Publisher Devolver Digital released a new trailer for Broforce, which features the game’s level editor. It comes with the usual over-the-top machismo, so prepared to be bro’d.
This clip wants to illustrate the ease of use of the editor. Levels come with certain templates to depict their theme, after which building blocks can be placed.
Building is as easy as dragging a button around for several game compartments. This includes both outside scenery as well as the inside of buildings.
Enemies, traps, exploding materials and so on can be put down at will as well. Don’t forget to put down some cages to rescue bros and put up a checkpoint or two.
After the level is created, it’s possible to test it, to see if it’s actually beatable. Creations can be shared through Steam Workshop.
Broforce is a side-scrolling run and gun game that uses known pop culture action heroes as its protagonists. Sylvester Stallone, Chuck Norris or Bruce Willis can be found in some form in the game.
Each hero, called a bro, has their own set of skills. For instance, some use flame throwers and call in airstrikes, while others prefer a melee weapon and swift moves to kill terrorists.
Going further on this comedic action hero model, the game spawned its own offshoot for The Expendables 3. Expendabros, as that spinoff is called, was released as a free-to-play game and features quite a few levels in the same style as the original.
Broforce has been on Steam via Early Access since March. It’s said that the game will head to full release next year.
