Rebellion’s recently announced new IP The Strange Brigade is currently being shown at E3 and it’s looking rather tasty. In this new video, Rebellion’s Tim Jones and Andy Pattison has jumped into a game to tell you more about the game and demonstrate the gameplay.
The Strange Brigade is a group of super secret Britsh government special operations group and this video shows the characters and their special abilities. Players have an amulet bar which fills up the more you kill, and once that’s filled up the characters can unleash their special abilities. The more powerups you achieve the faster you can chain them together.The demo also features traps which can be activated by the player to take out enemies in larger numbers.
The demo also demonstrates how players must work together, one example in the demo being that a door can only be opened by the character Gracie as she is an engineering class character. Crafting will also play a part, the more loot you pick up, the more currency you have to improve weapons at workbenches. There are puzzle elements too and these will change every time you play the game.
The game looks like a fantastic romp around some great looking environments packed full of mythological creatures. The Strange Brigade is definitely one to watch.
