Broforce platformer shooter officially launches this week for Linux, Mac and Windows PC


Broforce the platforming shooter will release from Early Access with an official launch on October 15th for Linux, Mac and Windows PC.

Broforce is a send-up of the finest action films of the 80s with Die Hard, Predator, Commando, Lethal Weapon and more adapted into a a cartoonish 16-bit platformer with comically destructible environments. It’s even had a free Aliens-based update and an official The Expendables spin-off game.

Broforce’s campaign supports up to four-player co-op while there’s also a versus mode for the more competitive bros among us.

Free Lives and Broforce musician Deon van Heerden have released a five-track album entitled the Freedom EP. Those who snag Broforce on Early Access prior to its launch next week will get it for free.

“To celebrate this forthcoming triumph of electronic entertainment, Free Lives and Broforce musician Deon van Heerden have released the ultra patriotic Freedom EP – a five-track album of Broforce music including The Ballad of Rambro and the Broforce Theme. The Freedom EP is free as a thank you to Broforce Early Access owners from now until launch on October 15 after which it will be prohibitively expensive but that’s capitalism for you. Get it now for free on Steam and crank it at home, in the car, or during a hostage situation.”

Naturally Linux Game News reached out to Free Lives regarding the Linux build:

“Linux is coming. It’ll be the first time we’re porting so it won’t be on final release. We need to sort out any bugs on PC and Mac side and get a super stable build. Then we’ll do Linux.”
