‘Back 4 Blood’ announces ‘Tunnels Of Terror’ expansion

It will feature new co-op activity Ridden Hives

Back 4 Blood has announced details of its first expansion, with Tunnels Of Terror launching next month.

In a Tweet shared by Back 4 Blood, it’s confirmed that the Tunnels Of Terror expansion will launch April 12 and will feature an all-new co-op activity known as Ridden Hives.

In the game, players “can explore seven different dungeons full of labyrinthine tunnels below the depths of Evansburgh that are infested with a new Ridden type, Warped Ridden.


“To claim exclusive loot and rewards only offered in Ridden Hives, players must out manoeuvre and overcome the daunting new Warped Ridden, including the landmine-setting Urchins, monstrous Shredders, and damage-dealing Rippers. The new Warped Ridden variants are also playable in PvP Swarm mode.”

Also included in the expansion will be eight exclusive skins and all-new cleaners Sharice, an axe wielding firefighter, and Heng, a tough as nails, no-nonsense restaurateur.

Tunnels Of Terror will also add new Warped Chests, Skull Totems, Legendary weapons, attatchements and over 15 new cards.

According to Turtle Rock, all players in a Back 4 Blood party will have access to the content in Tunnels Of Terror as long as at least one person has purchased it. The studio also promised that “there will be no microtransactions of any kind, cosmetic or otherwise, added to the game as part of this expansion or any future content update.”

The release of Tunnels Of Terror will also bring a free update for all players that will add a new difficulty setting called No Hope, offering “an extra level of challenge for elite players.”


In other news, job listings at Sucker Punch suggest the studio are looking to start work on a followup to 2020’s Ghost Of Tsushima.

The company is currently recruiting for a variety of roles but both listings for Senior Combat Designer and Technical Combat Designer have “must have played Ghost Of Tsushima and understand its core gameplay systems” as one of their requirements, suggesting a sequel or expansion is in the works.
