Did we miss something on diversity?

Learn to slay zombies and cooperate with strangers.

Better to keep the young ones shooting at zombies in a video game, so they can let go of that aggression in a healthy constructive manner. This game is a wondeful romp through a zombie infested pennsylvania town, and shows team collaboration with elimnating potential violent threats from impacting what remains of society. Lots of great role models for young ones to aspire to, with a diverse cast of characters/cosmetics to allow players to have a unique experience each time they play.

Exaggeration of blood

This game is great for zombie lovers and I have not seen a good zombie game since dying light. Now this is the thing about this game, the game is called “Back 4 BLOOD” so the creators of the game exaggerate how much blood there is when you kill a zombie. The language is fine for anyone 10 or older because curse words are very unusual to find in this game. The zombies can be scary for kids under 11 but this game is not any different from dying light and dead by daylight. Although there is a lot of blood and gore it’s nothing an average 11 year old or higher hasn’t seen before.
