Back 4 Blood will launch on Xbox Game Pass, according to stream description

We know Back 4 Blood will be shown during the Warner Bros. E3 2021 event, but according to a video description that went up early, it appears the game will launch on Xbox Game Pass on day one. The video has since been made private, but not before Redditors grabbed a screenshot of its description.

Back 4 Blood comes to us from Turtle Rock Studios, with developers who worked on the Left 4 Dead series. In fact, Back 4 Blood will serve as a spiritual successor to Left 4 Dead and will fill that void since Valve has shown no signs of revitalizing the series. We’ve known that it would come to consoles and PC, but the Game Pass detail is new.

This information has yet to be publicly confirmed by Warner Bros., Microsoft, or developer Turtle Rock Studios, but based on the video description, it seems to be true.

Microsoft has doubled down on Xbox Game Pass in recent memory, with the likes of MLB The Show 21, Outriders, and others launching on the subscription service day one. Beyond that, a slew of heavy hitters like Grand Theft Auto V, For Honor, and Red Dead Online have all made appearances on the service.

The Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment E3 event will take place on Sunday, June 13, at 5 p.m. ET and will highlight Back 4 Blood ahead of its fall release. Back 4 Blood was originally scheduled to launch this summer, but was delayed until Oct. 12. It will release for PS4, Xbox One, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.

Pikmin 4 release date

When compared to Super Mario, The Legend of Zelda, and even Metroid, the Pikmin series was never a runaway success, but that hasn't stopped Nintendo from developing new installments. And we're glad, because the Pikmin series is full of wit, charm, and originality. During the September 2022 Direct, Nintendo finally unveiled the next entry, aptly titled Pikmin 4.

This announcement came nearly a decade after the previous entry, and although we don't know much about it, we're excited it's happening. The latest installment of the oddball strategy series is bringing some new features, including a brand new Pikmin type and an adorable dog companion. Positioned as the Switch's big summer 2023 release, it has the chance to get more eyes on the series than ever before.

Cross-platform support is becoming more important in the world of video games. Multiplayer hits like Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 and Fortnite have pushed crossplay into the limelight, and now most AAA multiplayer games release with at least partial cross-platform support. Finding every cross-platform game is no easy feat, though, so we did the hard work to bring you a comprehensive list of games that support crossplay.

Unfortunately, there aren't any rules when it comes to crossplay, so each game handles the feature a little differently. To make matters more confusing, certain backward-compatible games on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X still support crossplay on the most recent hardware, even if there isn't an official release for that hardware.
