Strange Brigade is a curious game which blends Egyptian mythology and third-person shooting together. The game follows the story of the "Witch Queen Seteki". Risen from the dead, Seteki commands an army of mummified monstrosities who want to destroy the world. However, it's up to the Strange Brigade, a band of brave adventurers, to fight back. The story is eerily similar to what happens in all "The Mummy" films.

Today, Rebellion announced a new character who will join the Strange Brigade. As long as you purchase the game in the first month, you'll get Winston Bey free of charge. Prospector, journalist, spy, diplomat, and traveler, Winston Bey has explored the world and seen it all. To him, the Strange Brigade's adventures are "just an amusing diversion" in his extensive voyages.

Hopefully Strange Brigade will be a polished experience when it launches this month. Sniper Elite 4 was a substantial leap for the studio because it approached "AAA" level polish even on base hardware.

Strange Brigade is off for rip-roaring escapades on August 28, 2018, starting at $49.99. The 1930's co-op adventure is currently available for preorder on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4. The title features Xbox One X enhancements as well. The Xbox One X version runs at 1800p resolution, while the PlayStation 4 Pro only achieves 1440p.
