  • Add-On Update
    Posted @ 4:14 PM || Cherub Weezul

    It seems that in the upcoming Add-On for Cossacks, there may be a special fortified tower for sea maps. This feature is currently being tested and may or may not be included. Also, GSC is tweaking the paramaters of cannons. They will be more expensive, and will also be more effective against ships. Thanks a lot to SpitfireVII for forwarding this my way.
