The hilarious multiplayer brawler Gang Beasts is finally here, and will be released on PS4 on December 12th. I have had the pleasure of playing this at many EGX’s over the years and have had lots of fun whilst doing so. It’s being released on the same day as PUBG comes out on the Xbox One, which is probably no coincidence!
Gang Beasts will launch with a whole glut of customisation options and several new modes, including clumsy-yet-brutal 2 vs. 2 soccer matches, and a cooperative mode where up to 4 players battle against waves of thugs.
There is currently no update as to the Xbox One version of the game, as Microsoft’s much maligned parity clause (meaning indie titles must release on the same day as other consoles and/or have Xbox exclusive content) meant that developer Boneloaf halted development in early 2017. In fact, the official website makes no reference to an Xbox One version.
