The Expendabros - Free Download

The Expendabros have assembled and set their sights on the forces of ruthless arms dealer Conrad Stonebanks in the forests of Eastern Europe. Battle through ten full-throttle missions set amongst the picturesque tree tops and the absurdly dangerous lumber mills teeming with enemy soldiers, excessive artillery, and inconveniently placed circular saws. Rescue your brothers in arms and play as seven different legendary soldiers – each with their own unique weapons and special attacks – with up to four players at once in local multiplayer co-op mode.

About This Game



When evil threatens the world, the world calls on Broforce - an under-funded, over-powered paramilitary organization dealing exclusively in excessive force. Brace your loins with up to four players to run ‘n’ gun as dozens of different bros and eliminate the opposing terrorist forces that threaten our way of life. Unleash scores of unique weapons and set off incredible chain reactions of fire, napalm, and limbs in the name of freedom.






  • The Broforce: Deliver your own brand of shock and awe with dozens of bros each with their own unique weaponry and special attacks designed to dispatch freedom across the world.
  • Bro-Op & Deathmatch: Battle terrorism with up to four players in cooperative mode or sever ties with your bros and face each other in several bombastic competitive modes.
  • Explosion Run: Join up with other bros to tackle these unique time attack levels under the pressure of exploding terrains and mass chaos.
  • Fully Destructible Everything: Destructible terrain opens up a slew of strategic options while the abundance of Exploding Red Barrels of Justice™ can literally level the playing field with one shot.
  • Level Editor: Design your own playground of destruction with a robust level editor and become the envy of all the other bros by sharing them online. Browse through scores of custom user created levels and complete them to rate their Bro-ness.




The following features and content are planned in future updates via Early Access. Visit the Steam Community Hub, Broforce Forums, or follow Free Lives (@Free_Lives) on Twitter for news and requests for feedback on future updates.

  • New Bros: Broforce is always looking for a few good bros to join the team. Free Lives will create a plethora of new bros and are always interested in hearing your ideas of powerful heroes that can bare the burden of being a bro.
  • New Missions: New missions will be added to the world map through development and will extend to new environments and locales.
  • Tweaks and Polish: Broforce is pretty rocking now but Free Lives will be iterating, tweaking, and polishing to see what works and what needs more time in the oven. Feedback welcome, bros!
  • Explosions 3.0: What is Broforce without better explosions? Ongoing revisions and additions to the explosions are tantamount to fulfilling Broforce's destiny.
  • Sound Design and Music: Continuing work to revise and add new music and sound design to celebrate freedom in your ears.

I played Broforce for 5 hours one day whilst listening to the US National Anthem on loop. Now every time I walk outside I'm swarmed by bald eagles with meat chunks of America's enemies on their talons, I ♥♥♥♥ and the Star Spangled Banner clearly reflects itself waving in the wind on the water surface, and for some damn reason I can't stop clapping after stopping in a vehicle.
Freedom/10 would clap for again.

THE MOST PATRIOTIC GAME YOU CAN EVER BUY
RECALLS THEMES OF TEAM AMERICA: GLOBAL POLICE
DEFEAT TERRORISTS WITH THE FORCE OF RAMBO, WILL SMITH, AND THAT CHICK WITH A GRENADE-LAUNCHER LEG
17/76 WOULD BUY. AND LOWER NUMBERS ARE MORE AMERICAN IN THIS CASE.

Seriously, though. This game is honestly a great game. It's simple, really: run through a fully-destructible map and slice, shoot, explode, and basically annihilate little men with masks. Even after they're dead, you can chop them up into little pieces. This game pays close, close attention to detail, like attack dogs running up and feasting on any corpse they see, or how the avatar in the corner is animated according to what your character is doing at the time.

However, it's not too long at this point: I've gotten a little more than two hours on here. Only reason why I don't have more is because I've played it offline too, so we gotta keep that in mind. My estimate is about 3-5. No idea. But honestly, give this game a go. It deserves to be fueled with Hamiltons.

TL;DR This is a great, pixel-violent, fully-destructible, American side-scrolling game that pays close attention to detail.

Early Access Review
Don't get my playtime wrong, we here at my apartment have spent HUNDREDS of hours in this game while we weren't able to afford internet. Hands down at the top of my list for couch co-op games. It's so good my wife even begs to play on some days (she is absolutely not a gamer and actually hates games).

A typical day off work for us here at our place:
  • Invite some bros over
  • We order pizza
  • Eat munchies
  • Start up broforce
...and before you know it -birds are chirping, sun is out, and you have to wake up in 3 hours to go to work - and you don't even care, you had a blast - this is THAT Kind of game...

The gameplay is fantastic. The campaign is a blast. Explosion runs are races that are challenging and fun. Don't even get me started on deathmatch! We all get so competitive, it's crazy. I recommend if you are new to broforce, PLEASE don't spoil the surprise of looking at all the character unlocks. We had fun calling them out and being surprised just by that element alone. Each character has different weapons, grenades and abilities - some extremely more powerful than others, but they are all evenly balanced for deathmatch.

I've even been invited to a really lame party a while back, so I whipped out my laptop from my backpack, hooked up broforce to their flatscreen - ♥♥♥♥ got intense. If you read most of these reviews, they are all trying to be funny, since the theme of the game is democracy, and liberating vietnam, and spreading love for 'murica... however they aren't being very helpful in describing the product. I think i've accurately described one of the best games on the market. This game will make your cheeks hurt from smiling and laughing all night. Expendabros is NOTHING compared to the real deal here... But if you haven't gotten it yet - this is best played with real friends, side by side. I use logitech F310's and they work perfectly. Trust me. Buy this game.

Early Access Review
It's an alpha so of course it has bugs. I have only run into them in MP so far though I think. I won't elaborate here because I have reported them in the forums and the devs are active there so they should here me. it is still highly playable and has a lot of content. The world tour mode is short right now but it looks like there is still a lot of land they are hopefully adding missions to on the map.

This is a game where a controller is not only highly recommended, I wouldn't even bother without one. It is not meant for keyboard controls in the slightest. One of the best dollar-to-fun ratio's I've ever had on steam and it's not even a final release which is pretty amazing. The $11 I paid for this was a steal. And I can't believe I am saying all of this about an early access game. One of the most fun experiences you can have playing online, especially when they get all the MP bugs our for release. The single player is also incredible. The game is hilarious and lots of action movie badasses are in it, my favs probably being Snake Plissken and Ash Williams. Game is soooo fun. Constant explosions, gunfire, and death. It is pure insanity non-stop. The controls are somewhat loosey goosey but it is not a true platformer and does not have spike traps/death traps on every inch of ground so the loose control is okay after you get used to it and get better at the game which won't take long. The game will be very frustrating at times though so you really need some good platforming action game skills. Everything is done well too. The sounds, music, new-age retro graphics, art direction, gameplay, enemies, weapons, levels, and effects are all solid. It has enough explosions and killing for the biggest action movie fan in the world (pretty much me) so you need to buy this and get in game and be a man and completely demolish entire levels with your manly instruments of pain.

Be a man, pony up the dough for this game, and add me so we can do a high five that shakes mountains like Schwartzenegger and Carl Weathers did at the beginning of Predator. Firin' rockets like a god damn boss, son.

9/10 BOSS MODE, SON!
