Cossacks 3 is a massive RTS title that is based in the 17th and 18th century. The game boasts the ability to have massive 32,000 unit armies, to play as 16 different nations from around the world, 100 different topics of research to learn and over 180 historical landmarks to build in your city. It’s a truly massive game that mixes history and video games like few ever could. But now, they’re making the game even more massive via the Cossacks 3: Guardians of the Highlands mini expansion.
This special expansion will release on Steam on April 11th, and if the name didn’t give it away, it will feature the arrival of Scotland to the title. Along with the nation, you’ll get special units and other unique items that can only be found in this expansion. For example, they will have their own campaign via the expansion that details the battles that the Scottish battle had in the 17th and 18th century in order to secure their freedom on the world stage. You’ll get to control these battles too.
In these Scotsman battles, you’ll get to control nine new units that are coming to the expansion that are tied to the nation, including clansman and Highlanders. Use them wisely to obtain your freedom. Plus, the nation gets its own sounds via a brand new soundtrack edition, thus making the nation very unique in sight and in sound.
That’s not the only addition to the game, as the team is readying more features too, such as a special AI Assistant that’ll help you manage your nation so you can focus on other things. This has been something fans have asked for in many RTS games, as managing everything can be overwhelming to some.
Check back for Cossacks 3: Guardians of the Highlands on Steam on April 11th.
