    Strange Brigade – Super Convincing at First Glance

    Sniper Elite famed developer, Rebellion, is giving us a substantial peek at their upcoming cooperative shooter, Strange Brigade. We’ve compiled a highlight of the things we noticed from the 6-minute long trailer, what we believe is worth noting anyway. Before we get into the nitty-gritty of the trailer, here is an overview of what Strange Brigade is all about.

    Egypt, 1930’s. Erased from ancient history and buried in a nameless tomb for 4,000 years, Seteki the Witch Queen has risen once again. Only one troop of daring heroes can stand against the fearsome power of Seteki and her army of mummified monstrosities: The Strange Brigade! Explore remarkable ruins, solve perilous puzzles and uncover tantalizing treasure while blasting your way through an array of undead enemies in thrilling third-person action that’s certain to bring out your inner adventurer!



    The Highlights

    • Online Co-op – This action-packed game can be enjoyed solo or played cooperatively with up to 4 players. Despite the solo option, this is the type game that is more enjoyable with a party. The more the merrier, no?
    • Huge Maps – For a cooperative game, the maps in Strange Brigade is considerably huge. Maps with ancient civilizations themes and many hidden treasures to be discovered that is sure to reward those who love to explore.
    • Interactive Environments – Apart from the huge map layouts. It seems that each map will consist of various kinds of traps as well as assortments of puzzles. Furthermore, those precariously lined up explosive barrels will provide some tactical advantage, if not, some explosive entertainment for players.
    • 4’s the perfect company 4 distinctive characters to choose from. Each with their own respective abilities and personality. From right punching hordes of undead with Gracie Braithwaite, to the explorer Professor Archimedes De Quincey that allows you to open up hidden paths in each map.
    • Plentiful of weaponry   Shotguns, pistols, semi-automatic rifles and other weapons to choose from to dispatch foes. Grenades with different kinds of properties such as sticky grenades are also available. Furthermore, many chests laying around that grants you temporary use of certain prototype weapons such as a flamethrower or the explosive crossbow.
    • Enchanting weapons Opening up chest also provides mystical jewels which can be slotted into all weapons. These jewels provide even more perks to your firepower such as freezing enemies with each shot or even regenerate some health while gunning down hordes of enemies.
    • Suped-up Powers Each character comes with 4 different amulet powers that emulate the power of the enemies. Summon your own undead army or transform foes into chickens for some easy pickings, however, only 1 power can be chosen at a time, it expands the arsenal at your disposal and provides some tactical options based on the situation at hand.
    • Monsters and demons in all varieties To get to Seteki, you will need fight through all manners of monstrosity at her disposal. From hordes of mummies to giant deadly scorpions to even skeletal pirates. This game has all the bad evils that you need to fight your way through before you can take on the Witch Queen herself.
    • Different ways to play The game comes in three modes namely Campaign, Horde and Score Attack. Play and experience the story that seemed to have some inspiration from The Mummy movie. Horde mode as the name suggests provides the non-stop action by clearing off wave after wave of fiends. While Score Attack provides a more action-oriented gameplay by putting you at a tightly-controlled straight path with a varied mix of enemies to shoot at. All modes can be played solo or cooperatively.


    From the above trailer alone, it seems Rebellion has provided a pretty packed and well-rounded game that would definitely promise hours of fun cooperatively.

    Strange Brigade will be coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC on August 28th.
