New, 8 comments

BattleBlock Theater, the multiplayer platformer from The Behemoth, will be released on Windows PC via Steam later this year, the studio announced today.

BattleBlock Theater debuted on Xbox Live Arcade last April. The PC version will be integrated with the Steam Workshop so players can share the levels they create, as well as Steam Inventory so they can trade and sell in-game items. The Steam version also includes other features that the XBLA version didn't come with, including additional Cat Guard enemies in the story mode; the ability to switch weapons and support for keyboard and mouse, XInput and DirectInput.

The Behemoth plans to run a closed beta for BattleBlock Theater on Steam from March 24-31. Interested parties can sign up for a chance at a beta key on the studio's website.
