PC Gamer detailed the specific graphics settings that PC players should use if they want a very smooth (and visually stunning) "Back 4 Blood" experience. 

According to their gameplay testing, most PC gamers with relatively modern hardware could turn the game's graphics settings up to at least the "High" preset for a great balance between performance and visuals. 

Here are the specific settings they went with: 

  • Graphics preset: HIGH, as mentioned
  • Upscaling: AMD graphics card owners should turn on FidelityFX Super Resolution to either Ultra Quality or Quality modes. As for NVIDIA GPU owners, you should turn on DLSS Quality mode. 
  • DX12 should be picked instead of DX11 if you have the option. 
  • Chromatic aberration should be turned OFF for maximum performance gains. 

On their test rig, which ran an AMD Ryzen 7 5800X, 32GB of RAM, and an RX 6900 XT, "Back 4 Blood" never dipped below 70 FPS minimum at 4K.

All in all, PCGamesN gave "Back 4 Blood" a score of 8. 

TechRadar, on the other hand, also lauded the game for capturing what a lot of players loved about the original "Left 4 Dead" series, all while keeping it updated for the modern gaming industry with fresh mechanics. 

As per their review, the game's co-op is a fantastic implementation with its introduction of a card system that makes players feel like they "own" the character they're playing as. 

Lastly, "Back 4 Blood" is not made for solo players as its difficulty, while offering great replay value, can prove punishing a single player-the rating: 5.5 out of 6 stars.
