Contraband Announced From Avalanche Studios, Coming To Xbox Game Pass

The open-world co-op game was teased during the Xbox E3 2021 showcase.


Avalanche Studios teased its next game during the Xbox E3 showcase: an open-world co-op game called Contraband. Like many of the other games announced during the showcase, it will be available on day one through Xbox Game Pass.

The teaser was short and details were scant. It was mostly a mood-setter with Steely Dan playing over a scene inside a storage facility, with various boxes and goods scattered about. Presumably those are, well, contraband. In a follow-up tweet, Microsoft's Aaron Greenberg said the game is set in the 1970s in the fictional country of Bayan.

Avalanche is the studio behind the Just Cause series, so we may expect similar bombastic action here.
