Plot

The action takes place between the 16th and 18th century, when countries such as England, France, Spain, Portugal, Saxony, Prussia, Russia, Venice, Austria, Turkey, and Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth were superpowers that shaped the entire Europe and the fate of many lesser nations.

Mechanics

The game provides a large variety in terms of the available campaigns as well as the places where they occur. In total, there are 33 missions within four campaigns and 12 historical missions, for example, the Thirty Years’ War. Cossacks features practically the entire Europe. We can lead one of 16 nations, each of which has unique traits, units (there are over 80 in total), technology (over 300 enhancements in the invention system), architecture, and so on. As every other modern production, the title offers division into game modes, so we can play both solo and in a multiplayer mode for up to 8 players over a LAN or the Internet. What’s interesting, up to 8000 units can take part in a battle at the same time. Moreover, the game comes with a random map generator that lets us set many parameters like terrain type, amount of resources, and so on.

The game supports the maximum screen resolution of 1600x1200. The production also has a built-in history encyclopedia of Europe of the 16th, 17th, and 18th century.
