The card system in Back 4 Blood will enable players to set up unique decks for more interesting combat and overall gameplay. The title will also feature a Game Director AI that’ll pick cards in response to the players’ picks. 

The ‘Corruption Cards’ available in the game are meant to increase the difficulty of the levels and improve the overall replayability experience for the players. These cards can be drawn by the Game Director at the start of a level, and apply random adjustments to the game. 

Once the Game Director picks their card, the players have to draw three cards, only one of which may be a corruption card.

Here’s a list of all the corruption cards in Back 4 Blood:
