At the first Gamescom Opening Night Live show, publisher THQ Nordic took the stage to reveal that the beloved series from the 1990s Comanche will be returning with a new installment on the way for a near future release date.
Unlike other world premieres that took place at the presentation in Cologne, developer Nukklear Digital Minds alongside the game’s announcement also shown off some gameplay of the upcoming title. Fans of the series might have remembered the air time havoc that you can bring in the older titles on PC and it seems the same experience is promised to be reintroduced for the upcoming title which is releasing for modern hardware.
Looking back at the previous games, the last entry that was released dated back to 2001 with Comache 4: so it is appreciated THQ Nordic has decided to have the franchise return for new minds to indulge in for the classic series. Although, the game does differ with the modern addition of drones so helicopter will be used for large scale battles while the miniature hovercrafts will be used for close-quarter fights.
Atop of the title’s reveal, THQ Nordic also shared that a private alpha will be taking place sometime at an unspecified date. Those who are interested can sign-up for the alpha on the game’s website here.
Comache is currently listed for an Early Access release in Q1 2020.
