Strange Brigade

WILL YOU ANSWER THE CALL TO ADVENTURE?
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 tantalising 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!

ONE GRIPPING ADVENTURE

Hunt the foul Seteki through a rip-roaring campaign filled with dangerous dig sites, prodigious pyramids and crumbling caves packed with bountiful foes to send back to the afterlife. Explore alone or team up in 2-4 player online co-op!

FOUR FEARLESS FORTUNE HUNTERS

Travel the ancient world as one of four dashing agents trained to tackle the supernatural. Unleash devastating magical powers and unload powerful prototype weapons such as the fire-spitting Krakatoa, the ice cold Chill Burster, and the brain-busting Blunderbuss!

A LEGION OF MALEVOLENT MONSTERS

Seteki is not the only mythological menace to have awoken … she’s brought an army of loyal beasts with her! Face her many nefarious ne’er-do-wells, including moaning mummies, fire-breathing assassins, armour-plated minotaurs, giant scorpions and much, much worse!

TONS OF TERRIFYING TRAPS

Keep an eye on your environment to find creative ways to boff your enemies! Decapitate the undead with spinning blades, fry them to a crisp with fire traps, crush them with a well-placed boulder and more. You wouldn’t set them on your team mates … would you?

OODLES OF PUZZLING PREDICAMENTS

Keep those peepers peeled for suspicious clues, secret entrances and ancient contraptions that need re-awakening! Who knows what alluring treasures and buried riches await you on the other side…

MESMERISING MODES

Challenge yourself in two extra modes for 1-4 players. Try the fast-paced Score Attack where speed meets style, or take on wave after wave of deadly foes in the action-packed Horde mode!

  • I wasn’t expecting a huge amount from Strange Brigade, but what I got was a really enjoyable experience both offline and online. This was a pleasant surprise, as generally I’m not someone who would usually play online if I can avoid it. The fact that even I preferred playing online speaks volumes about Rebellion’s efforts in making a game that’s best played in co-op. There are a few things that could have been done better, but nothing that can’t be overlooked. This is one of my favourite multiplayer games in a very long time.

  • Strange Brigade is enormous amounts of fun whether you’re playing in co-op or single-player, and you’ll more than get your money’s worth from it.

  • It's like Sniper Elite Zombies, but better.

  • Strange Brigade is a flawed but ultimately fun experience. The combat is good if you can get over some of the quirks, like being forced to aim when you want to take a shot and no ability to automatically sprint without a decent amount of running room. The campaign length is fine, but the immediate knowledge that more levels are coming in via DLC gives you the perception that the game could have been much longer instead. If you don't mind having to gather friends to play online, then the experience is good since you barely have a shot of getting random online strangers to help out.

  • Strange Brigade, with its pulp magazine taste, is a good action co-op to play among most demanding titles. Unfortunately, the amount of content at day one is limited, holding back the score, although Rebellion has announced additional campaigns and new characters to expand the game after launch.

  • Strange Brigade is a nice coop shooter that pops dozens of puzzles and exotic monsters on your screen. A cringy campaign and a wild fun horde mode are built with friends and replayability mechanics in mind, but it just lacks the sense of identity, variety and epicness that other similar games offer.

  • The thing that pulled me through Strange Brigade’s campaign and had me tackling the extra horde and score attack modes, though, is its sense of style.

  • Strange Brigade is Rebellion’s attempt to develop something new, an action third-person shooter that makes playability and fun its principal objectives. Though the game is a fun and light experience, it should be played not too many times in a row because of the confusion that sometimes affects the on-screen action. It’s a game developed with professionalism and a generous amount of inspiration, and it could be a good way to pass these last summer days or to begin with the TPS world.

  • Games Master UK

    Fighting for queen and country is all very well, but it's something you should do in a group. [Nov 2018, p.66]

  • Strange Brigade is quite charming in its complete devotion to depict an overtly British adventure in supernatural Egypt of the 30s. For the 4-5 hours it lasted we had a satisfying co-op experience, filling like proper tomb raiders against hordes of skeletons, mummies and some welcoming boss fights. Unfortunately the lack of any significant feeling of progression and randomisation means that the replayability is almost non-existent.

  • Rebellion’s new co-op shooter is overall solid and enjoyable, although the fun doesn’t always come from what you may expect – collecting rare figurines and even Hathor’s Ladle (yes, that’s an artifact!) can be more gratifying than shooting hordes of the dead. The game is definitely a league apart from similar titles, and its unique and distinctive 1930's feel contributes to making it fun for anyone.

  • Strange Brigade is a sound party shooter, stylish and good to play with friends. It’s a nice romp, but the actual content feels very facile to me, lacking in terms of any meaningful engagement with the player.

  • Strange Brigade is a solid recommendation for anyone looking to dig into some old school third-person shooting wrapped in that Left 4 Dead campaign style with an added bit of 1930s distinct flavour. Strange Brigade isn’t a stand out title, it’s most likely not going to be on any Game of the Year lists, but a game doesn’t have to be innovative if it can capture something fun, and Strange Brigade does that. Not only is it a decent looking title that isn’t too demanding to run on a PC, but it takes its theme and runs with it confidently, offering a bloody good time with friends blasting through an Egyptian themed world that I don’t think I’ve been able to do in that setting since Serious Sam 3: BFE.

  • A bare-bones basic shooter that's good for some fun with friends, but there are other, better co-op adventures out there.

  • In this co-op game you will find a great fun adventure with comedy, puzzles, banter and high jinks. But even with all that, the game falters and stumbles to the side with its high price tag, DLC, loot being shared between all players but picked up by only one, the very lack of players in the multiplayer sections, and a rather short campaign.

  • Edge Magazine

    It's the curse of "better with friends" - if any member of your own personal brigade loses interest, it could quickly end up a dusty relic. [Nov 2018, p.118]

  • There’s some good stuff in Strange Brigade, such as its unique visual style and its deliberate kitsch narration. But if you’re used to Horde-type games, it won’t be challenging and fresh enough to entertain you.

  • A spirited shooter with an admirable commitment to aesthetic, but without the game design chops to pull off the progression system it wants to offer.

  • Strange Brigade is just a notch better than Sniper Elite 4, Rebellion’s previous failed attempt at making a cooperative shooter.

  • CD-Action

    Strange Brigade is full of dubious design choices, lacks content and gets boring quickly. [11/2018, p.76]

  • games(TM)

    Fun but not daring enough to be memorable. [Issue#205, p.77]
