E3 2021: TPS Strange Brigade is out right now on Switch

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.


While the core game is the same one that saw release a few years back, there are some new elements just for the Switch’s edition. Those include:

  • Local Play – Includes 2-4 player local wireless play
  • Online Play – 2-4 player online co-op
  • Enhanced Controls – Motion Controls, HD Rumble and Pro Controller support
  • Technical Enhancements – Dynamic Resolution Switching for smooth 30fps gameplay. Running up to 1080p on TV and 720p handheld
  • Achievements – Achievements with in-game tracking screen
  • Friend Invites – Send invites to online and offline friends

Strange Brigade is available in both standard and Deluxe editions right now on Switch. Check it out here.
