River of Blood is the latest DLC announced for Turtle Rock’s Zombie shooter, Back 4 Blood. It follows in the footsteps of the previously released Children of the Worm and Tunnels of Terror expansions that released earlier in the year.

The Back 4 Blood expansion is set for release on 6th December across all platforms and is included if you purchased any of these versions of the game: Back 4 Blood Annual PassBack 4 Blood: Deluxe EditionBack 4 Blood: Ultimate Edition. Of course, you’ll be able to pick up the DLC as a standalone purchase when its released.

The River of Blood content will feature a brand-new story campaign that looks to incorporate five maps within its mission. Players are tasked with travelling upriver, stopping at different points to collect supplies and take on new enemies. A new character Tala, a former cultist outcast now turned Cleaner will be the guide throughout the campaign and is accompanied by a Ridden named Jeff, a friendly Tallboy that can be summoned to assist the team.

Also included in the expansion is a variety of extras including: eight exclusive character skins and 12 exclusive weapon skins, along with new weapons, accessories, and cards.

Away from the River of Blood announcement, Warner Bros has also confirmed that Trial of the Worm will be available as a free update for all Back 4 Blood owners. This co-op mode will release alongside the River of Blood expansion, and lets players determine their path down a four-map chain. Players can add Corruption Modifiers or choose the more vigorous paths to increase difficulty and boost the amount of Supply Points rewarded.

If that wasn’t enough, the Back 4 Blood Holiday Event returns and players can enjoy festive decorations in Fort Hope, listen to holiday music at the jukebox, and grab holiday skins, emblems, weapon skins, and sprays. This will again take place on 6th December and runs all the way to 4th January 2023.

That’s a substantial update to the zombie shooter as it goes from strength to strength. Let’s hope the latest expansion can keep the momentum going.

Back 4 Blood is out now for PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC. The River of Blood DLC releases 6th December.
