Cossacks 3 shows off old style diplomacy in a new teaser video

By - | Views: 12,494
I am really excited to play Cossacks 3 as I love real time strategy games, and the graphics do look great. This new video is a bit of fun showing off "diplomacy".

Linux is still listed at platform, so with any luck it will be a day-1 release.

Having another high quality RTS will only improve our image, and I've never played a Cossacks game before so it's quite exciting for me. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

I can't believe the red army didn't see that ambush a mile away (or 3) :D

I do LOVE <3 RTS games! What do you mean by "another" RTS? I don't know ANY major RTS on Linux apart from the (still buggy) 0a.d. which I do love! I'm not sure though if I'll Cossacks - I just don't knot the game. I'm happy to see a day 1 release!

I think that I will need people to explain me why they like strategy games so much... :|
I have tried so far everything that is out, Civilization, Total War: ATTILA, Crusader Kings,Europa Universalis and so on...

So what is so special ? :o?

Well we have the Planetary Annihilation games and Company of Heroes 2 which are two traditional ones, but I meant "another" as in we will actually have another.

If that's all you're going by, then you're probably not into those types which are all similar. Traditional "RTS" games are quite different.

Yes, turn based is NOT my kind of strategy to be honest! That's what I do love RTS! Actually I'm missing some kind of AAA Starcraft II replacement with a nice Multiplayer and Matchmaking - it would need to be AAA to be Competetive and having enough opponents for Quick Match.

Planetary Annihilation is somehow very special. I tried it but it's not my kind of game. Did they fix all the issues in newer versions? It was so hyped in the past but I did not enjoy playing it. Company of Heroes 2 is not my setting. I'm not into world war settings too much. Still all that counts only to me ...

I'd love to see 0a.d. making better progress. Gonna join them developing!? ;)

I'd completely forgotten this was coming out on Linux. Nice to be reminded :)

Played a lot of one of the old games years back and enjoyed it, can't remember which it was though.

There's a huge difference between RTS and board or turn-based strategy. Comparing Civilization to something like Dawn of War II which is also coming out is comparing apples to oranges.

Linux hardly has any RTS games. I'm not sure about how good Cossacks 3 is, but Dawn of War II (and hopefully III as well) will be a very welcome addition to Linux gaming.

You also have Wargame series from Eugen Systems. Sadly they did not release Act of Aggression which uses the same engine... :'(
