Cossacks: Back to War ships

CDV ships a new version of Cossacks that includes the original game and the expansion and adds two playable nations.


CDV has announced the release of Cossacks: Back to War, a compilation that includes the original Cossacks game, the expansion, and some new features. Back to War has two new playable nations, Switzerland and Hungary, and new single-player missions. It also adds some new elements to online play, notably a spectator feature that allows players to watch online games in progress and an automatic player-matching system for ranked matches.

"The pageantry and the human drama surrounding European wars during the 16th to 18th centuries vividly come to life with Cossacks: Back to War," said Robert Pickens, CEO of CDV USA.

Cossacks: Back to War has a suggested price of $39.99. CDV is distributing the game directly in the US, unlike the original game, which was published by Strategy First. For more details, check out our previous coverage of the Cossacks games.
