There is a noticeable increase in graphical quality in Commandos 2.

 

In Commandos 2, players will take control of a highly trained and motivated group of commandos who are tasked with going into enemy territory and finish tough missions with their combined expertise.

Commandos 2 will feature a reworked tutorial, 10 missions in 9 different environments that span day and night, and WWII vehicles and weapons such as jeeps, trucks, ships, bazookas, flamethrowers, and tanks. The player will be able to utilize nine different commandos, including a thief, sniper, demolitions expert, diver, seductress, and a green beret.

This doesn't look amazing, but it is a noticeable increase in quality compared to the original Praetorians.

In Praetorians, players will take their place in the surging Roman Empire by fighting in Egypt, Gaul, and Italy in their crusade to become Emperor. Players will need to combine their units, utilize different skillsets, and exploit the enemy in order to emerge victorious. However, the closer the player gets to their goal, the closer they come to facing the titular Praetorian Guard.

Praetorians features over 20 campaign missions, different terrains and landscapes, reworked controls and UI, and different abilities and formations. The game will have online multiplayer as well, just in case you want to see how good of an Emperor you really are.

Praetorians and Commandos 2 will release in Q4 2019 for Windows PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, with Commandos 2 also releasing on Mac, Linux, iPad, and Android tablets, and the Nintendo Switch.
