What features are in AC?

From GSC Game World:

”We wanted to underline that economy and construction elements will be decreased if compared to those of Cossacks. Players should not spend that much time on an economy (that is, obviously, to control peasants and extract resources manually). There will be no need to fill the map with houses, for there will be fortresses with all necessary buildings inside. The essence of the game is military operations. We are planning to implement more advanced tactical models. Each military force will use several formations (there would be cavalry in addition to Cossacks' infantry and artillery). Naturally, each formation has advantages and disadvantages. Thus military forces structures will be very close to that of real armies, for players should command over columns, ranks, squares, and batteries just as real commanders do. Each detachment will have its standard bearer. Units will be able to accumulate experience. Formations can be made of any number of troops, not fixed as it was in Cossacks. Simple formations may be combined to create bigger ones. Also there would be a possibility to get into the buildings and defend them, the same applies to fortresses. We agree that 16.000 units may be a great mess on the map, but the game grants possibilities for structured accurate unit control, so that they will not roam around"

What types of defensive structures are there?

Forts, fortresses and log cabins but also any type of buildings (mill, storage house, etc.) can be defended if you have units inside.

How far into development is AC?

AC has been released in all major countries
