Rebellion Development’s new co-op, third-person Strange Brigade recently rolled out and fans seem to be enjoying that game, as per expectations. However, there have been a few setbacks upon launch but it seems like the devs are settling things down. So while they are settling things down, they have also revealed their plan to roll out the promised DLCs.
As you may already know that while the game is built for single player mode, a co-op perspective too has been integrated into the game and it seems like the devs have deep plans for it.
Now we all know that the devs previously declared that they have no intentions to shift towards games as a service model at the moment it might not be the case but looking at the revealed DLC scheduled for Strange Brigade. It does seem that perhaps they just might change their mind.
Back in June, the CEO of Rebellion Jason Kingsley talking about the games as service model said,
I’m a strong believer in the traditional style of game – here’s a game, you pay the price, you get the game. There’s DLC, expansion content – that kind of stuff – but that’s it.
Having said that after the launch setbacks, the big DLC content schedule that covers over the months, has been set at your disposal. Which includes a new three-part campaign; The Thrice-Damned that is scheduled to begin in October, so get your selves ready.
