Eidos announced the return of the legendary Commandos series in the World War II first person shooter [I]Commandos Strike Force[/I] today in a company press release. Set in war torn Europe amid the backdrop of World War II, you must take your elite group of Commandos behind enemy lines on a series of linked missions through France, Russia and Norway.
“By combining the tactical approach of the previous Commandos games with the intense action of a fps, Commandos Strike Force will provide a more cerebral approach to the war game genre,” said Ignacio Perez, CEO of Pyro Studios. “Strike Force is our most ambitious project ever and we believe that this game will set a new benchmark for World War II videogames.”
As well as a compelling single player campaign, the game features a variety of original online multiplayer modes.
[I]Commandos Strike Force[/I] will be released worldwide in spring 2005 on PlayStation 2, Xbox and PC.
