Dropping late last week was the double-pack of reborn strategic action titles from Kalypso. Commandos 2 and Praetorians are both out now.
Both PC gaming classics, Praetorians and Commandos 2 remain favorites of many gamers from the early 2k’s. Now both games are back in action once again, thanks to Kalypso.
Originally developed by the defunct Pyro Studios, the development of the remasters had been signed to Yippee! Entertainment, Raylight Games and Torus Games. The result is a reborn set of classics, with some modern improvements and fresh looks.
More than just a visual remaster, both games include a host of improvements over the original releases. Those include “evamped tutorials and campaign missions, controller support, as well as an integrated version of Praetorians – HD Remaster’s multiplayer mode.”
