It almost seems like Double Fine's Gang Beasts has been in development for an eternity. Although it's been in Steam Early Access for some time, we've been waiting for an official release, just so we could throw people around like crazy (we're not psychotic, honest) and be the king of the Gang Beasts. Fortunately, it looks like we're getting our wish.
The publisher has announced that Gang Beasts will finally be making its way to PlayStation 4 and Steam next month, beating up all opponents starting on December 12th.
"Prepare to scream with horror and delight as gangs of saggy, pugnacious thugs from Beef City punch, kick and slapstick their way across your screen, hurling their foes into hazardous machinery or mercilessly head-butting them into flaming incinerator pits!" said James Spafford, community manager for Double Fine, speaking on the PlayStation Blog before announcing the release date.
Here's the official description of the game, straight from Double Fine:
"Gang Beasts is a silly multiplayer party game with surly gelatinous characters, brutal mêlée fight sequences, and absurdly hazardous environments set in the fictional metropolis of Beef City. Watch in horror and amusement as gangs of gummy miscreants fight to grab, push, pull, and force their enemies from suspended scaffolds, neglected funfair attractions, and commercial haulage trucks. Gasp with shock and delight at the spectacle of pugnacious thugs punching, kicking, and throwing their foes into hazardous machinery, flaming incinerator pits, and into the path of moving trains."
The game will feature various options for players, including new modes like the "clumsy-yet-brutal" two vs two soccer match-ups, as well as a cooperative mode, where players can work together to fend off armies of thugs.
"Settle all your holiday arguments with a trip to Beef City, where harmless, brutal, violence is fun for all the family! Gang Beasts is heading to your neighborhood on December 12th, until then please enjoy the new trailer above and get ready to FIGHT!"
Gang Beasts will be priced at $19.99.
You can check out the announcement trailer for the game below. Also, if you're going to PlayStation Experience, Double Fine will have Gang Beasts in tow, so you can beat up your friends one more time before it drops. There will also be a tournament with prizes for the top brawlers as well, so get your skills in.
Gang Beasts will be available on PlayStation 4 and PC starting December 12th.
