Strange Brigade: Exclusive Play Through

Strange Brigade: Play Through

We’ve given Strange Brigade a play through and one thing that we will say afterwards is: Fun! This game is fun, fun, fuuuuun!! It’s very enjoyable by yourself defeating hordes of the undead. However, get a crew together and this levels of excitement and enjoyment go through the roof!

From the very start Strange Brigade is very charming with it’s friendly narrator (with his over the top British upper class dialect) and it’s 1930’s setting. The graphics draw you in to a world that is full of might magic and mystery. Yet at the same time having an underlying notion of danger when the undead appear. You know you’re in danger! Yet the locations are so pretty!

What makes Strange Brigade different to many other co-op games available today is that the levels and the game will change slightly depending on the numbers in your team. More enemies, lots of twists and turns with the levels and even the puzzles take it up a notch if you have a friend with you. Depending on who you have in your team, the chests that are scattered around the levels are there to help you. You can either share them out amongst yourselves. Or if you have a slightly unhelpful teammate (as we saw in our playthrough!) it can be a little competition to get the loot first. However we will say defeating the undead is a lot easier if you work together! Don’t horde the loot!


There are a range of characters to choose from, whilst the weapons stay the same no matter who you choose. It’s the taking of souls within the amulet where the separation between each of them is apparent. The game focuses heavily on the ‘amulet’ the small device that collects souls from the undead. Each character has their own special ability with how they utilise the amulet and the souls that they harvest. We found it a lot of fun cycling through the characters and witnessing the abilities for ourselves. We suggest you do the same, it would be such a shame to spoil it for you here!


There are a total of 9 levels to complete, each with their own areas to unlock via collection of coins. Though some will also require your brain to unlock via puzzles! Making for quite the exciting experience.  Plus the levels are interactive too, shoot various things to help defeat enemies. Shoot ropes to knock down blocks or shoot orbs to bring up a huge saw!

Horde Mode

Horde mode is also incredible amounts of fun, simply see how long you can last as a character taking on streams of enemies. The difficulty gets harder and harder as you progress so make sure you utilise the environment and collect those souls!


What is Strange Brigade?

Strange Brigade is your next favourite game! That’s what it is!

Strange Brigade takes users to places that they have never been before. The Plot? Well, simply there are four remote corners of the British Empire. What these remote corners entails no one knows as the shadows linger at their deepest. Who knows about these places the best? The servants of The Crown do and there are some supernatural beings that exist in these places!

Therefore it’s time to introduce the Strange Brigade! It is here where users are taken on an exotic safari, it’s dangerous and few dare to even embark on such an adventure. Why? As few return! As you go along this treacherous safari, you encounter civilisations that have once been forgotten by society, yet they’re fantastic within their own right, all while being shrouded in mystery! Go on adventures that take you to dark tombs and battle unimaginable evil!

Strange Brigade: Plot

You take on one of four adventurers or explorers. Each of the characters available to you have their own special powers, weapons and even tactics! The campaign takes you across a 1930’s era landscape and play with up to 4 friends along this action packed safari! However, as with many exotic plots, be aware of fighting armies of mythological characters that have been unleashed by an ancient Egyptian ruler: Seteki The Witch Queen. She’s so evil she has been wiped from hieroglyphs! So beware! To help you along the way there are secret caves around the safari. Why are these so special? Well within these caves there’s buried riches. Find these to help you along the way!

Sniper Elite 4

Recently Marcus went to Rebellion Games HQ and shot some guns all in the name of Sniper Elite 4!



WELCOME TO ITALY, 1943 Discover ultimate sniping freedom in the largest and most advanced World War 2 shooter ever built. Experience tactical third person combat, slick stealth gameplay and epic longs hots as you liberate Italy from the grip of Fascism.

With an expansive campaign for 1-2 players and dedicated co-op and competitive multiplayer modes, Sniper Elite 4 aims to deliver a definitive tactical third person shooter with unrivalled sniping freedom across environments many times the size of those seen in Sniper Elite 3

Set in the aftermath of its award-winning predecessor, Sniper Elite 4 continues the series’ World War Two heritage by transporting players across the beautiful Italian peninsula, from sun-drenched Mediterranean coastal towns, to colossal Nazi megastructures, ancient forests and hidden mountain monasteries.

Covert agent and elite marksman Karl Fairburne must fight alongside the brave men and women of the Italian Resistance to help free their country from the yoke of Fascism, and defeat a terrifying new threat with the potential to halt the Allied fightback in Europe before it’s even begun.

If his mission fails, there will be no Operation Overlord, no D-Day landings, and no Victory in Europe. Thrilling tactical third person combat: As deadly from distance as you are up close, adapt seamlessly to any combat situation and take the fight to Nazi forces with an impressive arsenal of iconic World War 2 sniper rifles, sub machine guns, heavy weapons, traps and explosives.

Slick new traversals and stealth takedowns: Climb, hang, shimmy, leap and clamber your way across the game’s vast environments to get the drop on enemies and deliver killing blows from behind cover, over ledges and more! Gaming’s most advanced kill cameras: Sniper Elite’s acclaimed X-ray Kill Camera shows the impact of your most impressive longshots, melee attacks and explosive trap kills on enemy bodies in bone-cracking detail.

Deep sniping customisation: Perfect your combat effectiveness by upgrading your own abilities via the skill tree, and tweaking key weapon traits such as scope magnification, muzzle velocity, stability and others.

Rewarding, tactical co-op: Play the entire campaign in co-op for 2 players, or jump into dedicated co-op game modes for up to 4 players.

Tense competitive multiplayer: Ratchet up the tension and take Sniper Elite’s trademark sharpshooting into unique adversarial play for up to 12 players in 7 modes across 6 custom-designed maps.
