Abaddon Books (the publishing arm of Rebellion) is set to release The True History of the Strange Brigade – an anthology fiction book based on the upcoming pre-war adventure video game of the same name, in January 2018, and will include stories from Cassandra Khaw, Gaie Sebold, Tauriq Moosa, Guy Adams, and Jonathan L. Howard
Abaddon Editor-in-Chief David Moore said that:
“Working for a publishing house that’s also a video games studio is an extraordinary opportunity. When we started to see the concept art for Strange Brigade go up on the wall, I jumped on it. It’s a fun, engaging game, and the chance to get in at the ground floor – not just to tell the stories of the Brigade, but in small part to help shape the game itself – is amazing.”
Contributing authors commented:
“If ever there was a brigade I would happily join, it’s a Strange one. The world and the characters of the Strange Brigade are rich, fun and right up my street.” – Guy Adams.
“I was delighted to have the chance to contribute to something that feels so engaging and quirky. I loved writing Nalangu, and only hope other people enjoy her as much as I did.”
Strange Brigade tells the stories of remote corners of the British Empire where the supernatural lurks and the shadows linger, where few dare go and fewer return. This is the world of the little-known Department of Antiquities – the so-called “Strange Brigade,” – tasked with confronting ancient and terrible evils that threaten us all. But who are these mysterious adventurers?
You’ll have to wait a little while to find out – Strange Brigade is coming to PC, PS4, and Xbox One, but only has the release date of “coming soon.”
