Play OverviewPlay Overview

Contraband is a four player co-op stealth game about smuggling in a fictional Southeast Asian 1970s Bayan. It's a heist/smuggling challenge where you are in a team of players. The play loop will include planning and preparation before heading into the action.

Contraband takes the open-world style of game (like Just Cause) in a new direction where stealth and careful planning are as important as parachuting in and killing enemies. There's a campaign mode alongside the multiplayer cooperative elements.

It has a focus on vehicles rather than weapons, both for the operation of each heist as well as the getaway. Here it draws on games like Fast and Furious. You will be able to upgrade and develop your vehicle to be equipped for upcoming missions - River Valley, Highlands, Coastline, and Pirate Towers.

Progressing will involve not only having a beefy well-equipped vehicle, but using the landscape, mechanics and game physics to get to the target and then get away with it safely stowed.

Our examiner, Andy Robertson, first checked Contraband 2 years ago. It was re-examined by Jo Robertson and updated 19 months ago.
