Steam Brings Side-Scroller Favorite Castle Crashers to PC

In summer of 2008, The Behemoth released its beat-em-up side scrolling hit, Castle Crashers on the Xbox 360. Two years later, the game made its way over to the PlayStation 3. Now, it looks like the game is finally headed towards the PC. According to the developer's blog, the game will be getting a much anticipated release on Steam in the following months.

In addition to all of its usual monster-smackin glory, Castle Crashers on Steam will include integrated voice support, Steam achievements, gamepad and Steam Cloud support. Best of all, the game can be in local or online multiplayer. No official release date has been given just yet, but Behemoth is currently at Gamescom presenting the progress that has been made on the PC edition.

For the full list of features and system requirements for the upcoming title, head on over to the Behemoth developer's blog here.

    Sorry but... what a piece of crap game.
    My old Sinclair Spectrum side-scrollers are more fun.

    P.S. How is this news on a HARDWARE magazine ?

    Actually TomsHardware isn't an exclusive hardware magazine.

    The characters have a slight resemblance to Plants vs Zombies.

    Oh thank god! And about damn time!
    I don't own a tv, my xbox broke years ago and I wouldn't pay M$ for online play in the first place.

    Mac version, too? Local multiplayer is cool, but I would rather not have to switch to Windows, as the UI is garbage in 7. Looking forward to the new one in 8!
