What’s a good summer movie season without a slate of awesome/horrible movie tie-ins? We know that movie tie-in games are usually pretty bad (I’m looking at you The Amazing Spider 2 game), but sometimes one comes around that surprises us all. Expendabros, essentially a reskinning of Devolver Digital’s Broforce, is free to download right now on Steam.
Expendabros gives players a small taste of the run-and-gun insanity of Broforce, but instead of featuring the regular bros, it will feature broified versions of The Expendables 3 cast in honor of the upcoming release of the movie on Aug. 15. Terry Crews, Jason Statham, Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Dolph Lundgren, Wesley Snipes, and Randy Couture all show up in roided-out bro fashion.
The game is essentially an abbreviated version of Broforce, but it’s free and it’s fun, and that’s movie marketing done right.
