Commandos 3 Interview
(hx) 09:44 AM EDT - Apr,22 2003

GGMania got a chance to talk with Ignacio Perez of Pyro Studios as he answers a few questions regarding to Commandos 3: Destination Berlin, their upcoming upcoming tactical strategy game. Commandos 3: Destination Berlin is slated for release in September 2003.

GGmania: Could you introduce yourself to our readers and tell them a little bit about what you do on Commandos 3

Ignacio Perez:
I am Ignacio Perez, Pyro Studios director and Commandos 3 designer


GGmania: Can you give us a little background on the development team working on Commandos 3. Is the same team who worked on Commandos 2: Men of Courage?

Ignacio Perez: 75% of the team is Commandos 2 team but with some new people and also some other people like me that worked on the original Commandos BEL but not on the second part.


 


GGmania: You claim, that Commandos 3 should be more action oriented than the previous games in the series. What exactly does it mean?

Ignacio Perez:  It means that we want it to be a movie experience. Lots of different situations, gameplay changes, etc.. Commandos 2 was too much of a linear experience and we want Commandos 3 to be totally different to that.


GGmania:  How many missions will there be, and how much will they differ from one another?

Ignacio Perez: There will be around 20 missions and they will have very different gameplay on them. From the traditional Commandos missions the player will move into countdown missions, ambushes, assaults, destroy everything you can missions or defend the area.


GGmania: What are the biggest gameplay changes in Commandos 3 over the previous games in the series?

Ignacio Perez: Mission design is totally different. Only 20% of the missions will feature a traditional Commandos gameplay style. The rest although with the same rules of Commandos games will have to be played a different way. Would you play the same way a mission where you have to infiltrate the enemy headquarters to missions where you will have to defend your general from the assault of hundreds of enemy paratroopers? Or if for example you are in the middle of Berlin surrounded by hundreds of enemies would you go around shooting everybody or would you try the enemy not to notice that you are there? Or what about leading a patrol of 10 men to take a French village occupied by a panzer division?


GGmania: Which engine is used in Commandos 3?

Ignacio Perez: Over two thirds of the technology, although based on Commandos 2, is new engine. This will allow for higher graphical detail, more enemies on screen, better animations, new explosions and particle systems, new engine for the interiors or beautiful in-game cinematics.


GGmania: In terms of cut-scenes and full-motion videos, what can we expect to see?

Ignacio Perez:
We want to integrate all this work in the game. There will be a number of spectacular in game cut-scenes. Just wait and see.


GGmania: What type of music will be played during the missions?

Ignacio Perez:
The composer of Commandos 3 music is Mateo Pascual same composer of Commandos 2 music. A big effort has been done on the music to build up a soundtrack that really adds a lot of value to the experience. Expect Commandos 3 music to be very cinematographic.


GGmania:  What other gameplay elements in the game do you consider to be important and/or unique?

Ignacio Perez: Deathmatch Multiplayer looks like it is going to be a lot of fun and a big surprise for many people


GGmania: Will the game have a multiplayer mode? If so, what will it include?

Ignacio Perez: As I mention before there will be a multiplayer deathmatch element in Commandos 3 with two or three different gameplay styles in it. We are just balancing it and it looks great.


GGmania: What do you think are the coolest and best aspects of the game?

Ignacio Perez: Gameplay experience. We have put much emphasis on this. We want the player to feel inmerse on Commandos 3 universe and jump from one mission to the next wondering what will come next. Most games get very tedious after the player has played a few missions and all he can expect to come is very similar missions to the ones played before. Commandos 2 was not an exception to this. That is why we want to have a very different mission design on Commandos 3 so there are surprises and changes all along the game.


GGmania: When can we expect to see the game hit store shelves and at what price?

Ignacio Perez: The game will be out by the end of September. The price is not our responsibility and will be decided by Eidos but I guess it will not be very different from Commandos 2.


GGmania: Do you plan to release a playable demo?

Ignacio Perez: Yes. There will be a demo out around one month before release.


GGmania: Thank you for taking the time to answer these questions. Is there anything you want to add that we didn't cover?

Ignacio Perez: Not really. I would just like to thank all Commandos fans for their support on the last 6 years.


genre: tactical strategy

Nice interview. I'm really looking forward to this one... I was very disappointed with the gameplay in Commandos 2, with always the same style...Luckily they noticed this and are fixing this problem... Looks really interesting the whole thing... Demo anncounced, too...what more do we need? (Ok, perhaps our own interview with the Pyros...)

I will hope that it would not be the last episode of commandos series and commandos 4 will also come soon. Commandos 3 will give us a better gamepley as compair to commandos 2 and I will hope that it would be the best of all its episodes in Pakistan and all over the world.

My record in finishing Commandos, Behind Enemy Lines is about 10 hours and Commandos, beyond the call of duty is about 11 hours and Commandos 2 is about 20 hours, that's my record time for Commandos games, i really enjoyed them, very exciting games.... Bye bye...

Niranjan Panditposted - Jun, 30 2003 - 11:38
I liked all the titles in the commandos series. I have played and completed 2 of them many times each time in some different way, thats what sets commmandos apart from all other games. One thing that would make commandos fans mad at the brilliance of the creators is the ability to edit the mission details, :))))) If not all atleast there should be some way to add and/or remove the number of commandos in a mission. I am trying very very hard at my patience till september end

saqib bhattiposted - Jun, 30 2003 - 19:05

Have been waiting for it more than two years, now it is coming..I still can remember the exciting moment when a tough mission was completed silencely, I mean no gun shot but only fist and knife. This is the best RTS game that I've ever touched!

Rudolf Lee of The Peposted - Jul, 11 2003 - 06:36
Yeah, will there be any new playable characters in the game? I think there will be. End of September...i guess i need to hike Mt. Everest for the mean time...LOL! Someone finished a mission in C2:MoC without laying hands on any "Nazi Soldat"--in hard mode! Great interview...we want more! Hey they should feature the "Fall of Bataan" and "The Death March" as bonus missions...hehe...just wanna see my country in the game. Commandos...vanguard of gamers!!
