Eidos Announces Commandos Strike Force
6:00 AM | Jean-Luc Dinsdale | Comment on this story
In an unusual move for the financially-unstable software publishers, faltering game giants Eidos have recently announced that the next addition to the popular World War II-themed strategy franchise Commandos will be morphed into a first person shooter.
Commandos Strike Force places players in charge of a three-member Strike Force team, comprised of a Sniper, a Spy, and a Green Beret. Players will get to switch between each of the characters in the first person view in order to utilise each character's strengths and unique skills to overcome the enemy.
Set against the backdrop of World War II in a battle-scarred Europe, players will be dropped behind enemy lines in order to execute a series of stealth and intelligence missions through occupied France, Russia, and Norway. Similarly to the franchise's previous titles, players will be tasked with sneaking around and causing havoc of all scale, from freeing prisoners of war to kidnapping a high-ranking Nazi general. This time, of course, players will get a whole new take on the action through the game's new first person perspective.
While a Mac version of the new title has not been officially mentioned, players interested in the title should keep their eyes on Mac game publishers Feral Interactive, who will be publishing the Commandos Battle Pack in time for the holiday season. The game bundle, comprised of the Mac versions of both Commandos 2 and Commandos 3 strategy games, marks the first time the highly-regarded strategy titles make it to the Mac OS platform.
