If you forgot about Broforce, then A) you hate freedom and B) we kind of get it. It came out two whole presidential administrations ago, hitting Steam Early Access back in 2014 with its ridiculous mix of bro puns, 80s movie references and pixelated cooperative game stock. All has been quiet on the Broforce front over the past few years as developer Free Lives has continued to make other indie hits like Genital jousting and Hornbut now the Bros are coming back for one last job called Broforce Forever.
Broforce is an action platformer where everything explodes and enemies are complete suckers for a freshly cooked turkey. You rack up “lives” by unleashing “Bros” – they’re legally separate parodies of famous action heroes, and the game insists “Bro” is a gender-neutral term: there’s Rambro, MacBrover, Indiana Brones, Ellen Ripbro, Cherry Broling, Bronan the Brobarian, and a whole crew of Expendables crossovers (known in-game as the Expendabrosobviously).
Broforce Forever promises even more new bros, new missions, and “new freedoms,” of sorts — at least according to the trailer above, in which the Bros appear to be joining forces to take down Satan himself. I mean, hey, sure.
It’s coming out in 2023, and we’re reasonably sure publisher Devolver Digital will let us know when the time is near by sending an oddly harnessed bald eagle flying over our desks shouting the stars and stripes.
