Gang Beasts

There's a folder on my PlayStation 4 that's reserved for the really good stuff. It's where Towerfall Ascension sits alongside Nidhogg and the brilliant compilation that is Sportsfriends. It's where I head when friends are around, when I want a guaranteed good time, and ever since creating it there's been a little slot reserved for Gang Beasts, that party game par excellence. I've been waiting on it a fairly long time.

You've already played Gang Beasts, I'm sure. Whether that's at one of the many game events where it's been a fixture since 2014, where you'd follow the sound of laughter until you found four people huddled around a monitor knocking merry hell out of one another. Maybe you've already got it on PC where it's been out in Early Access for a good few years. You likely know the deal already; pissed-up jelly babies go at each other across a series of stages until only one stands as the winner.

Now it's finally out on PlayStation 4, familiarity hasn't really dimmed its brilliance. Played with friends, Gang Beasts is a drunken hug of a game in which you're fighting the controls as much as you are each other. You're never really in charge of a fight in Gang Beasts - don't expect this particular fighting game to turn up at EVO, or to be the subject of in-depth YouTube tutorials - and instead my only advice is that you give yourself over to its chaos.

Gang Beasts

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.
