Success Through Collaboration on Back 4 Blood

Volta’s work with Turtle Rock Studios on the iconic Back 4 Blood was the perfect showcase for our technical abilities, passionate creativity and dedication to delivering top-tier quality. Beginning in early 2020, the partnership helped solidify Volta’s reputation as experts in the realm of first-person shooter games.

The Challenge

When Turtle Rock Studios reached out to Volta initially, it was for help with a specific, limited set of aspects of Back 4 Blood. But the collaboration quickly evolved into a multi-year partnership that involved an ever-increasing number of services – and continues to this day.

The Solution

From the outset, VOLTA employed a comprehensive approach designed to optimise every aspect of the playing experience on Back 4 Blood. We began with prop work, leveraging Turtle Rock’s custom engine to ensure unbeatable standards were reached consistently, and as the project evolved shifted focus to crafting hundreds of unique skins to bring the game’s characters to life. We also played a pivotal role in shaping Back 4 Blood 's weapon designs and vehicle modelling, and as work progressed took on a range of environment-related tasks.

The project stands as a testament to the power of partnership with Keywords. Across every genre and platform, and regardless of project-size and timeline, our 360 expertise and unparalleled experience in the industry make us the perfect collaborator for clients who need quality they can trust delivered on budget and schedule each and every time.
