Free Back 4 Blood Skins Are Available To All Xbox Game Pass Subscribers

Turtle Rock Studios’ spiritual successor to the Left 4 Dead franchise, Back 4 Blood, is now available. Xbox is betting on Back 4 Blood’s success as well, having convinced publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment to add the co-op FPS to Xbox Game Pass.

That does not appear to be the end of Xbox and Warner Bros.’ collaboration. Xbox Game Pass confirmed on Friday that an exclusive Back 4 Blood cosmetics bundle would be available soon.

The Back 4 Blood Battle-Hardened Bundle is a cosmetics package available only to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers. While “slaying the apocalypse is cool,” “slaying it in style is cooler,” according to the official Xbox Game Pass Twitter account. Subscribers can access the bundle through the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Perks gallery on PC and Xbox, as well as the Xbox Game Pass mobile app.

Back 4 Blood’s Battle-Hardened Bundle includes four different character skins as well as four different weapon skins. The skins are Evangelo, Walker, Holly, and Mom for the game’s default four characters. Each of their skins has a better appearance than the character’s base outfit, as each character gains body armor or other armored gear to appear more prepared for the approaching storm.

Back 4 Blood’s most popular weapon is the M4 Carbine assault rifle, but there are also skins for the RPK light machine gun, the Uzi submachine gun, and the 870 Express shotgun. In nature, these skins are all fairly uniform. They give the weapon a camouflaged appearance of green, brown, and both light and dark colors. They will also upgrade the gun with a more tactical component, such as a new barrel, stock, magazine, or other accessory. These are purely cosmetic modifications.


Notably, the four Battle-Hardened skins appear to be the same across all platforms as those included with the Back 4 Blood Ultimate Edition. It’s unclear whether the Back 4 Blood Fort Hope Elite Weapon Skins pack will be released on other platforms or if either DLC pack will be released separately.

It’s a nice little bonus for Back 4 Blood players who are currently using Xbox Game Pass on PC or console. It’s also a great way to remind Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers that Back 4 Blood is now free with a subscription. Back 4 Blood is a great deal for Xbox Game Pass subscribers, considering it’s a full-priced game otherwise.
