In the summer of 2018, the publisher Kalypso Media from the Spanish studio Pyro Games acquired the rights to various strategy and tactical games such as Praetorians and the commandsseries taken over. While the successors that were announced at the time are still a long time coming, HD remasters of Praetorians (for the game check) and commandos 2 (at the hour of the critics) appeared. Now also received the real-time tactical game Commandos 3 a rejuvenation and will be released digitally in September for PC, Playstation 4, Switch and Xbox One. The physical version will follow in October.
Commandos 3 HD Remaster enables resolutions up to 4k. Menus and UI have been revised for this, as well as the 3D models for characters and interiors. 2D backgrounds and cutscenes are upscaled. The controls of Commandos 3 are said to have been improved compared to the original. Especially the latter has Jorg Langer and Heinrich Lenhardt in the SdK for the remaster of the second part cost a lot of nerves. Calypso Media promises “perfect usability” with controllers and, on PC, fully customizable keyboard controls with shortcuts for every weapon, ability, and item. Changes have also been made to gameplay, including expanding the tutorial and adding a new difficulty level, Beginner. There are a total of two training missions and twelve main missions for single players, as well as a multiplayer mode for two to eight people.
Of course, an announcement trailer for Commandos 3 HD Remaster should not be missing. You can find it included under this news.
