Xbox and PC shooter 'Strange Brigade' showcases unpredictable new level at E3 2018

Strange Brigade is a curious game which blends Egyptian mythology and third-person shooting together. Today, developer Rebellion unveiled new gameplay footage from the title at E3 2018. The video features seven minutes of bombastic action from Strange Brigade's explosive second campaign level. It also includes exclusive commentary from Lead Designers Steve Bristow and Ben Fisher.

Bristow and Fisher discuss Strange Brigade's progression system, story, puzzles, exploration, and much more. The gameplay also looks stunning and should look even better at "4K Ultra HD" on Xbox One X. Hopefully there will be a 30 FPS or 60 FPS frame rate toggle as well.

According to Rebellion, Strange Brigade 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.

Strange Brigade is 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 missions in the future.

  • The game looks like a lot of fun but I'm worried it doesn't have an engaging story. Just "rooms" you go through a kill enemies. Like little arenas.
