Back 4 Blood Children of the Worm lets you play as a deranged prophet

The Back 4 Blood Children of the Worm launch trailer introduces Dan the Prophet, a crazed Irishman with an axe to grind against the cult

Back 4 Blood Children of the Worm: Prophet Dan smiles in the light of an interrogation room, he has a handlebar moustache and one eye that glows pale blue.

The Back 4 Blood Children of the Worm release date is almost upon us, and there’s a new trailer that offers the best look yet at what we’ll be facing in Act 5 of the zombie co-op game. The trailer introduces Prophet Dan, a moustache-wearing, shotgun-toting Irish preacher who wants to rescue his flock from the deranged cult that’s actively working to help spread the Ridden virus.

Prophet Dan is a new playable cleaner, and he’s hoping to break into cult central to free his followers, who the cult has captured. They probably have some nasty plans in store, so it’ll be up to Dan and the other cleaners to spring them loose – and it looks like we’ll be facing some fresh opposition in the process.

Snipers with laser sights are positioned on the roof of the cult’s compound, and inside, there are new kinds of half-crazed enemies, including a beefy brawler-type enemy armed with iron claws. The Children of the Worm are cool with the Ridden, too, so expect to run into pockets of the undead during your stay.

You’ll also want to be on the lookout for bear traps on your way in.

Children of the Worm adds a new story campaign, new weapons, new accessories, and new cards to build into your deck. There are also eight new character skins and 12 new weapon skins included in the expansion.

You’ll be able to take the fight to the cult when Children of the Worm launches tomorrow, August 30.
