Double Fine Explains How Trenched Became Iron Brigade; Why a Bear Might Travel to Mars
One of those things is easier to explain than the other. Hint: It's the one about a bear.
We'll begin emailing you updates about %gameName%.
Double Fine recently held an event at its San Francisco office to show off some new downloadable content for Iron Brigade--a game you might know better as Trenched. Why the name change? You can thank international copyright law for it. Double Fine ran into some issues with a Portuguese board game maker that owns the rights to a product called Trench, which led to some problems getting the game released in Europe. To make a long story short, Trenched has been renamed Iron Brigade in all territories, with a free Survival mode update being released as a nice little gift to anyone who might be horribly, horribly confused by this whole ordeal.
But that free title update isn't the only piece of new content coming to Iron Brigade. Double Fine is also releasing a new DLC pack featuring four new missions and a boss fight. The setup is that Vlad, the original game's villain, has been defeated but not before he transferred his consciousness into his pet bear, Boris. Because why not? This leaves Vlad-Boris the man-bear on the run, so he escapes to the safest place he can think of to regroup and rebuild his defenses: Mars. We've got a full interview with the project director Brad Muir that goes into much more detail, so have a look right here:
