Turtle Rock Studios’s Back 4 Blood has been an incredible success to say the least, with great reviews across the board. The game has also rocketed straight up as the 4th most successful title on the XBOX Game Pass. The game also had a strong debut on PC by being the 3rd most popular game on PC Game Pass Currently, as well as reaching new heights on steam by setting a concurrent player peak at 57,883 players.
Its safe to say that this game has been a massive success for Turtle Rock Studios, as well as for Microsoft. And through services like the XBOX Game Pass, it seems likely that Back 4 Blood is going to enjoy a long period of official updates for years to come.
While Back 4 Blood is still at top 4 (or 5) games like FIFA, Minecraft and Forza Horizon 4 still dominate the charts as they always do. Destiny 2 also launched on Game Pass recently and it seems to be catching up to the game very fast as well. It has to be said again how convenient Game Pass is as a service and the amount of quality and content that you get for such a low price. It still currently remains as the best closest option we’ve ever gotten to a “Netflix for Games”.
In a climate where game prices are slowly increasing to new heights, with PlayStation hiking up the prices for their exclusives to $70 instead of the $60 we’ve been accustomed to for years, having a service like Game Pass is nothing short of a miracle where you can access a host of games both new and old at an incredibly low cost.
Microsoft has taken a massive step towards making gaming a lot more affordable, it has to be seen if Sony or Nintendo are going to follow suit in the future.
