What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Broforce currently has the first part of the campaign with over a dozen bros to take down a slew of enemies already in place. Online and local mulitplayer modes, deathmatch, explosion runs, a level editor, and custom fan made levels are all function with tweaks and polish planned during the course of Early Access development.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Broforce will be priced the same during Early Access and full release.”

Broforce Update: The Brodator Unleashed!

A small update this month, with tons of bug fixes, and an awesome new bro.

You may have noticed a quietening down from us in terms of development news updates. This is a trend that will continue for the next month or two, because we are working on something big for you guys that we're keeping a surprise for launch! So please bear with us and know that we're as hard at work as always, we just have less to show you while most of the team is focused on the epic new thing we can't discuss ;)

BRODATOR
He might be an ugly son of a b*tch, but the enemy of the enemy of Freedom is a friend.
Terror is the ultimate prey for the ultimate hunter.

OTHER NEW STUFF:
You can now create GIFS easily in game by pressing "Ctrl-Shift-G". Move the box over what you want to record, press "G" to begin recording and "G" to stop recording.

BUG FIXES & TWEAKS!
Lots of them. Check out the Beta Changelog on our website for deets.

P.S.
Broforce was the 12th highest rated game on Steam at the end of April! Thank you bros for all the love!

“....the feel of the moment-to-moment mayhem is just beautiful...”

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.

The gameplay, sound and voice are amazing!
It's like Cortex Commbat + Contra + most awesome heroes from USA action films. 10/10
Moreover, if you have a good company to play together on one screen, it's even better! It's just tons of fun&joy! 11/10

That single patchlog should be enough to convince you on buying this awesome piece of software.

Early Access Review
In a nutshell, Broforce is Contra with a destructible environment. Throughout every level, you are one bullet away from death, but the run n' gun gameplay, along with the large variety of weapons and characters to play as, will ensure that you have a multitude of ways to complete your objective. The game takes its inspiration from various action movies, so you can expect to play as Will Smith from MIB, Ripley from the Alien series, or even Chuck Norris from Walker, Texas Ranger! This is the perfect game to play with a group of friends (up to 4 player online and local co-op), and if you get tired of the main story or deathmatch, there is a level editor to create your own masterpiece. This game is simply too much fun to pass up.

This game is just straight up fun. There is nothing else too it, except that it is fun. I suggest buying this game, hooking up a bunch of xbox controllers and playing with some friends considering the multiplayer mode never works (it's in alpha so ill cut it some slack). This game is definitely worth the $15 price tag, considering you can play as F*$%@#G PREDATOR!!!
