Strange Brigade, a new game from the creators of Sniper Elite, announced for Xbox One

Rebellion, the studio behind the Sniper Elite series, has unveiled its latest project for Xbox One: Strange Brigade. Alongside a short announcement (opens in new tab), Rebellion outed a reveal trailer that gives us a peek into the adventure to come. Check it out below:

In Strange Brigade, you play as part of the titular group of adventurers, embarking on a search for treasure and hidden civilizations around the British Empire. But as you explore, things take a dive into the supernatural. From Xbox Wire:

But should you somehow survive the mind-bending puzzles and dastardly traps of this ancient world, doom still awaits you in the shadows — a truly petrifying army of mythological menaces stands in your way, unleashed by an Egyptian witch queen so nefarious they wiped her from the hieroglyphs.

This is only a small look at what to expect, but Strange Brigade looks like it will serve up some pretty fun gameplay in a sort of wackier take on the Tomb Raider style. You can even invite three friends to join you on your adventure as the Brigade.

There's no release date yet available, but we'll likely learn more about Strange Brigade at E3 and in the coming months.

  • I kept telling my self this is not Uncharted but when I read it's about looking for treasures, now I am sure 😂
  • I never played Uncharted by the way. So I am excited for this one.
  • You mean searching for treasure isTomb Raider right.  Tomb Raider came out  over a decade befroe the first Uncharted.  Or do you mean Indiana Jones right? Because that came out over two decades before. Heck Pitfall was a gold seeking adventurer in an 8bit world.  Point is there have and will adventure treasure games.  This game apparently is group play (4 players) and quite different then any Tomb Raider or Uncharted type game.
  • You're right.
    My comment was before watching the trailer.
    4-player co-op really makes a difference.
  • Don't listen to that trash. Rise of the Tomb Raider is inferior to all 4 Uncharteds. Boring and uninspired. Lara should have been buried in that initial avalanche to seal her legacy for good.
  • Looks like something fun before the next Tomb Raider game comes out
  • This looks like it could be fun.
  • Is tom cruise going to be in it?
  • looks truly awful.
