A post on the
Back 4 Blood Website
discusses multiplayer support in Turtle Rock's
upcoming spiritual successor to the Left 4 Dead
series. In a move
designed to keep the community together and keep PvP from being pay-to-win,
players will have access to any additional content owned by the party leader.
Brace yourself, there's some shouting involved:
IN PVE, IF YOUR PARTY
LEADER OWNS A PAID CONTENT DROP, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO PLAY THAT CONTENT WITH THEM
— INCLUDING MAPS, GAMEPLAY AND CAMPAIGN.
No separation. No exclusion. No split.
Now, you might be thinking, “It’s cool you aren’t splitting the community,
Turtle Rock, but if you’re selling content drops, how will PvP not be
IN PVP, EVERYONE WHO BOUGHT BACK 4 BLOOD CAN GET ACCESS TO ALL ADDITIONAL PVP
CONTENT, EVEN WITHOUT PURCHASING CONTENT DROPS. PLAYERS WHO DON’T BUY THE
CONTENT DROPS CAN EARN NEW PLAYABLE CHARACTERS AND RIDDEN IN PVP, FOR FREE,
THROUGH PROGRESSION. ADDITIONALLY, ALL PVP PLAYERS HAVE ACCESS TO THE SAME CARDS
AT THE START OF EACH MATCH, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THOSE PLAYERS HAVE PURCHASED
CONTENT DROPS OR NOT.
