Update Forum Post


Stronghold Crusader 2: The Templar & The Duke

The law of the Templar is coming to the desert! The Templar & The Duke DLC adds a new Crusader Trail campaign and two AI characters with contrasting origins, values and strengths. One is a brutal newcomer who embodies the Crusades' nebulous motivations, while the other stands as successor to King Phillip from the original Stronghold Crusader. Both men desire a glorious victory in the Holy Land, with The Templar seeking to cleanse the holy land of heretics and The Duke hoping to emerge from Phillip's shadow and make his mark on the world, ideally without suffering too many casualties!

The third expansion for Stronghold Crusader 2, The Templar & The Duke adds seven missions, two AI opponents, 10 achievements, five custom shields and new castle types unique to these new Lords. It is now available for £3.99/$5.99/€4.99, with an additional 33% off for the next seven days!

New Campaign

The fierce combat in our latest skirmish trail sets a challenging new benchmark for Stronghold players. New characters arrive in the deserts of the Holy Land brimming with personality, grit and their own selfish quests to pursue. The madcap eccentricity of The Duke will scatter your senses, conventional sieges often failing to penetrate his elaborate segmented castles with unconventional layouts. Meanwhile cold steel and sturdy resistance await those who dare challenge The Templar, who recruits only the toughest Crusader soldiers into his army and rigidly-designed castles. This ninth skirmish trail demands a completely new set of strategies from players. Carefully safeguard allies, fend off bandit outposts while keeping an eye on your real opponents and eventually fight your way up a mountain to conquer our toughest final mission yet.

The Templar

Once a rank and file soldier in King Richard’s army, The Templar has since risen to power as a senior military commander in the Third Crusade. Even more resolute toward their righteous cause than his king, The Templar was promoted because of his brutal pursuit of the holy crusade and ability to indoctrinate fellow soldiers. Spending much of his military career as a foot soldier fighting in the Crusades, The Templar sees himself as a harbinger of justice from God. The Templar personifies the unwavering conviction that the Crusader Lords have in their mission and the lengths they will go to achieve it.

The Duke

Having traveled from France to 'fight the good fight' The Duke hopes to share in the glory of the holy crusade, should it succeed. In the event that the Crusaders should fail The Duke is always ready to retreat claiming he played no role in Richard's campaign, but for the moment he is present and prepared to lend his vast wealth and political standing to their cause. Blessed with a God-given right to rule, it goes without saying that The Duke had a pampered upbringing in the French Royal Court. It was here that he became the foppish and arrogant leader he is now, sheltered enough to build up a Lordly air and appearance but too distant from the battlefield or real cutthroat politics to become an effective ruler. The end result is a man who appears confident but is unsure of himself, joining the Third Crusade because he feels he has something to prove.

Performance Update

New Optimisations Incoming

We’re happy to announce that the first in a new series of optimisation updates has just been released for Stronghold Crusader 2!

Development geared towards improving performance has been ongoing for some time now. Recently we reached a point where these changes could be merged into the main game code and released as an update for all players to enjoy. Today's update includes numerous ‘under the hood’ improvements, but we’ve highlighted the most noticeable ones below:

  • Frame Rate - CPU load has been reduced and frame rates improved, particularly in the case of machines with low specs or slower single-core performance. Most machines will see a modest improvement in frame rates in large games, many will see a large improvement.

  • Multiplayer – Low spec machines that were struggling in large games will now hold better frame rates and remain responsive for players. The game server will also slow down when necessary, allowing clients to stay in sync. We are still hard at work tuning this area, so expect future optimisation updates to improve performance.

  • Multi-Core CPUs - Work has been done to run more tasks in secondary threads and make better use of multiple CPU cores, removing periodic roadblocks from single core execution and overhead from the main game process.

We’ve also made improvements to several major systems: Change Log

As mentioned above today's update is the first in a new series of optimisation updates due for release in 2015. In addition to numerous additional optimisations currently being worked on, which unfortunately did not make the cut-off point for this release, we plan to build on the progress made thus far and address other areas based on player feedback. As a sim and an RTS, Stronghold Crusader 2 simulates and tracks tens of thousands of objects and many game systems at any one time. We will continue work to reduce the high demand this puts on players’ CPUs, particularly in multiplayer.

Thanks for your support and we hope you enjoy the new update!

Please Note: This update should download automatically when you launch the Steam client. Check the version number displayed in the bottom left corner of the main menu screen when launching the game. If the number displayed is not v1.0.21397 please restart Steam until the update downloads.

Sobre este jogo



Stronghold Crusader 2 é a tão aguardada sequência para Stronghold: Crusader, o "simulador de castelo" original. Depois de 12 anos, Stronghold retorna para os desertos do Oriente Médio, por volta do ano 1189, com uma nova engine 3D e destruição de castelo realística usando o poder da Havok Physics. Crusader 2 vai trazer de volta a jogabilidade viciante e ágil e simulação de castelo autêntica, vista no jogo original.

Mantendo-se fiel as suas raízes, este novo Stronghold vai definir o gênero de estratégia em tempo real clássico, combinando elementos de RTS com construtor de cidade. Jogando como o brutal Cavaleiro Cruzado ou como lutador da liberdade Árabe, você vai precisar usar uma seleção brutal de tropas e equipamento de cerco destruidores para decidir o destino das terras santas. Lidere suas forças na batalha como Ricardo Coração de Leão ou o Sultão da Síria, em duas campanhas individuais históricas, com eventos dinâmicos como tornados e enxames de gafanhotos. Torne-se o maior dos Senhores ao gerenciar sua economia no deserto e tomar posse de oásis vitais.



Para dominar o campo de batalhar, você vai precisar comandar mais de 25 tipos únicos de unidades, dominando suas habilidades especiais. Aumente a moral com Sargento de Armas, use Arqueiros para lançar uma salva de flechas or escale as paredes do castelo com o mortal assassino. Assim que suas habilidades forem aperfeiçoadas, coloque-as a teste no modo escaramuça ou leve a batalha para o modo online com até 8 jogadores humanos e IA. Crie times, escolha oponentes IA diferentes e crie seu próprio mapa neste jogo multiplayer ou skirmish definitivo.



  • Construa o castelo definitivo - Crie fortalezas poderosas e encha-as de armadilhas diabólicas para aniquilar seus inimigos!
  • Modo Skirmish - Sitie seu inimigos em partidas skirmish personalizadas contra a IA.
  • Multiplayer com 8 jogadores - Misture e combine jogadores humanos e IA, mapas e modos de jogo para criar seu jogo multiplayer ideal.
  • Enfrente vários Lordes IA - Lute contra personagens IA clássicos com diferentes personalidades, castelos e estilos de jogo.
  • Desafie o Caminho Cruzado - Teste seu valor ao longo de uma campanha skirmish com dificuldade crescente.
  • Modo Cooperativo - Divida controle sobre seu castelo, tropas e recursos no modo cooperativo.
  • Sandbox de Castelos - Mergulhe no Editor de Mapas ou Modo De Construção Livre e construa o castelo definitivo sem medo de ataques.

I'm realy disappointed from FireFly's SHC2 :( ... and this again after SH3 :(
First i thought "Ok its new on the market. This lags and bugs are normal and will be fixed in the next upcoming patchs"
But FireFly give a sh!t to fix this lags :/
The multiplayer is realy unplayable if there are 4 players having max. buildings and troops.
After 1/2 year they still didnt fix this lags ..... realy realy sad. I had so much hope.. I was waiting sooo long with my review but now i cant wait anymore. They started with DLC's and forget about the big problems this game have :(

This game is again a fail cause the prgrammers dont have enought skill to get this game working.
Again a waste of money :(
If you want to play this game in multiplayer then forget about it. It's not the money worth.
Singleplayer is somehow better playable then mp.

By the way. I have an intel E3 1231, Nvidia GTX 770 (4GB), SSD and 8 GB RAM. So my machine is not to slow to run this game with its low and old graphic^^

I was a die hard original stronghold fan and after playing SH3 decided to never touch this series again, saying that my die hard fan part took over because lets face it stronghold was boss back in the day. So I ponied up to buy this game to give it a chance, the real question here is how the ♥♥♥♥ did they ♥♥♥♥ this game up so bad? I mean I'm impressed, I dont think their is anything more that they could have done to make this game any worse!!!

Lag, bugs, complete economic balance meltdowns, more lag, more bugs, complete military balance meltdowns, more bugs for days. Take your pick, the entire game dynamic has been ♥♥♥♥ed to the point were you will feel mentally ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ whilst trying to execute anything in this game.

The sad part is that they took stronghold which was a completely enjoyable game and churned out this steaming pile of ♥♥♥♥, a game nobody would play for more than 30 minutes if they werent trying to give it the chance to be half as good as the originals.

If you are thinking of buying this game my advice to you would be to spend your money on a big bag of ♥♥♥♥♥ as you will probably enjoy owning a bag of ♥♥♥♥♥ more than this game!
