Meat Your Maker in Gang Beasts, Launching December 12 on PS4

The insane, irreverent multiplayer beef-em-up is nearly here.

James Spafford's Avatar Posted by Community Manager, Double Fine Productions

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! That’s right folks, the long awaited Beef-em-up Gang Beasts is coming to PlayStation 4 on Dec 12th!

Gang Beasts will launch with a whole glut of customization options, and with 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.

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!

One more thing! If you are heading to PlayStation Experience, Gang Beasts brawls and a tournament await you at the Double Fine Booth!

Yes FINALLY! Already a multiplayer masterpiece, it’s really exciting to hear there’s a co-op horde mode now too :-)

Been waiting for this. Loved the PC version for quite some time, even in its earliest stages, but I’d prefer to have it on a console that’s easier to get going for spur of the moment sessions with friends.

Hopefully it has some PS4 Pro support to smooth out some of those dips I saw in the trailer, but if not, no big deal, because I really need this game badly either way. Thanks for bringing it to PS4, guys!

Any type of single player content ?

    Gang Beasts is definitely best enjoyed with friends (or sworn enemies) but there is a Waves mode where waves of thugs come charging at you, and that can be played single player.

Does this have online coop outside the horde mode (the 4 player thug waves)?

    Waves mode is the only Coop mode at the moment, well, and the football (soccer) mode is 2 v 2. :)

Wow, I remember seeing a trailer for this a few years ago and being very very intrigued. To be completely honest, I forgot about it, but I’m super glad to hear it’s still coming and that it’s releasing so soon. This definitely looks like it has great potential to be another go to party game when my girlfriend and I have friends over : )

Optimus_Crime_24 said:

How many players online? I only keep seeing 4. Hopefully it’s 8 because it’s a big group of us that want to play together. I know pc had 8 players online.

20$/€ is not a big deal, I will surely pay for this game ! But I want to know: I have to pay the ps+ service to play online at this game ? or it’s online is free after you buy the game ?

LoopBak127 said:

December 4th, 8:44 am

I’m assuming the co-op is an online co-op and not shared screen co-op?

LilDankster said:

Just when I thought I was getting Gang Beasts, it’s not on PSN. It’s not in stores, so where. I supposed to find this. Is it only released for UK?

CannonBlade_ said:

XxUnseemlyPathxX said:

December 16th, 8:14 am

bloodyNASsassin said:

December 19th, 3:13 pm

This game’s online play does not work. Sony refuses to refund it. DO NOT PURCHASE IF YOU WANT A WORKING GAME!
