Rebellion Games has confirmed that their 1930s co-op adventure, Strange Brigade will be launching across Xbox One, PS4 and PC on the 28th of August.

So what do we know about the story so far? As the trailer shows, our four friends find themselves in the untamed wilds of Egypt, where an ancient terror lingers in the shadows. An ancient Egyptian Witch Queen by the name of Seteki has risen from the dead and that’s never a good thing, to say the least. You and three friends must team up to defeat her army of the dead and send her back from whence she came.

“We wanted to get away from the tense shooters and something social and fun. With a four-player co-op, there was a new challenge of keeping it as difficult with one person as three or four. It’s a balancing act. Either way, we wanted something fun with a parody 30s matinee theme.” Strange Brigade Senior Designer, Tom Rigney.

The Elite Gamer team were lucky enough to interview with Senior Designer, Tom Rigney at Gamescom 2017.
