WWB 6 FIRST CONTACT

The Broforce world has been turned downside up by the arrival of screeching acidic slime beats from outer space. Your theme for this Weekend Workshop Brodown is:

FIRST CONTACT

Give everyone a brosome first reveal of the unwelcome interstellar freedom smashers eg. You're crawling under an enemy bunker when you spot an ominous shape lurking in the dark; or You've just crushed 54 terrorists and you come across a strange pulsating egg...
Make it creepy. Make it liberating. Make it yours.

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.

THROW AWAY THAT FRAPPUCCINO!! BURN THOSE DESIGNER JEANS!! TURN OFF THAT LADY GAGA!!

GRILL UP A BIG STEAK!! FLEX THOSE PECS!! SHAVE THAT SQUARE JAW WITH A KNIFE!! LIGHT THAT CIGAR WITH A FLAME THROWER!!

IT'S TIME TO LIBERATE!!!!!!!

I laughed my butt off playing this game...again...and again. Even dying is funny.

Being a huge fan of good ol' 2D games and growing up all the way through the 80s, I had to get this game. I've only played by myself and haven't messed with all the other features or even tried building a level yet but I highly recommend this for fun time mega carnage.

This game proves that even with all the hi-res graphics, thick plots, and over-the-top sex and violence in other games, there's still a place for "8-bit" low-res ACTION!!!!

Early Access Review
Broforce is an amusing dose of satirical patriotism with an added blast from the past appearance from over 10 action hero characters from the 1980's and beyond. The gun play is fast, colorful, with explosions and blood flying across your screen like the 4th of July fireworks show. The game has expanded a lot since it's initial appearance on steam, so it gets a plus for steady developer support. IMO this game works best with friends, where Neo, Rambo, Robocop and more can fight side by side in the middle of the Vietnamese jungles. Alone the game can begin to bore you, so consider that when going to purchase. The game is not a very demanding one graphically, so most current pc users should be able to play with no issue. Remember the game is still not finished so expect features to be tweaked and others possibly added.

Overall this game is a barrel of laughs with friends and provides a lot of value. Get used to the electric guitars playing everytime you complete a mission!

If you enjoy the days of Contra and Super Mario Bros there really is no better place to turn than Broforce. This game is an intense ride of nostalgia, guns, smoke and explosions! With content continuously being added this is certainly an example of a developer doing Early Access right.

Tons of "Bros" to choose from of both the male and female variety. The campaign and level editor supplied workshop levels will keep you entertained for hours.

Best part is that it includes local coop/competition that will have you and your friends roaring for hours!

It's 2015 - the better the gameplay the worse the graphics.
None the less one of the best games I own.

Early Access Review
Will Smith's best performance to date. The casting director of this movie knew what they were doing.

In all seriousness: I had way more fun with this than I anticipated. The gameplay is top notch, starting off relatively easy and simple, and working its way up to levels that you will die repeatedly, happy to do so, only to come back knowing that you can do it better this time.

Add to that Steam Workshop support and a level creator, and this game is already chock-full of content. The devs also release frequent and meaningful updates and maintain a presence on the forums.

tl;dr 9/10 with rice

Extremely fun game full of constant explosions, blood and awesomeness in general. Characters (called bros) are varied and each one has a different playstile offering a lot of enemy-exploding opportunities. Also it's updated regularly, and the devs are quite awesome people in general.

If you are unsure about buying it, try the expendabros, which is a free spin-off that works as a demo.

Definitely one of the few great early access games.
