With the Back 4 Blood Early Access period beginning for those who’ve purchased the Deluxe and Ultimate Editions of the upcoming title, players are now able to unlock more playable characters to use other than the starting five for the first time.

Back in August, many players were able to get their first hands-on look at the first-person zombie shooter, but did not get the chance to play as any survivor characters are then the five already unlocked. For those eager to meet more of the Cleaners now at launch, here’s how to unlock characters in Back 4 Blood.

In Back 4 Blood, players will all start out with the starting five Cleaners from the open beta — Hoffman, Walker, Mom, Holly, and Evangelo.

To unlock the other three characters, Doc, Karlee and Jim, all players have to do is beat the final mission in “Act 1: The Devil’s Return” — “The Crossing.”

As players who have played this finale chapter in the past can attest to, The Crossing is definitely no slouch as the Cleaners will encounter a never-ending horde, have to cross the bridge in a panic, and successfully plant two explosives to blow up a cruise ship.

Thankfully, it appears Turtle Rock Studios has made it well worth players’ sacrifices as in a gesture of good faith, you will have the game’s full arsenal of Cleaners at your disposal.
