n00bs who clearly did not play the demo, Left4Dead 1 or 2, possibly any game, ever, and may not have had working thumbs based on their in-game performance. Still a good time, though, and I ran through part of the tutorial for the hell of it, and the bots are actually playably decent and it's no longer going to be an utter death sentence once someone drops. That alone makes this much, much better to play, as you knew you were screwed in the demo if you started losing human players to bots.

I'm in. Feel free to add me on steam, ill figure out my cross play when i get home.

Trashie on Xbox Live and Trashie#1981 on crossplay. Generally enjoying it. Playing on Recruit right now cuz Veteran is HARD. I'm excited by the number of maps?

Pet peeve: Picking up a scope, or a gun with a scope, that has magnification. On xbox it is hard as hell to to use those and you can't seem take the damned thing off unless you have another. I know, hip fire, but still.

Not removing attachments is a balance decision that has been complained about and defended (everyone would just have all the best weapons and attachments) since alpha, almost a year ago. To make optics easier to use though go to OPTIONS > MOUSE AND KEYBOARD > adjust “Aim Down Sights Low Zoom Sensitivity Multiplier” and “ Aim Down Sights High Zoom Sensitivity Multiplier” which apply to, IIRC, no sights and sights with zoom. Those options are on console, yes? Maybe just a different tab not called that.

Had a good time with Dakhath and Delbin (sp?) on a handful of maps last night! Finally got through the first act.

Steam handle in sig, it's Cartoonin99#5121 for crossplay.

I'm quite interested in doing some campaign, crossplay ID is "Laarrs#5858"

I had fun playing a few games last night with other goodjers. My crossplay ID is NeutrinoVe#3322 and I'll look up those of you that have posted yours.
