BattleBlock Theater Coming Soon to PC!

bbtposttop

In the 1970s, the personal computer took off and revolutionized the world. Somewhere in a parallel universe and time, a feline-run theater closed down but was soon visited by voyagers who had lost their way when a huge storm brewed–There was thunder (BOOM) and then there was lightning (BOOM)!

 

And now in 2014, we’re announcing that Hatty, his friends, and the S.S. Friendship will be colliding with that revolutionary box in your home–the other one…

Watch our announcement trailer below and by the time you’re finished with it, you’ll have one word stuck in your head all day: STEAM!!!

 

Nothing subliminal about it. BattleBlock Theater is coming soon to Steam and new things are coming with it.

 

New Features

-Weapon switching! Players can now switch between a primary and secondary weapon in game!

-New Cat Guard enemies throughout Story Mode.

-Steam Workshop integration for sharing user created levels.

-Steam Inventory integration for trading! This allows users to trade and sell weapons, prisoners, gems and yarn via Steam.

-X input, Direct Input, and Keyboard/Mouse support.

 

BattleBlock Theater Steam (version) is going to manifest moments in your mind you never thought would be possible. Don’t believe us? Try the game yourself before it even makes its official release on Steam.

 

From March 24, 2014 to March 31, 2014, we’ll be holding a Closed Beta for this upcoming PC edition of our game. A Closed Beta means you’ll need to register to get a beta key, but anyone 13-years-old and up are welcome to sign up!

 

The Beta start date is of course subject to change. We’re still updating and testing a bunch of items, and in the event something doesn’t feel right we might adjust the beta start. Regardless of this, we encourage you to register now.

    Will some of these updates be coming to Xbox 360?

    If I ask “pretty please” will my wishes be granted?

    (did you see the pretty please?)

    Super stoked for this! I just hope some of these new features get implemented in a title update for the 360. Honestly, I just think the idea of primary/secondary weapons is great and could care less about the extra cat guards.

    For the record though I would happily pay $3-5 dollars for any DLC like this on the 360 though. Just sayin…. ;)

    Holy christ, I was in the 360 beta, hopefully i’ll get in this one too!
    OMG HATTY ON CC! AAAAAH

    This will probably be my most played game on steam within about 2 weeks of the release. Thanks for bringing it over to PC!
