Brad Muir, Project Lead on TRENCHED, had this to say: “You’re probably not even reading this part of the press release right now because we sent a video along with it. And honestly that’s fine; the video has all the information you need. Except the price. Oh crap we forgot to put that in the video. Ok I’ll just say it right here. It’s 1200 Microsoft Points. Did you get that? Maybe we should make that bold if you’re going to have it in a quote like this.”
Muir’s rambling continued: “We’re super excited to unleash TRENCHED into the wild. I’ve always loved co-op games and it’s awesome to contribute with a game like this.”
