Strange Brigade launches next week, and Rebellion just dropped its bombastic launch trailer. 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. You have to team up with some quirky characters to halt the apocalypse.

Gameplay revolves around shooting enemies in third-person combat and solving puzzles. You go from level to level, exploring various structures, and acquiring "Scarab Keys" to progress further. It's quite a lot of fun and it's even better if you're playing with friends.

Hopefully Strange Brigade will be a polished experience when it launches in a few days. 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.
