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.”

BROFORCE FLEXES FREEDOM MUSCLES FOR JULY 4TH!

BROFORCE FLEXES FREEDOM MUSCLES FOR JULY 4TH!

As Americans all around the world celebrate their freedom, we have dropped the mother of all Broforce updates in celebration of the Fourth of July. The latest update introduces two new ultra patriotic bros, new democracy-spreading melee attacks, and the ultimate expression of the United State’s military might – combat flexing!

https://youtu.be/xR9k7KsbMIc

PSSSSST: Check back again in a few days, there is going to be a second installment to this update with some new levels!

The Brocketeer
A jet-packed hero from the golden age of bros, with a devastating dive bomb move!

Broheart
The Scottish-American hero of legend whose "FREEDOMMMMM!" yell strikes fear into the heart of all that stand in his way!

Melee Attacks
Dispense liberty for all with a well placed roundhouse kick or organ punch and let freedom ring with the visually impressive and always lethal chainsaw to the face.



Combat Flexing
No assault on terror would be complete without an impressive display of the bros' raw power, so we've introduced a new "flexing" feature. Now you and your bros can cease-fire, flex your biceps in the face of evil, and exercise your right to bear arms so thick your shirts tear in half.

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 Review
BroForce is the most manly, american side scrolling shooter ever made, ever.



BroForce’s story for the most part is a group of high end soldiers called “Bros” travelling through a wide variety of areas within the campaign, directed by an old white guy called the Colonel, or something of that nature. The player must fight through the destroyable world and little brown resistance, in order to reach the end, and kill satan himself, before jumping onto a helicopter with explosions behind you.



With over 20 playable “Bros” to pick from, all coming from movies or TV in the 80s or 90s, will make any action movie fan wet themselves with nostalgia. Each character has their own special attack and primary weapon, making each one a new experience. “Bros” are unlocked by rescuing a certain number of POW’s; also doubling as lives for the player. Each time a player re-spawns, a new random unlocked character is selected, changing the play style.



One major point about the game everyone should be aware of, is the player only has 1 life point. Falling too far, or catching any bullet, will kill you. Thankfully, the enemies have a slow reaction time, and like to shoot very slow bullets; fast enough to kill you, but slow enough to jump out of the way of. The enemy's range from, massive minigun guys, to dogs, to tanks, to typical tanned jungle dwellers. The ingame environment is 90% destroyable, excluding some checkpoints and the end bit.



BroForce does some things right.



The destroyable word adds more fun into the game

The multiplayer is fantastic

The characters are fun to play

BroForce doesn't take itself seriously

Each special ability is either useful or funny in some way

Maintains a proper difficulty curve

Has a level editor

Very nostalgic

You get to kill satan



BroForce does some things wrong


The levels editor is sometimes buggy

Hard to play multiplayer with randoms

Repetitive

Still buggy

Some characters are almost useless

Lacks playing cards and achievements



All in all BroForce isn't a wonderful game, that being said, it is stupid fun and is damn good. Players can kill many hours blowing things and people up, whether you're American or not. The $16.99(CAD) price tag just isn't justifiable. If its on sale, or you really want to play with friends, pick it up
