The campy, 3rd-person shooter Strange Brigade by Rebellion was released on Nintendo Switch back in June 2021. It was only released digitally via the eShop then but now, thanks to Super Rare Games, you can now purchase the game physically while stock lasts. As a fan of other Rebellion games like Sniper Elite and Zombie Army, I knew I had to add Strange Brigade to my collection as well, and the fact that it is themed on Ancient Egyptian mythology and the supernatural just made the decision even easier.
Super Rare Games has two editions available of Strange Brigade; a Standard Edition and a Steelbook Edition. Naturally, I went for the Steelbook edition as the Steelbook itself is seriously sweet to look at. It also came with a pack of three trading cards that are part of a set of five. I picked up a couple of extra packs separately so I would have a better chance of getting the full set. Fortunately, I did end up getting a full set and have a few spares as well. If you would like to see the contents of the Steelbook Edition of Strange Brigade in video format, I have recorded an unboxing video, which you can check out for yourselves in the embedded video below. If you would like to see close up pics instead, do scroll past the video.

Seeing as I have promised you close-up pictures of the Steelbook Edition of Strange Brigade, it is time for me to deliver. As for the contents, the Steelbook edition comes with a cardboard cover sleeve, a standard copy of the game, a steelbook, a postcard, a Super Rare Games Sticker, and a pack of three cards that I mentioned before.
So, what do you think of the Strange Brigade Steelbook Edition by Super Rare Games? Does it seem like something you may want to pick up for yourself? Perhaps you require a little more convincing? Well, we do have a general synopsis for the game as well as some of the game’s main features listed below should you wish to learn more about the game. Just don’t take too long in case there are no more copies left when you do decide to pick up the game physically.
