Angry Mob Games has announced that their competitive platform fighter, Brawlout, will be launching on Early Access on April 20, with an Xbox One and PlayStation 4 release to follow later this year.
With an already impressive following in the competitive fighting game scene, you’d be surprised to hear that Brawlout isn’t actually available for us “normies” to buy yet. However next week, that’s all about to change. With a focus on local and multiplayer gameplay, Brawlout brings traditional fighting game mechanics to the fray while removing traditional blocks and grabs.
Think Smash, but on acid.
The Early Access release is set to come with six playable characters each with their own unique special attacks, new combo options, and more movement abilities and tech move.
“We’ve heard what players miss from classic fighters and what they love about new ones, and Brawlout is designed to give people the best of both worlds, whether that’s ruining friendships around the TV or going online to anger strangers in tournaments,” said Bogdan Iliesiu, CEO of Angry Mob Games.
The game will host upto four players in online and local matches which will also include ranked online tournaments. There’ll also be a robust single-player campaign so players can get to grips with the game before taking their skills online.
In addition to the release announcement, Angry Mob Games announced another character coming to the game that’ll join Paco, King Apu, Sephi’ra, Olaf Tyson, and Chief Feathers. That character is Volt who comes equipped with electric powers to keep enemies at a distance.
There’s set to be a total of eight characters coming to the game, two of which are still to be revealed. Brawlout will be coming to Steam Early Access on April 20.
