The 1930s co-op shooter Strange Brigade is almost upon us, and with it comes the obligatory launch trailer. The promising third person supernatural shooter has a great style and a unique vibe that we've come to rather enjoy, but something that hasn't been discussed too much is its small group of playable characters.

Up to now, we've known about the four shown in all the various promotional material, and they each have unique weapons and special abilities, making who you play as a more interesting choice. Today, Rebellion has announced a fifth character to round off the launch roster, named Winston Bey. He'll be available for free to all who pre-order or purchase the game within the first month of release, which is a nice bonus.

We currently have industrious reviewer Alex Stinton beavering away on Strange Brigade right now, and it isn't long to go before you'll be able to play it for yourselves. Are you excited for this unusual shooter? Don't spill your Earl Grey in the comments below.
