This generation has seen a bunch of classic games made for remakes, and another is on the way this Spring on Switch. This time Deadly Dozen Reloaded is providing an update on a 2001 tactical shooter game in which you lead a team of 4 soldiers through tough World War 2 encounters.
Formerly a PC-only title, this revamp gives us a long overdue console debut, although the original has had mixed reception from critics. . The core gameplay is the same but significant improvements are promised elsewhere.
Choose your team of four from a list of twelve playable characters, each with unique stats, weapons, and gear to accomplish critical objectives behind enemy lines. Players can tailor their squad to their preferred playstyle, whether that means they want to be completely stealthy, focus on the run and shoot action, or make some noise with the raids. Big, devastating explosion. Players command their units with the Squad Wheel, which they can use to dictate moves, fire commands, stances, and change formations to adapt to challenges in the field. Additionally, direct control is never limited to just one of the four team members, as players can swap out their playable character at any time.
While the structure of Deadly Dozen Reloaded remains the same as the original release, level content, textures and character models have been rebuilt from the ground up. Real-time lighting, high-quality particle effects and other environmental effects have been added to give the game a realistic feel. The PC version will support resolutions up to 4K with no frame rate limitation, while the console will run at 1080p and 30fps. Audio has been enhanced to include much higher fidelity samples, real-time audio effects such as reverb and snooze, 3D surround sound, and support for 5.1 or higher speaker configurations.
We expected this to have a good amount of retro AI and jank, but the concept is certainly appealing. We’ll be keeping an eye on more details to share closer to the Spring release.
