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
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
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
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.

|Niranjan Pandit||posted - 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|

|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 Pe||posted - 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.
