In a surprise announcement, Rebellion’s single player and co-op third-person shooter Strange Brigade has made its way to the Switch.
Not that strange really
Update: I kept calling this a first-person shooter, but it’s been changed to third-person.
Remember Strange Brigade? The shooter was met with a solid response when it debuted back in 2018 for the PS3, Xbox One, and PC. If you don’t recall, Strange Brigade is set in the 1930’s and has a definite ‘The Mummy’ vibe.
In the game, players can team up or go it alone against an army of Egyptian undead. And now it’s back, and on Nintendo’s Switch as a surprise drop.
Egypt, 1930s. Erased from history and buried in a nameless tomb for 4,000 years, Seteki the Witch Queen has risen once again. Only one troop of heroes can stand against Seteki and her army of mummified monstrosities: the Strange Brigade.
Explore remarkable ruins, solve perilous puzzles, uncover tantalizing treasure and blast your way through an array of undead enemies in this rip-roaring 1930s third-person adventure for 1-4 players.Rebellion
