Back 4 Blood: All Characters Showcased in “The Cleaners” Brand New Trailer

Take a look at the all-new trailer that provides an in-depth look at “The Cleaners” and the zombie-like Ridden that they’re tasked with slaying.

When Left 4 Dead released back in 2008, it was the zombie-smashing, heart-pounding multiplayer experience so many gamers craved and still, to this day, is considered one of the best co-op games of all time.

Of course, with something as successful as Left 4 Dead, Turtle Rock Studios wanted to try and give back that feeling once more to new and old fans of the franchise and thus, Back 4 Blood was born.

In a brand new trailer from Turtle Rock Studios, fans get an in-depth view into the characters and personalities that make up the Ridden slaying crew known as “The Cleaners.”

Throughout the blood-soaked, infected-slaying trailer, we get to understand a little about what exactly makes the eight of these fearless characters tick as well as getting eyes on the range of Ridden variants players will take on when the game releases.

The complete team of “Cleaners” unveiled

  • Holly – Armed with a baseball bat called “Dottie” that would put Negan from The Walking Dead to shame, Holly Forrester is known for her high energy and determination. Always the shoulder to lean on, Holly offers the rest of the team much-needed guidance and support as they fight through the darkness of the apocalypse together.
  • Walker – Elijah Walker was an Army Ranger and war veteran so having this guy on your team, you’ll know that things will get taken care of. Being a man of few words, Walker demands respect and loyalty from his team when offering commands and will lead his fellow Cleaners into a well thought out and tactical battle.
  • Doc – The medic of the team, Doc has been saving lives since she stepped foot in America and now during the fight for the last of humanity, you can guarantee she’ll be at your side to bandage you up. Not only is she great at giving shots, but her headshots are also just as good.
  • Karlee – Surviving on the outskirts of Fort Hope since the Collapse, Karlee only trusted in herself. Although very little is known about her, she’d much prefer to keep it that way. Outspoken and brutally honest, Karlee’s personality can take a bit to get used to but regardless, she makes a great asset to the team.
  • Jim – A marksman by nature, Jim can snipe with incredible accuracy from his time training in the military. With amazing hunting skills from an early age, he can track down anything in his path. When returning from his time in the army, Jim’s home was destroyed by the Collapse which led him to join the kick-ass team of “The Cleaners”.
  • Hoffman – Actually enjoying the whole chaos of the breakout, you can be guaranteed that preparation is Hoffman’s middle name. When the infection initially broke, Hoffman had been taking care of his mother and when she died, all of the supplies run out leaving Hoffman to go it alone – that’s until he met the rest of the crew. Bringing skill and his good-hearted attitude to the table, he continues to be a useful part of the Cleaners.
  • Evangelo – The youngest member of the gang, Evangelo is as loyal as they come and will always put himself up for any fight. Even though he never stops talking, especially when nervous, Evangelo wants to learn and is eager to prove himself to the rest of the Cleaners.
  • Mom – The only person surprised that Mom became the voice of survivors in Finleyville was herself. She’s never shirked from a challenge and always puts the needs of others over her own. Still, for one who’s used to bucking authority, her newfound responsibility sometimes weighs uneasily on her. Although she has faith in her Cleaners, Mom has questioned other leaders’ strategies on more than one occasion, especially since the death of her son. Mom’s goal is simple, make the Ridden pay.

You can check out the entirety of the new trailer below that also offers a look at “The Ridden” in which players will be challenged with throughout Back 4 Blood. These include beastly Breakers, grotesque Ogres, screeching Snitchers, ravenous Hags, and more.

Back 4 Blood releases on October 12, 2021, for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
