Broforce Finally Coming To Steam Early Access
According to the developers at indie dev studio Free Lives, they are all set to bring their action shooter Broforce to Steam Early Access on Monday, April 7th. It will be available at a price point of 14.99. If you can't wait until Monday, you can get access to the beta version by pre-ordering the game through their website here.
Broforce has already won several awards including being a SXSW Gamer's Voice Nominee 2014, Minecon Indie Showcase 2013, Amaze Official Selection 2014, and Grimmy Best Early Access Game 2013. We actually did a preview of the game in its alpha format last year, which you can check out below. You can also listen to our interview with Free Lives here.
Here is the description of the game from the developer's website:
Broforce is a co-operative patriotism simulation. You play as 80's and 90's action heroes waging war against terror in almost entirely destructible nostalgic settings.
While superficially a run 'n gun in the vein of Metal Slug, Broforce's reactive environment encourages tactical play. Each bro out of the 15 the game currently features (with many more to come) has distinctive attacks and special abilities, and, aside from spraying terrorist blood across the landscape, mastering all these abilities is one of Broforce's core pleasures.
In Broforce death is instant and often surprising, but this is balanced by the incompetence of the enemy. The explosions (which are numerous) often result in unpredictable chain reactions, but this shouldn't discourage you from permanently holding down your trigger finger. Yelling "'Murica!" while you do so is optional.
