Jon Hare’s classic blow-em-up Cannon Fodder is to return for a third outing, it has been announced.
In development with Russian firm GFI and under licence from Codemasters, Cannon Fodder 3 will see some marked changes over the previous titles.
The classic isometric maps will now be in 3D with weather effects, water, destructible environments and time.
Releasing the news, GFI said: “”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’.”
Cannon Fodder 3 will launch for PC and Xbox 360. A release date has yet to be announced.
