PlayStation 4 gamers will be happy to know that a patch is on the way for recent PlayStation Plus ‘Vote To Play’ winner Broforce.
Developed by Free Lives Games, Broforce is a side-scrolling, run-and-gun platformer that stemmed from a game jam in early 2012. Initially releasing on PC, Mac and Linux platforms in October of 2015 the title was later included in the February ‘Vote To Play’ initiative for the PlayStation Plus service. Broforce was overwhelmingly voted by gamers as their winner, where it subsequently released on the service earlier this month. Unfortunately various technical issues from input lag and frame drops have plagued the title on the PlayStation 4, causing frustration amongst many gamers. Thankfully publisher Devolver Digital has confirmed to us via email that a patch is indeed on the way to fix these issues - an estimated release date is not currently known though.
In other Broforce news, PlayStation are currently hosting a competition asking gamers to create a trailer for the title through the consoles SHAREfactory feature. The winner will receive 50 euro’s of PlayStation Store credit, along with codes for the other two ‘Vote To Play’ titles - Action Henk and Assault Android Cactus.
