MY.GAMES and Allods Team Arcade have been working in secret to develop a brand new game and it’s been announced today as Blast Brigade vs. the Evil Legion of Dr. Cread.
Blast Brigade vs. the Evil Legion of Dr Cread has been announced today by Russian publisher MY.GAMES and developer Allods Team Arcade. The game’s announcement comes with a trailer as well as the reveal that the game will release on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch later this year. There’s no release date as of yet, but that’ll come at a later date.
According to the presser, Blast Brigade is inspired by the over-the-top popcorn movies of the ’80s, combing Metroidvania-style exploration, bullet mayhem, and a good smattering of humour within its cartoon world.
The game also boasts four playable characters, each with unique skills and abilities, weapons that can be upgraded, and challenging boss fights that players will need to overcome in order to save the world. Standard stuff, then.
⎯ The American Jeff (J. Jefferson), who has never found a problem he can’t blast his way out of. Using his trusty grenade launcher, Jeff is an all-American hero who always charges into headlong confrontations with evil-doers and villains.
⎯ Soviet KGB Agent Alexandra “Shura” Voron infiltrates hostile territory with her grappling hook to take out enemies of the motherland with her sniper rifle. A master manipulator and infiltrator, Shura preferably works from the shadows to achieve her goals.
⎯ The Scotsman Gavin Henry Gale or “Galahad” is a MI6 spy that was recently captured by Dr. Cread. After being subjected to horrible experiments at the hands of the Doctor, he managed to escape and now uses his cyborg body to wreak havoc on his foes.
⎯ Holy Sentinel Vartaxaklahun “Vortex” Paqarnusta works with the Blast Brigade to help liberate her island from Dr. Cread. Wielding Chakrams in a spinning dance of death, Vortex also has rudimentary knowledge of the ancient technology of the island.
