Time to Kill Some Mummies
Who doesn’t like hunting for ancient relics while being chased by deadly monsters? I know that was a big draw of the Mummy movies. And it’s also the basic premise for Strange Brigade. Though this multiplayer romp by Rebellion came out a couple years back on other systems, now it’s headed to Nintendo Switch! When HPP reviewed it on PS4, the consensus was the following – “It may not be an entirely new experience, but it’s nice to see a shooter that doesn’t take itself TOO seriously while still providing the player with a solid shooting experience.”
For those interested in blasting some mummies to dust, here’s some more fun details:
ONE GRIPPING ADVENTURE
Hunt the foul Seteki through a rip-roaring campaign filled with dangerous dig sites, prodigious pyramids and crumbling caves packed with bountiful foes to send back to the afterlife. Explore alone or team up in 2-4 player online co-op!
FOUR FEARLESS FORTUNE HUNTERS
Travel the ancient world as one of four dashing agents trained to tackle the supernatural. Unleash devastating magical powers and unload powerful prototype weapons such as the fire-spitting Krakatoa, the ice cold Chill Burster, and the brain-busting Blunderbuss!
A LEGION OF MALEVOLENT MONSTERS
Seteki is not the only mythological menace to have awoken … she’s brought an army of loyal beasts with her! Face her many nefarious ne’er-do-wells, including moaning mummies, fire-breathing assassins, armour-plated minotaurs, giant scorpions and much, much worse!
TONS OF TERRIFYING TRAPS
Keep an eye on your environment to find creative ways to boff your enemies! Decapitate the undead with spinning blades, fry them to a crisp with fire traps, crush them with a well-placed boulder and more. You wouldn’t set them on your team mates … would you?
OODLES OF PUZZLING PREDICAMENTS
Keep those peepers peeled for suspicious clues, secret entrances and ancient contraptions that need re-awakening! Who knows what alluring treasures and buried riches await you on the other side…
Challenge yourself in two extra modes for 1-4 players. Try the fast-paced Score Attack where speed meets style, or take on wave after wave of deadly foes in the action-packed Horde mode!
For me, the biggest question is how well the multiplayer will translate to the Nintendo Switch later today. If it’s fluid, then this will be a great experience. Be sure to check out the E3 reveal below, and stay tuned to HPP for more from E3 2021.
