Commandos 2 and Praetorians HD Remasters Announced

Kalypso Media has announced that they are working on HD remasters of two classic Pyro Studios games.

The WWII real-time tactics game Commandos 2 and the Roman RTS Praetorians will both be getting the HD remastered treatment in Q4 2019. The games won’t just be brought up to HD, but also feature a modernized UI, improved controls, and an updated tutorial. You can watch the announcement trailer for both games above.

Commandos 2 HD Remaster will be coming to Windows PC, Mac (both via Steam), PS4, Switch, Xbox One, and tablets, while Praetorians HD Remaster will be coming to Windows PC (via Steam), PS4, and Xbox One.

Here’s a rundown of both games:

In Commandos 2 HD Remastered, take control of an elite group of commandos who must venture deep into enemy territory and utilize their combined expertise to complete a series of notoriously demanding missions set in World War II. In this genre-defining classic, explore interactive environments and use your commandos’ unique skillsets to complete your mission against seemingly impossible odds.

In Praetorians HD Remastered, take your place in an emerging Roman Empire by proving your worth on the battlefields of Egypt, the combat theatres of Gaul and the heart of the Empire itself in Italy, in a crusade to become Emperor. Combine your units, master their varied skillsets and exploit the weaknesses of your enemies to emerge victorious. But beware – the closer you get to the Emperor, the closer you get to facing the infamous Praetorian Guard.
