Back 4 Blood Expansion 2 contents
The expansion will introduce a new Campaign Story to Back 4 Blood. As Act 5, it’ll directly follow on from the previous chapter’s story. The expansion also adds a new playable character in the form of “Prophet Dan”.
In addition, the expansion promises a “fierce new enemy threat”. While Turtle Rock are staying coy as to their identity – the image seems to imply some sort of cult, with the foes wearing masks. They’re also sporting a symbol of what appears to be a worm on said masks, so we assume they’re the Children of the Worm in the title.
To combat these new foes, there’ll be new weapons, new cards and more. These will include the Lockjaw rifle, and a Bear Trap. The pack will also include eight exclusive character skins, and 12 weapon skins too. These include some rather fetching 8-bit styled weapons skins for a retro shooter feel.
