New Cossacks campaign available now

To celebrate the imminent UK release of Cossacks: Back to War, CDV is giving away a new campaign for use with Cossacks: The Art of War.


CDV Software Entertainment has today announced that to celebrate tomorrow's release of Cossacks: Back to War in the UK it is giving away a new campaign entitled Enemy of the Crown, which requires a copy of the previous expansion, Cossacks: The Art of War , to run. The campaign, which weighs in at around 13MB, can be downloaded from the official Cossacks Web site or, for GameSpot Complete members, from the link below.

Cossacks: Enemy of the Crown, which has previously been available only as part of individual media promotions, is based on true historical events that took place between 1740 and 1764 in the corrupt Tsar-ruled Russia. "Although obviously not a full expansion pack in the sense that Back to War is, it's an accomplished campaign which easily reminds Cossacks players why they fell in love with the game in the first place," said Leo Zullo, marketing manager for CDV Software Entertainment UK. "And then they can check out Back to War, which is bigger and better in every respect."

Cossacks: Back to War is the second expansion pack for the original Cossacks: The Art of War real-time strategy game that was released last year, although it's a stand-alone game, meaning that players won't require a copy of the original game to play it. The game will be available in the UK tomorrow but isn't scheduled for release in North America until January 2003. For more information, check out our Cossacks: The Art of War of the game.
