March 17th, 2006 - It's time for a return to 19th century Europe, as CDV will publish Cossacks II: Battle for Europe this June. The stand-alone expansion for the popular PC RTS, Cossacks II: Napoleonic Wars, will feature three new nations, along with a variety of new battlegrounds, campaigns and battle scenarios, both historical and hypothetical. For more information, please visit www.cossacks.com.

In development by GSC Game World, Cossacks II: Battle for Europe will build upon the realism of the original game, along with adding a variety of new gameplay features. In the game, players can choose from nine nations, including three new additions - Spain, the Great Duchy of Warsaw and the Rhine Confederation. Additionally, 10 new battlefields, four new campaigns, six new skirmish missions and three new historical battles (Waterloo, Leipzig and Borodino) will offer an expanded Cossacks experience in both single- and multiplayer play. An improved A.I. will let players develop deep strategies utilizing real-world formations made famous during the Napoleonic Wars. New enhancements to the Battle for Europe mode will have fans playing the role of economist, diplomat and general to become the supreme ruler of 19th century Europe. Battle for Europe, Battle and Skirmish modes will all be playable online over LAN or the Internet.
