CDV has announced that Cossacks II has gone gold. It's a good thing too because my original Cossacks game was getting tired of being the only thing in my cdrom for sometime. What an amazing game... only to get better I hope.

CDV Announces Cossacks II: Napoleonic Wars Goes Gold

CDV Software Entertainment today announced that Cossacks II: Napoleonic Wars, the sequel to its critically acclaimed real-time strategy title, Cossacks: European Wars, has gone gold and is scheduled to ship in North America on April 26. Cossacks II will put gamers in control of one of six 19th-century nations as they wage war, secure alliances and work to economically and militarily defeat their opponents to become the dominant European power. With an enhanced 3D graphics engine, more than 150 unit types and a realistic troop morale system, Cossacks II: Napoleonic Wars will challenge armchair emperors to prove their mettle as they fight historical and historically inspired battles on an epic scale.

In development by GSC Gameworld, Cossacks II: Napoleonic Wars expands upon everything that gamers enjoyed about the original Cossacks: European Wars, which has sold over 2.5 million units to date. In Cossacks II, gamers will take on the roles of diplomat, warrior and economist as the leader of one of six nations as they expand their empires through treaties, truncheons and treasuries. Utilizing an attractive 3D engine, the game will allow for tens of thousands of units to be onscreen simultaneously, as armies battle in sweeping landscapes featuring more than 1,000 types of realistic flora and fauna.
