The announcement of Back 4 Blood was enthusiastically received by Left 4 Dead fans, who expected the game to become popular after its launch. Just in case there was any doubt that those of us screaming for a brand new Left 4 Useless or Turtle Rocks religious successor reached their peaks on the final weekend of the beta break at just under 100,000 simultaneous players.
