Eidos, one of the world's leading publishers and developers
of entertainment software, announces the return of the legendary Commandos in
the World War II first person shooter Commandos Strike ForceTM. Developed by
Pyro Studios, Commandos Strike Force will be released worldwide in spring 2005
on PlayStation 2, Xbox and PC.
In a new direction for the multi-million selling series, Commandos Strike Force
takes you right into the heart of the action from a first person perspective.
Take control of the three members of the 'Strike Force' unit, each with their
own play style. Switch between the Green Beret, always at the heart of the
action with his expertise in combat and the use of heavy weaponry, the Sniper
with his nerves of steel and expert marksmanship, and the Spy, stealthily
striking at the heart of the enemy. However, it is up to you how you execute
plans of attack by combining the Commandos' unique skills.
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. Destroying a Nazi ship, ambushing enemy
troops, freeing French Resistance prisoners and kidnapping a general are a few
of the large range of missions. As well as a compelling single player campaign,
the game features a variety of original online multiplayer modes. In the most
fearsome war ever fought emerged the most fearless soldiers.
