New Gamespot Screens!
Posted @ 4:18 PM || Sharpe novel reader

Some concept art and a a few new in game shots are included in this group of 5 screenshots which can be seen HERE. As usual I had to mop my chin after looking at them!

If you look carefully at the in game screenshot of the army in front of a fortress you can see that they have included proper anti cavalry squares with men facing outwards in all directions :D

The Screenshot of the town also raises a few questions. Will the bridges be buildable as normal buildings or will they be scenario placed features only? Will men be garrisoned in buildings like in AC?

The extreme high quality of these screenshots only make me even more eager to get my hands on the game, I just can't wait!!!

A new article on Cossacks II has appeared at Gamespot, containing their impressions of the game as they saw it at E3. Excerpt:"Cossacks II will feature an all-new 3D engine that will allow for weather effects (such as rain and snow) and 3D terrain..."

Sounds good, doesn't it?

Posted @ 6:38 AM || Sharpe novel reader

Gamespy also has some AC Addon screens which you can see HERE whilst no where near as impressive as the Cossacks II screenies they are still pretty amazing and show us a good outline for a great expansion pack to a truly superb game



Cossacks II Screenshots!
Posted @ 6:35 AM || Sharpe novel reader

What else can I say to these sweet babies from Gamespy except "SWEEEEET!". These new screenshots are pure proof that the guys at GSC are on their way to making another truly wicked game. By the looks of things GSC is incorporating night and day into the game as their seems to be a night time screenie of a french cannon crew. My favourite however is the screenie of the city

Updates!
Posted @ 6:13 AM || Sharpe novel reader

I've reorganised the E3 screenshots from last year now so that they are in the proper place in the AC media section. To visit them click HERE. As you can see from the nav bar we have a MOD1 section coming up. For some reason the page is restricted but that should be sorted out soon along with the glitch we have in the nav bar!
