Back 4 Blood is here with the campaign mode

The winter update consists of the offline mode, which is the highlighted addition. Fans were waiting for it since the official release of Back 4 Blood in October, and it is here now.

As the name suggests, the campaign mode will allow players to enjoy the zombie shooter solo. It implies that they won’t need to be connected to the internet to start a match or go on a killing streak with other users.

Moreover, the new update also brings latest supply lines, which are the Roving Merchants. They are to be added with a time-bound track that will provide brand new rewards. Players can spend their supply points on them.

Plus, the Roving Merchants Supply Lines will also include a new card type called “Burn Cards.” They can be played in each of the safe rooms, in order to receive temporary effects such as instant healing, increased resistances, and currency boosts, among other things.
