Bethesda announces a new Commander Keen game


Bethesda has announced a new Commander Keen game for iOS and Android.

It's free-to-play and from ZeniMax Online Studios, the maker of The Elder Scrolls Online.

Commander Keen is a side-scrolling platform series created by Doom maker id Software. It's been dormant for years. Now it's back.

Here's the official blurb:

"It's time to kick some asteroid! Commander Keen returns in an all-new mobile adventure from ZeniMax Online Studios. Play as Billy and his twin sister Billie as they race to save the galaxy with their zany collection of gadgets and a whole lot of attitude."

The person on-stage during Bethesda's E3 2019 media briefing who announced Commander Keen said "helmet to helmet". Expect a soft launch this summer.
