Today, developer Blue Mammoth Games announced that its free-to-play 2D platformer fighter Brawlhalla, which is currently available on PC and Mac via Steam Early Access, is coming to PS4 sometime this summer alongside the full-release on PC and Mac.

Additionally, the developer also announced that it is taking sign-ups for a PS4 closed beta that is starting soon. As an incentive and thank you for participating in said beta, at launch all participants will receive an exclusive “I was in the beta” in-game avatar, and a free character unlock.

Never heard of Brawlhalla? No problem: here’s an overview via its Steam page:

Brawlhalla: An eternal battle arena where the greatest warriors in history brawl to prove who’s the best that ever was, is, or will be. Every match is an epic test of skill, speed, and strength, and every victory brings additional glory and bragging rights to the winners.

These slugfests are salted with powerful weapons and gadgets. Fighters scramble to grab swords, axes, hammers, blasters, rocket lances and more! Every weapon changes your play style and your options. Gadgets like mines, bombs, and spiked spheres add even more danger into the mix, letting fighters change the course of battle with a well timed-throw or carefully laid trap.

The game features: Online Ranked 1v1, Online Ranked 2v2, 4 Player Online Free for All, 8 player 4v4, Local Free for All, Local Custom Teams, Local Single Player (Square off against bots in a three game tournament series) Alternate Game Modes (Brawlball, Bombsketball and more), Tournaments both online and offline every weekend, and more.

According to the developer, Brawlhalla will always be 100% free to play, with no pay-to-win advantages and no in-game purchases to keep you from the action.
