When the CEO of Microsoft comes and tells you they are all-in on gaming, you better believe it! Because it seems the much-awaited Back 4 Blood is coming to Xbox Game Pass day one. There haven’t been any official announcements about this yet, but Reddit user u/JohnTLH spotted this on the game’s pre-stream description on YouTube.
Back 4 Blood’s pre-stream was going to go live in a couple of days during its official E3 reveal. That stream has been taken down now, probably owing to the fact that its Game Pass inclusion was to be revealed at a later date. Thankfully, JohnTLH was able to grab a screenshot before the video was made private. Back 4 Blood’s arrival on Game Pass on launch certainly gives Microsoft some bragging rights over rivals. The game also stands to benefit from a strong player base, as we have seen with other live-service games on Game Pass.
Back 4 Blood is a thrilling cooperative first-person shooter from the creators of the critically acclaimed Left 4 Dead franchise. You are at the center of a war against the Ridden.
