Back 4 Blood Wiki

The Campaign is the core cooperative game mode in Back 4 Blood. The Campaign is broken up into different four acts, ten chapters and 33 missions.
With the upcoming Children of the Worm expansion the Campaign will be expanded the to a total of five acts, eleven chapters and 39 missions.

Players can either start from the beginning of an act or dive into a specific chapter or mission depending on their personal progression within the Campaign.

The Campaign can be played on four different difficulties: Recruit, Veteran, Nightmare and No Hope.
On Recruit difficulty, all missions can be accessed via checkpoints once they have been cleared at least once by the player.
The mission checkpoints on higher difficulties are far more stretched out, resulting into a greater challenge to clear an act in a playthrough alongside various other obstacles.

The mode can be played with a pre-made team, online matchmaking, solo via the Training Mode or alone by starting the game in Offline mode.
Playing the game online allows players to form teams from the following platforms:

  • PC (Epic Games Store, Microsoft Store, Steam, Xbox PC Gamepass)
  • PlayStation
  • Xbox

If players want to play with another across platforms the game offers this activity via the Crossplay"Crossplay enabled"-option.
