Rebellion has this week unveiled a brand new hero for their co-op shooter, Strange Brigade, as well as detailing the upcoming DLC release roadmap.
In a brand new update that’s available right now, players will be introduced to a brand new character, three free new levels for Score Attack mode, and a free new map for Horde Mode.
For those who own the Season Pass for Strange Brigade, they can now join the action as Patrick ‘Bash’ Conaghan, an “ex-rodeo rider with an eye for danger and pots of gold”. His special abilities are “shocking” thanks to his Wrath of Quetzalcoatl amulet which lets him unleash huge blasts of electric on unsuspecting cadavers.
Bash is also available for non-Season Pass owners via the Texas Cowboy Character Pack on PS4, Xbox One and PC for £5.59.
As for that spiffing free content, players will now be able to try their hand at Harbin’s Dig Path, Hidden Valley and Tunnels of Wadjet Score Attack levels as well as the new Palace map for Horde Mode.
Rebellion has also detailed the roadmap for upcoming Strange Brigade content as part of the Season Pass which includes a three-part “Thrice Damned” campaign. Oh, and each month there’ll be plenty of free content to keep non-Season Pass owners excited.
