A remastered version of Commandos 2 will launch this year

If you are a fan of strategy games, it’s almost sure that you have played or heard about Commandos series. The legendary strategy series from Pyro Studios have been genre-defining since Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines launched in 1998. Its stealth-based isometric real-time tactics gameplay and great difficulty made it a big hit that was followed by other three titles and expansions in the following years, but one of the most successful ones was Commandos 2: Men of Courage since it was the first title in the series that was created using a 3D engine.

Commandos 2: Men of Courage gameplay

All of the Commandos games follow the same pattern; you control a squad of allied commandos in charge of completing a series of missions behind the enemy lines during World War II. Each of the members of your unit is a specialist in a different area of warfare and infiltration, so you will control characters like a Green Beret expert in melee combat, a sniper, a spy able to disguise, a marine that can dive and some others. Combining their skills and movements during real-time missions, you will have to accomplish several missions that have one thing in common; if you are discovered and an alarm is triggered, it’s most likely that you won’t escape alive.

The fans of the series are in for a surprise this year because Kalypso Media has announced that they will be launching a remastered version in HD of Commandos 2: Men of Courage. The new game will launch in Q4 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo switch. It will feature enhanced graphics in high definition as well as reworked controls, UI, and tutorial. On occasion of the announcement and the Gamescom a trailer where you can see the visual improvements.

If you want to relive some of the best moments of your life playing a true masterpiece of the strategy genre or if you have never played Commandos 2: Men of Courage this launch will be an excellent opportunity to do so.

Epic Games Store gets new features and continues giving away free games

You already know that you can get free games every week at Epic Games Store at least until the end of the year. This week is no different, and you just have to log in with your account to claim two great games. Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden and Hyper Light Drifter are available for free at Epic Games Store until August 22

Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is a tactical role-playing game developed by Funcom which takes place in a post-apocalyptic setting where radiation has changed the world, and the very few survivors struggle to find resources and shelter. It has a gameplay style similar to the games in XCOM series but with some interesting differences. You will be able to explore the scenarios in real-time however you like, but once you engage enemies, the game will change to turn-based. You will control a group of mutants that will explore a dangerous area known as the Zone in search of the mythical promised land of Eden. During your adventure, your group will earn experience to unlock new skills and also find new weapons. Putting them to good use against ghouls and the other terrible creatures that you will find in the Zone will be necessary if you want to survive.

Hyper Light Drifter is a 2D action role-playing game rendered in a pixelated style. The protagonist of the story, the Drifter, is afflicted with a strange illness and he will have to travel through the Lands of Buried Time in search of a cure. This adventure pays homage to the 16-bit classics, but it features modern mechanics similar to games like The Legend of Zelda or Diablo.

Other than the free games, the latest update to Epic Games Store has also added a couple of new features. The list of games that support Cloud Saving has been extended with seventeen new titles, and they plan to keep increasing the number progressively. Keyless integration with Humble Bundle and Humble Store has been enabled too, and now you can link your Epic Games account to your Humble account, enabling you to purchase games directly from the Humble store without requiring a redemption key. Finally, all of the product pages have been refreshed with new videos, descriptions, and additional information to provide better information to the customers.

Epic Games is putting a lot of effort into making its store competitive, and if they keep pushing forward, they may end surpassing Steam as the digital gaming platform of choice for many players.

Spelunky 2 won’t launch this year

The launch of the sequel to the very popular roguelike platformer Spelunky has been delayed. We were expecting to be able to play Spelunky 2 in 2019, but it seems that this is not going to be possible according to the words of developer Derek Yu. He has stated on Twitter that they just need more time to finish the game. He did not commit to a release date in 2020 so all the fans of the original Spelunky may find themselves waiting quite a long more than expected.

It’s been a long way since Spelunky 2 was announced at Paris Games Week 2017 and since then, Mossmouth and Blitworks have been working very hard to finish the game. It looks like the increasing complexity and detail of the scenarios along with all the new features demand far more time than they initially expected. Procedurally generated scenarios which include novelties like liquid physics, mounts, new characters, and cooperative multiplayer online for several players are more than enough reasons to be excited about Spelunky 2. If you take a look at the gameplay video, you will see that the game already looks awesome, so waiting a bit longer for its release is definitely going to be worth it.

Spelunky 2 will follow the adventures of Ana Spelunky and her friends as they journey deep underground to discover amazing locations full of traps, treasures, secrets and a lot of enemies, of course. It’s coming to PlayStation 4 and PC whenever it is ready. We hope that it’s as soon as possible.

ERI Review

Players will have to jump their way through 45 different levels in the new release of Mauri Republic’s ERI. Featuring trial-and-error gameplay and a simple control scheme, should you set out to clear this one?

ERI Review

The action is ERI boils the genre down to its most basic elements. As a self-learning artificial intelligence, you must get from one side of each of its 45 levels to the portal on the other. However, a number of obstacles stand in your way, with loads of nasty spikes, sawblades, and other sharp objects to end your run.

Gameplay is fairly simple, with everything done with the arrow keys. The main method of traversal is the time-tested jump, which launches the player into the air and can be used an infinite number of times. The fun of the game comes with navigating its tight quarters and hairy situations with this mechanic – timing and planning are an absolute must, and though there are infinite lives, players can expect to do each section multiple times until they’ve finally finished it and nabbed the achievement.

There’s two interesting wrinkles that make this title stand out though. The first comes in the form of its aesthetics – each run you have leaves a ghost trail of images that shows where you’ve been. If you somehow lose your way, your second run will then feature a different color while your original run trail still remains. This quickly proves to be an ingenious way to right previous wrongs and figure out the ideal path. Certain sections had particularly tricky sections, and it was through the path of the fallen that we were able to finally make it through. It works well as a visual element too – the dark background and vector-like graphics give it a minimalistic, yet unique style.

Players can also get ahead of the game by changing their spawnpoint. By pressing down at any given time, players can instantly place a spawnpoint wherever they are at any given moment. You are at the mercy of wherever you put it, as it can mean certain death if put in the wrong place. However, this makes what would normally be an impossible game just a little bit easier. Note that this isn’t a foolproof method; spawn points can be destroyed by hazards, so players must be mindful.

Note that this title and its 45 stages aren’t the longest around. We were able to finish the bulk of it in around an hour. Unfortunately, the game needed to be reinstalled when we were a few levels shy of completing it due to a bug, one that would not boot the game, but your mileage will vary.

ERI might look like a simple platformer, but its genius lies in its simplicity. Finding the perfect trajectory is more fun than you’d expect it to be, and even though it’s a short title, it is still worth a go for fans of the genre.

This review of ERI was done on the PC. The game was purchased digitally.

DOOM Eternal shows its Battlemode multiplayer gameplay

Bethesda Softworks and Id Software are trying to make amends by improving multiplayer gameplay in DOOM Eternal. The previous installment in the series was launched by them in 2016, and many players complained about it saying that it didn’t really feel like a DOOM title, so the developers have been working hard on bringing back the frenetic gory mayhem that made the franchise one of the favorites of the first-person shooters’ fans. We can watch the results of those efforts in a new gameplay video that shows six minutes of DOOM Eternal’s Battlemode.

Battlemode is a two vs. one gameplay mode in DOOM Eternal where one player takes the role of the Slayer to fight against two other players who have to choose between five different demons to try and get rid of the legendary protagonist of the ” rel=”noopener” target=”_blank”DOOM series. Each of the demons will have different abilities; the Pain Elemental can fly and protect himself with a soul shield, the Revenant can dash and is equipped rocket launchers, and the Mancubus is a slow brute armed with flamethrowers and heavy cannons. They also share some capabilities too, like setting traps through the map and summoning lesser demons that will attack the Slayer. Combining their capabilities will be the best option to try and get rid of the hero.

The Slayer won’t have an easy time in this mode. Not only he will have to manage his resources and get rid of two opponents, but once he kills the first demon, he will only have twenty seconds to kill the second one before the first one resurrects. This feature adds a lot of strategic options to the mode, because if both demons try to gang up on the Slayer they will probably have more chances of killing him, but they are also giving him a better opportunity to destroy both of them together.

DOOM Eternal – Battlemode

Six different arenas will be available for Battlemode when DOOM Eternal launches on November 22 this year for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Google Stadia. Id Software has promised to add more stages and demons for free after the release of the game.
