Get your first look at Commandos Origins’ tactical WWII action

The classic Commandos strategy series is on the way back to PC and consoles, and we’ve got the first look at its gameplay.


You might remember that the original Commandos games saw a set of “HD” re-releases not all that long ago. Those though, were just the start of the series’ revival that’s coming up from Kalypso Media and Claymore Game Studios, with Commandos Origins.

The new game was announced some time ago, and will debut a younger version of the original team, including Green Beret Jack O’Hara and Sapper Thomas Hancock. While the characters will be a bit different however, the setting won’t be. This new adventure will showcase the squad’s coming together, and its first days behind enemy lines in WWII.

Kalypso says that there will be six playable heroes altogether, with over ten missions that’ll run the gamut from the Arctic to the desert. Fans will be able to tackle missions as they see fit, and even team-up for a little 2 player (online and off!) co-op.

Here’s your first look at Commandos Origins in action:

Join the front lines with iconic characters Jack O’Hara (The Green Beret) and Thomas Hancock (The Sapper) to guide the Commandos team through authentic historical locations during World War II. The new gameplay teaser showcases some of the best uses of the Commandos’ unique abilities: Infiltrate enemy facilities and hit them where it hurts before disappearing into the shadows. 

Kalypso press release

Commandos Origins has already seen a slate of testing, with fans talking part in some earlier this year. There’s more on the horizon as well however, with a closed beta that’ll be open to those same players happening some time soon.

It’s all building towards a full retail launch, with Commandos Origins is set to arrive on the PC, Xbox Series X|S, and PS5 some time later in 2024.
