Kalypso Media and Raylight Games give a nearly 19-year-old game a new look.
Commandos 3: Destination Berlin was released for PC on October 14, 2003, but now, a console version is (also) in the works. The HD remaster of the real-time strategy game will also be available in a physical format. According to the game’s Steam page, “Fall in, soldier! Commandos 3 HD Remaster sends you to the relentless and unforgiving battlefields of Europe. Fight your way through the deadly trenches of Stalingrad, defeat the German enemy in the fanatic heart of the Third Reich in Berlin, and use your tactical know-how to survive the storming of Normandy on D-Day. In this revamped third instalment of the acclaimed real-time tactics series, lead a notorious special forces unit deep behind enemy lines during World War II. Help the Allies to victory in high definition, with improved controls and user interface.
[It] includes reworked 3D models and textures built from the ground up, improved controls, refined UI and beginner-friendly tutorials and hints. The special units under your command, from the Green Beret, Sapper, Sniper, Diver, Spy and Thief, are experts in their field and crucial to the success of your mission. From training camp to 12 daring missions, experience history across three major frontlines, including Stalingrad, Central Europe and Normandy. Follow a crack team of commandos in a time of great peril; Commandos 3 HD Remaster includes even more detail and action than its predecessors. Compete in “Deathmatch” or “Collect the Flag” modes for two-to-eight players, all with distinct victory conditions.”
Commandos 3 HD Remaster is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC digitally in September, with a physical release coming in October. The PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series will be able to run the game as well. The remaster will also show up on (Xbox) Game Pass, so subscribers won’t have to go very far to try it out this fall.
