Rebellion has released a content road-map – much of it free – for multiplayer adventure FPS, Strange Brigade.
It’s fair to say that Strange Brigade has not set the world alight since its release last month. The game stumbled into the UK chart at No.16, and the critical response, although fairly positive, played into the sense that this was the wrong game released at the wrong time.
That said, Rebellion look set to support Strange Brigade for the long haul, which is good to see. You only need to look at Ubisoft’s Rainbow Six Siege to find another title that started slow before becoming a quiet phenomenon.
Strange Brigade’s new content updates begin today with the release of a free map for Horde Mode, and Score Attack modes for the Harbin’s Dig Path, Hidden Valley, and Tunnels of Wadjet maps.
Season Pass owners can also download new character, Patrick ‘Bash’ Conaghan. He’s also available separately as part of the Texas Cowboy Character Pack.
The next content drop arrives in October with the first two campaign missions of a three-part arc called Thrice Damned. The concluding episode will follow in November.
Here’s the game’s full content schedule:
