Suns Out, Buns Out When Bare Butt Boxing Hits Early Access This May

Bare-bottomed beat-em-up Bare Butt Boxing enters Steam early access on May 4, 2023.

The wacky brawler Bare Butt Boxing will be entering Steam early access on May 4, 2023. Coming from developer Tuatara Games, the game is a multiplayer free-for-all where up to five players select different alien species who are all out to beat each other to a pulp without pants on. Suns out, buns out as they say.

Featuring both local and online multiplayer, Bare Butt Boxing is reminiscent of games such as Gang Beasts or Human Fall Flat. The general gist is a physics-based multiplayer sandbox where winning means using any means possible to defeat your opponent. There is no honor in fighting fair: you need to simply pummel your foes into submission.

“Get ready for a gleefully chaotic, free-for-all party brawl with all your mates in Bare Butt Boxing just in time for summer break,” said Tuatara Games founder Klemen Lozar. “The entire team is ecstatic for all of our fans to experience the intensely enjoyable matches that we’ve had developing over the past few years.

It’s hard to deny the color on display, though it will be interesting to see if Bare Butt Boxing can compete in a world that has Fall Guys and Fortnite. This does seem to be carving out its own niche.

After an undisclosed early access period, Bare Butt Boxing will release on PC, PS4, PS5, and Nintendo Switch later in the year. Be sure to hold onto your butts until it drops.
