It’s been a long time since Cossacks laid siege to historical warfare--well over a decade, in fact--but it looks to make a triumphant march back to home computers on September 20. Billed as a remake of the classic game, Cossacks 3 will retain the elements that set apart the RTS franchise and combine them with modern 3D graphics.
You’ll construct buildings, gather raw materials, and recruit units as you strategize for success in combat, making sure to remember the battlefield and how the landscape will affect your efforts. You’ll be able to take control of twelve nations and 70 unit types, and over 100 research points and 140 historical buildings are available for your war effort.

You can take command in five historic single-player campaigns, or challenge other human opponents in multiplayer matches for up to eight players. Not only will your armies march against each other on land, you can also build armadas for epic naval combat.
Cossacks 3 will launch on September 20 for PC. Developer GSC Game World created both the original titles and this new entry, but they are perhaps better known to gamers today as the creators of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. franchise.
