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. For more information about Cossacks
