Determinism beta update

Greetings Commandos,

Just released an experimental update to the game that allows you to replay your last mission. Now you can relive the epic speed-runs and embarrassing versus battles with your friends in slow motion!

Simply open the “High Score” menu and choose the “Replay” option to enjoy the footage of your last mission or versus match. Playback speed can be controlled using the D-Pad or the arrow keys.

Huge thanks and shoutouts to Tosac and TrapGod for helping us translate 8-Bit Commando to Danish and Romanian!

Let us know in the comments what additional features you would like to see!
