Round up your chums for a spot of adorable ultraviolence, as the wonderful Gang Beasts has launched out of early access. Gang Beasts is a multiplayer arena fighting game where players will hurl each other off the tops of speeding trucks, out windows, and into industrial grinders, grabbing and grappling in physics-simulated fisticuffs. Pummel your pal into exhaustion, hoist them up, go to throw them out the arena, but they recover in time and grab onto the edge and somehow fling you out… it’s brutal and it’s funny. And it’s properly out now. (more…)
Hysterical multiplayer brawler Gang Beasts is coming to PlayStation 4 on 12th December, just in time for family arguments this holiday season.
According to the official PlayStation blog, Gang Beasts will arrive with new modes like "clumsy-yet-brutal two vs two soccer matches", a four-player co-op horde mode and various customisation options.
Gang Beasts sees players take on the role of Beef City thugs, going toe to toe in a variety of challenges (mainly: punching, kicking and humiliating each other). You can hurl your foes from fearsome heights, into fiery incinerators and hazardous machinery. Just the fun kind of violence everyone needs after a filling Christmas dinner.
In the crowded field of local multiplayer games where up to four players can compete to pummel the guts out of each other through their faces, Gang Beasts stands out. Its clumsy balloon-limbed characters wear animal costumes, its levels include a ferris wheel and the tops of several moving trucks, and its physics turn everything into a stumbling shambles. Gang Beasts is still in early access but it's already hilarious.
On Steam Gang Beasts is free to try for the weekend as a way of stress-testing its new server architecture, networking, and so on. This is a perfect opportunity to sample a game that made our list of the best local multiplayer games and our list of 12 PC games with amazing combat.
That's no joke! The way Gang Beasts lets you control your arms independently, grabbing with one while punching with the other for instance, or just clambering up a wall over a pit while somebody else clings to your foot, turns every match into a perfect slapstick movie brawl.
The free weekend has started now and will end at 9pm Pacific time on Sunday, September 24. It's 33% off for the duration as well.
Hurling your mate through a plate glass window, into a grinder, or off a speeding van is somehow even more fun in Gang Beasts [official site] than in real life. It’s a wonderfully daft multiplayer brawler about gelatinous squishmen who have your usual punches and kicks but, crucially, have a button to grip – meaning you can grab onto anything and everyone, tossing people around or holding on for dear life after someone tries to hurl you into the sea. If you haven’t played it yet, mate, round up some chums and have a go during the free trial weekend which has now started on Steam. (more…)
