Aptly self-described "rogue publisher" Devolver Digital has announced an agreement with developer Free Lives to release Broforce on Steam's Early Access come March, with full-fledged PC and console releases to follow this summer.
"When evil threatens the world, the world calls on Broforce - an under-funded, over-powered paramilitary organization dealing exclusively in excessive force," reads the game's official description. "Brace your loins with up to four players to run 'n' gun as dozens of different bros and eliminate the opposing terrorist forces that threaten our way of life. Unleash scores of unique weapons and set off incredible chain reactions of fire, napalm, and limbs in the name of freedom."
If that last paragraph didn't grow hair on your chest, take a look at the above trailer, which depicts Broforce as a retro-styled, multiplayer platformer homage to the action films of the 1980s. You've got your classic action hero archetypes, your over-the-top machismo, and an eagle made of metal flexing in front of the American flag. Short of Sylvester Stallone arm-wrestling the ghost of Ronald Reagan, this is about as bro as it gets, bro.
