April sounds like it is a slow month for gaming in 2022. The week of April 11th is no exception. In fact, one of the releases this week is just a DLC for a game that seems to have fallen off the radar as much as Dying Light 2 did. The other one involves cats. There is absolutely no correlation between the two. If a developer wanted to surprisingly drop a AAA release this week, that would be great.
Back 4 Blood: Tunnels of Terror DLC
Much like any major title that releases with a hundred different tiers and packages, if you bought the standard edition of Back 4 Blood, then you will have to purchase the DLC. Those who have no fiscal responsibility or earn more than minimum wage who bought the annual pass or any of the editions above the standard Back 4 Blood will get Tunnels of Terror DLC for free. Fortunately, if only one person in the group has the DLC, then the expansion is playable to anyone in their group, so there is that.
Back 4 Blood: Tunnels of Terror will have new PvE content, new warped Ridden, new cleaners that include a firefighter and Crocodile Dundee, new warped ridden, and new skins that are simply multi-colored biohazard suits. You know, because fashion is super important during a zombie apocalypse.
Back 4 Blood has hit ten million players, whether they are active players is up in the air, but they are bragging about the fact that they’ve sold 10 million games to 10 million people who thought they were getting Left 4 Dead on hard mode difficulty.
Cat Cafe Manager
Jumping to a completely different type of game: Cat Cafe Manager is a strategy simulator that has you move into a town full of crazy cat people. In Caterwaul Way, you must renovate your grandmother’s cat cafe. It looks like Harvest Moon, Stardew Valley, and the play Cats all had a baby with the Sims.
Fortunately, the game will not descend you in the mentality of a cat person as there are other things to do around Caterwaul Way. You do not only need to make friends with the cats, but you must also build and run a cafe that impresses the local townspeople who are also cat lovers. That is right, what better way to impress the town’s health inspector than to raise strays in the same place you are cooking food for human consumption.
Back 4 Blood: Tunnels of Terror releases for the PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and Xbox One on April 12th. Be ready to run out of bullets immediately trying to kill every zombie in your way while getting harassed by terrible RNG. If you are not up for constant death by the undead, then you can enter a town full of cat people on the PC or Nintendo Switch on April 14th.
