The first trailer for Commandos 2 - HD Remaster has been released

Posted by , | Views: 5,960

Commandos 2 - HD Remaster, announced with Linux support back in June now has a first gameplay trailer ahead of Gamescom.

Originally developed by Pyro Studios, it's now being handled by Yippee! Entertainment with Kalypso Media Digital acting as publisher since they acquired the rights back in 2018.

Here's the new footage:

Feature Reminder/Highlight:

  • Re-imagined in HD with reworked controls, modernized UI and an overhauled tutorial.
  • Interactive environments: steal enemy uniforms and weapons, climb poles, swing from cables, swim, utilize vehicles, and climb in/out of buildings, ships and planes.
  • Control nine unique commandos, each with different skills and specializations including green beret, sniper, demolition expert, diver, seductress and thief.
  • The Commandos series’ first appearance in a modern 3D Engine: rotate the environment 360 degrees, move seamlessly in and out of buildings, submarines, planes and underwater, and zoom in and out of the environment.
  • Authentic WWII scenarios: 10 missions spanning 9 different environments in night and day, with realistic weather effects.
  • The choice is yours: how you tackle each mission is up to you. Experiment with skills and weapons in a challenging “against the odds” gameplay style.
  • WWII vehicles and weapons, including jeeps, tanks, trucks, ships, bazookas and flame-throwers.

You can wishlist/follow it on Steam. It's due to release sometime in Q4 later this year.

Since I absolutely adored Commandos, I'm super happy that Commandos 2 HD is coming to Linux. Such a great game, hopefully Yippee! Entertainment will do it justice.

As a reminder, Praetorians HD Remaster (trailer) was also announced at the same time. While Kalypso Media Digital are publishing both, each game has a different developer and only Commandos 2 is coming to Linux.

One of the best games of its kind, but... i've already played it a lot.

I'd have much prefered a new game, not a HD release of something i already now.

Wishlisted. I've only played some levels of the first game back then. I guess soon will be a good time to look into part 2.

I never played this, probably because I was playing a lot of Dreamcast when this came out. Think I'll pick it up day one.

Loved that Game back in the game. Would have loved if they released both, Commandos 1 + addon and Commandos 2

Loved the series so much. Was my first contact with these kind of games. Also pretty stoked about Desperados 3 atm.

If I remember right, I played the demo like 20 years ago. I don't think I ever had the full game. This might be the time... but I'm not totally sure.
