Strange Brigade was initially announced in June 2017, and since then we haven't heard much about the project. All we know that it's an adventure game from Rebellion, the creators of the Sniper Elite series. Today, we not only got a concrete release date, but also a new trailer which showcases the story.
Strange Brigade is set off for rip-roaring escapades on August 28, 2018. The 1930's co-op adventure is currently available for preorder on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4. The game features Xbox One X enhancements as well. Strange Brigade starts at $49.99 for the standard edition, but the $79.99 version contains a season pass which promises new campaign missions in the future.
Today's new story trailer reveals the four heroes as they find themselves in deadly corners of Egypt, where ancient terrors still linger. According to Rebellion, Strange Brigade follows 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 game not only features third-person action like shooting and spells, but there are also a lot of puzzles and traps to solve. Strange Brigade can be played in single player, but it seems like it's meant to be a co-op experience.
If you love the concept of the game, be sure to check out the Collector's Edition which contains an airship model and massive art book. Hopefully Strange Brigade will be a great experience when it launches in a few months.
