During Sunday’s Microsoft and Bethesda press conference at the E3 2021 digital show, Avalanche Studios unveiled its latest game, a connected, co-op game titled Contraband.
In a brief trailer for the game, a heavy 1970s style can be felt, with music from the era playing over what looks to be a crew of people fixing up various things. Contraband leans heavily on co-op play, with players having to work together in order to get out of various situations.
You can check out a trailer for Contraband below:
Contraband is being published under the Xbox Global Publishing Label, which handles Microsoft’s first-party titles that come from external studios. For more information on the game courtesy of Microsoft, check out below:
Contraband is a co-op smuggler’s paradise set in the fictional world of 1970s Bayan and our most ambitious and spectacular game to date. We’re taking everything that we’ve learned from 18 years of being at the forefront of creating beautiful, vast open game worlds filled with stunning vistas and incredible emergent gameplay moments.
To fully deliver on our vision for Contraband, we have an amazing team at Avalanche Studios that are pushing the boundaries with the next generation of our Apex Engine, the technology behind all our games, including the Just Cause series. We built the engine to unlock the creativity of our developers and we’re excited to take full advantage of the unique capabilities of Xbox Series X|S.
Much like many of the other games shown off during Microsoft and Bethesda’s showcase, Contraband will be making its way to Xbox Game Pass.
