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.

Early access be damned, just get this game. It's kind of like Metal Slug, if Metal Slug was a bit like Terraria and Terraria was made by a fifteen year-old in 1987 where everything blows up forever. Truly, it is the Blood Dragon of side-scrollers.

IT'S STERIODS AND MANJUICE IN A BOX....

but seriously the game is really enjoyable a mix of contra and metal slug gameplay, but the downside is that due to the explosions and bullets everywhere it will make not getting hit a difficult task. plus that you can't choose which bro you want to play as, but i still recommend it for those that love old school SHUMPS

Solid action platforming paired with varied weapon/ability designs and a great deal of explosions.

Without getting into too many details, Bro Force is arguably what this world needs. Mindless fun. Yes, it's violent. Yes, chances are you need a particular mindset to enjoy it, but the gameplay is solid and given I'm in no ways American I can still enjoy the light-hearted humour and rarely have I encountered a game where I have laughed so much at my own mistakes and countless deaths. The fairly constant updates to this game are groovy, too. and in some ways this game reminds me of my love for an oldie but goldie, Gunstar Heroes. (Which still stands as one of my all time favourites...)

Seriously, don't even be concerned about the Early Access sticker on this product. As it currently stands it has plenty of content already and is incredibly replayable. So do yourself a favour, give it a chance and become one among the bros!

Early Access Review
Contra meets Metal Slug meets Worms.

Overall it is a side-scroller, with great movements as in a platformer (on a keyboard I recommending binding Jump to the same key as Up), a button for melee attack, a button for special attack (airstrike, slow-motion, and so on), and a button for the main attack which is usually shooting in the direction the character is facing. I really like that the movements are very fluid and allow for a great variety of moves such as wall-jumping or grabbing ledges or sliding down cords.

The game is both action-packed and violent, yet subtle. The idea to switch between famous action characters with different abilities is great as it creates a lot of variety in the situations. Some characters are melee only, some characters are more suitable for picking off enemies one by one, some characters blow everything up (the levels can be destroyed, and the level design is really well thought in order to give the player solutions to progress). Each character can influence how the player approaches the next place to assault.

The levels and enemies lack some of that huge variety that the characters have, but as the updates progress there is more and more, allowing for new situations to occur and renew the fun. Although, even as it stands, the game is already very very good and well worth the investment. Easy pick-up fun that I come back to quite often. Already one of my favorite games ever.

There is a level editor, so the community will keep the game alive and with new content for a while.

It is possible to play Coop in offline (same screen) or online (might require to open ports) multiplayer. Really adds a LOT to the fun of the game. I think that two players is the sweet spot to play seriously, as if there are more players it becomes very chaotic and the levels get destroyed quickly, sometimes hindering progression.

My only complaint is that some of the early characters are dull and unoriginal in comparison to the gameplay variety and cool specials that were added later.
If you are not sure about Broforce, try out the Expandabros on Steam.

The amount of freedom within this game is so absurd that you can feel it even if you aren't american.
