A TWITTER beef has been started – and savagely ended – between KFC and the developer behind the newly released Back 4 Blood.
For the uninitiated, Back 4 Blood is the latest title from Turtle Rock and is a four player co-op FPS that pits you against the undead.

The studio also made the fantastic Left 4 Dead series, which has the same general premise.
Basically if you’ve been waiting for Left 4 Dead 3 for years, like I have, Back 4 Blood is as close as you’re going to get right now.
The title has a decent Metacritic score too, so perhaps th4e KFC Gaming Twitter account should’ve done its homework first.
“Every masterpiece has its cheap copy,” it tweeted on Back 4 Blood’s launch day.
The statement was accompanied by a picture of the Left 4 Dead, and Back 4 Blood box art.
But Turtle Rock fired back with a savage response to the fast food giant.
“11 herbs and spices, and still no taste,” it quipped, referring, of course, to the Colonel’s secret recipe for his Kentucky fried chicken.
KFC’s tweet clocked up a little over 7K likes, but Turtle Rock’s riposte is weighing in at 75.5K likes.
It seems that even after launching its own console, KFC is still clueless about gaming.
Back 4 Blood is out now on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
