The remasters for Commandos 2 and Praetorians now has a definite release date. Via a press release from Kalypso Media, Torus Games (Devs behind Praetorians HD Remaster), and Yippee! Entertainment (Devs behind Commandos 2 HD Remaster), both strategy games will get their HD remasters on January 24, 2020. They will be available on Windows PC.
For console fans of either of these titles, you’ll have to wait a bit longer to play. PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch gamers are going to have to wait until Spring 2020 to get their hands on Commandos 2 HD or Praetorians HD. You’ll be able to purchase these games separately or in a bundle.
Here’s are the descriptions for both games, courtesy of the press release mentioned above:
“In Commandos 2 – HD Remaster, take control of an elite group of Allied commandos who must venture deep into enemy territory and utilize their combined expertise to complete a series of notoriously demanding missions. In this World War II genre-defining classic, explore interactive environments and use the commandos’ unique skill sets to complete the mission against seemingly impossible odds.”
“In Praetorians – HD Remaster, lead the emerging Roman Empire by proving a legionnaire’s worth on the battlefields of Egypt, the combat theaters of Gaul and the heart of the Roman Empire in Italy, in a crusade to become Emperor. Combine units, master their varied skillsets and exploit the weaknesses of the enemy to emerge victorious.”
It seems that these two remasters are joined at the hip. A closed beta for both games have also been announced. Those who purchase the games on the Kalypso store will have access to the betas and you can play them on December 13th.
