Feral Friday: Commandos Deployed To The Mac
11:29 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

After several unsuccessful attempts by multiple publishers at getting the highly popular World War II strategy title Commandos 2 brought to the Mac, the ingenious folks over at Feral Interactive have announced that they've accomplished the seemingly impossible, and are bringing the long-awaited title to the Mac. Better yet, the publishing powerhouse is upping the ante, and are bundling both Commandos 2 and Commandos 3 in their Commandos Battle Pack.

Originally released in 2001, the Commandos series entrusts players with the lives of a small group of elite Allied forces deep, deep, deep behind enemy lines; their mission: to perform a number of clandestine missions crucial to the Allied Force's efforts against their enemies. The band of brothers will be forced to deal with German patrols or groups of Japanese forces in some of the toughest missions of WWII. Player's success will depend on smart planning, stealth movement, and faultless execution.

Here's a bit more info on the game:

Prepare to take the Commandos on their deadliest mission yet, as you venture deep into enemy territory across three extensive campaigns.

From the frozen ruins of Stalingrad, through to the forests of central Europe, and onto the beaches of Normandy, your men must use their skills to confuse and defeat the enemy.

  • Take your team of six elite Commandos through 3 varied campaigns, each one vital to the outcome of WWII.

  • Completely new environments and dynamic mission objectives will keep your squad on their toes!

  • An all-new tutorial system will make sure that you and your men are fully trained and ready for action.

  • For the first time ever in the Commandos series up to 12 players can engage in deathmatch and cooperative multiplayer combat.
  • According to Feral, both games in the bundle are currently at beta, and are expected to be released before the end of the year, however there's no word yet regarding the game bundle'ssystem requirements. Stay tuned to IMG, however, as we'll be bringing you further news on these long-awaited titles as it becomes available.
