Quazal, makers of the Net-Z and Rendez-Vous online multiplayer middleware, and Eidos Interactive, a developer and publisher of interactive entertainment content, announced that the upcoming Commandos Strike Force
will be powered by Quazal technology to provide online multiplayer gaming.
Commandos Strike Force
, which is in development for Xbox, PlayStation 2 and PC, according to its official site, is the fourth game in the Commandos
series developed by Pyro Studios. With Strike Force
, the series has received a major overhaul and is now an FPS, while still retaining the basic Commandos
concepts. With online play powered by Quazal’s Net-Z and lobby services provided through Quazal Rendez-Vous, Commandos
Strike Force will feature a number of original online play modes.
The Net-Z technology used in Commandos Strike Force
allows Pyro Studios to focus their efforts on building gameplay, rather than dealing with low-level networking, while Rendez-Vous gives Eidos an online solution as Quazal handles all hosting duties and other issues of online game development such as NAT traversal.
