Cannon Fodder lives! Codemasters announces Cannon Fodder 3 for 360 & PC

leave a comment »

In what could reasonably be described as an announcement that *nobody* saw coming, Codemasters has today announced that developer GFI will revive the long dormant Cannon Fodder franchise with Cannon Fodder 3, which is due to be released on PC & 360.

Originally released way back in 1993 on pretty much every home gaming platform available at the time, the game enjoyed a huge amount of success with its cartoon stylings, satirical humour and top down viewpoint squad action.

The official press release is below:

“Cannon Fodder 3

GFI announce development of the sequel to a well-known tactical action – Cannon Fodder 3
Several military groups of Europe, Asia and Africa have made a military alliance to establish dictatorship by joint efforts. Your goal is to stop them at any cost… Even with a price of thousands lives of soldiers named “cannon fodder”, who are ready to die everywhere and every time it’s needed. ‘Cause it’s their work.

You have a small army which consists of only “cannon fodder” soldiers, who are ready to rush into fight with the enemy, sparing neither effort nor oneself. The player will have to pass several episodes full of cartoon violence among different locations, and the Earth is not the limit – it’s time to go into open space and show the enemy “who’s daddy”.

You’ll get classic isometric environment in full 3D, weather effects, change of time, destructible environment, physical water – all this and a lot more you’ll find in Cannon Fodder 3.

Cannon Fodder 3 is currently under development for PC and Xbox 360 platforms under Codemasters’ license.”

Fucking stoked I be.
