CDV have announced that the Cossacks are to return, as they go Back to War in an all new expansion pack, which is due for release next month.


Cossacks: Back to War will work as both an add-on to the previous titles, and also on it's own, meaning if you've not experienced the Cossacks series before, then this'll be your ideal opportunity to get a part of the action.

The pack will feature over 100 new single player missions, along with a bonus 'Mod1' which has another 30 new missions for the original Cossacks title. Other features of the Back to War pack will include the addition of Switzerland and Hungary in the antics, taking the number of European nations that you can control up to twenty countries.


Online play has also been greatly improved, with the new VIZOR system that let's gamers watch multiplayer games in progress, and an "Automated Championship System" which helps to promote Cossacks tournaments and run the worldwide ranking system.

Earlier this week CDV announced that the series had received the ELSPA Silver Sales Award, after Cossacks sold more than 100,000 units in the UK since the launch of European Wars back in March 2001.

Cossacks: Back to War is due for release in October, priced at 19.99.
