Invasions Update & DLC Dated

April 22nd – Invasions Update

Our next big update for Stronghold Crusader 2, the Invasions Update will release next week on Wednesday 22nd April. Adding AI invasions to Sandbox mode, Easy Mode and Faction selection for Skirmish Trail missions, as well as two Sandbox maps and four skirmish maps, the Invasions Update has plenty to offer:

  • Invasions (Sandbox Mode) – Designed to beef up the free-building Sandbox mode, invasions allow players to find out just how impregnable their mighty castles are by launching increasingly powerful attacks against them.

  • Easy Mode (Skirmish Trails) – A popular request among those new to the series, this update will introduce an easier difficulty setting for the game’s punishing Skirmish Trail missions.

  • Faction Selection (Skirmish Trails) – Another oft-requested feature, players will soon be able to select between Crusader and Arabic factions in Skirmish Trail missions.

  • New Sandbox Maps – Two peaceful new lands on which to build your dream castle, before pummeling it into the sand with wave after wave of AI sieges.

  • New Skirmish Maps - Four new battlegrounds for you to mark with the blood of your enemies, online or offline.

May 6th – The Emperor & The Hermit DLC

The Angel of Death hovers over your castle! The Emperor & The Hermit DLC will introduce two new AI opponents and an all-new Crusader Trail campaign. Spiritual successors to The Emperor and The Abbot from Stronghold Crusader HD, The Emperor and The Hermit are driven entirely by religious fervour. Backed by zealots who follow their cause without question, be it just or corrupt, these new characters represent a dangerous new threat to both sides of the Crusader conflict.

The next expansion for Stronghold Crusader 2, this new DLC adds seven missions, two AI opponents, achievements, additional player shields and new castle designs unique to The Emperor and The Hermit. The Emperor & The Hermit will be released on May 6th for £3.99/$5.99/€4.99.

Please look forward to more information on the characters, maps and new features found in the DLC and our free 'Invasions Update' in the next few weeks. We will be revealing one map per day, in addition to video features and more!

Out Now: The Princess & The Pig DLC

New Missions, AI Opponents and Castle Designs

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-UwjGRE7Gf0

http://store.steampowered.com/app/348990

Blow the horn, bang the drum, The Pig is coming to town! The Princess & The Pig DLC resurrects one of four central antagonists from the original Stronghold (2001) in a brand new Crusader Trail, while also introducing a completely new character in the form of the noble Princess. The first piece of downloadable content available for Stronghold Crusader 2, The Princess & The Pig adds seven new missions, two AI opponents, 10 achievements and new castle designs unique to the two extra characters. It is now available for £3.99/$5.99/€4.99, with an additional 33% off for the next seven days!

New Missions

The Princess and The Pig have embarked for the holy lands bringing swords, spears and maces in a journey destined to disrupt the balance of power. Players must fight their way through a new skirmish trail with seven deadly scenarios to tackle, including three new maps. Old faces such as The Wolf, Richard the Lionheart and Saladin also make a return, smarter and more strategic than before. While these new rivals sometimes aid the player in battle, they won’t hold back when it comes to the gruesomely difficult finale.

New Characters

The Pig

Starved by an abusive father as an infant, it wasn't long before The Pig ran away from home and joined up with a group of bandits in the English backcountry. After proving himself in a series of early raids The Pig quickly rose to lead this band of brigands, claiming the finest spoils from each skirmish as his own. He soon took to overeating, becoming morbidly overweight and using this newfound size to intimidate his enemies. Despite this chequered past The Wolf eventually managed to secure The Pig a Dukedom, after which he became The Wolf's personal enforcer on the battlefield. Although the two often work as a team, The Pig fears The Wolf just as much as he did his own father.

The Princess

While The Pig was effectively raised by bandits, raiding nobles in the English countryside, The Princess is a very different character born into privilege. Her position in the royal court has meant she spent her entire life with nothing to prove. Fortunately for her growing up in high society has left The Princess with a powerful sense of self-reliance and confidence, sorely lacking in certain other Lords and Ladies. After solidifying her place and influence in the royal court, The Princess is now determined to prove her worth as a commander on the battlefield. This drive makes her every bit as fearless and proud a military leader as any male heir to the throne.

Om dette spil

Stronghold Crusader 2 is the long awaited sequel to Stronghold: Crusader, the original 'castle sim'. After 12 years Stronghold returns to the deserts of the Middle East circa 1189, with a new 3D engine and realistic castle destruction powered by Havok Physics. Crusader 2 will recapture the original game’s addictive, fast-paced gameplay and authentic castle simulation.

True to its roots this new Stronghold will define old school real time strategy, combining RTS and city builder gameplay. Playing as a brutal Crusader Knight or Arabic freedom fighter, you must use a deadly array of troops and destructive siege equipment to decide the fate of the holy lands. Lead your forces into battle as either Richard the Lionheart or the Sultan of Syria in two historic single-player campaigns, with dynamic events such as tornados and locust swarms. Become the greatest Lord by managing your desert economy and seizing control of vital oases.

To dominate the battlefield you will need to command more than 25 unique unit types, mastering their special abilities. Raise morale with the Sergeant at Arms, charge in with the Sassanid Knight, use Archers to launch an arrow volley or scale castle walls with the deadly Assassin. Once your skills have been perfected put them to the test in skirmish mode or take the battle online with up to eight human and AI players. Create teams, choose different AI opponents and design your own map in the ultimate skirmish or multiplayer game!

Key Features


  • Build the Ultimate Castle - Design mighty strongholds and fill them with fiendish traps to crush your enemies!
  • Skirmish Mode - Lay siege to your enemies in fast-paced custom skirmish matches against the AI.
  • 8 Player Multiplayer - Mix and match human and AI players, maps and game modes to set up your ideal multiplayer game.
  • Battle a Wide Range of AI Lords - Classic AI characters return alongside new blood, each with distinct personalities, castles and play styles.
  • Challenge the Crusader Trail - Test your mettle across a range of increasingly tough skirmish campaigns.
  • Co-op Play - Share control over castle building, troop control and resource management in Co-op Mode.
  • Castle Sandbox - Dive into the Map Editor or Free Build mode and construct the ultimate castle without fear of attack.

Brace yourselves for a lenghty rant-sort-of-review.
Or just scroll down and read the summary.

Being a fan of the original Stronghold and Stronghold Crusader, it makes me sad to report that this game does not continue in the right path that was set by those two games.
The worst thing about this game are not bad visuals, glitches, unbalanced and unfair skirmish trails or even the opposing lords with paper-thin personalities (yes, even when compared to the older games' lords). The worst thing about this game is that it is not fun. Even if you're a veteran player like myself, who really tried to like the game, you have a high chance of wasting your money on this product.

Why is it not fun?
First of all, the "castle-sim" aspect that was the best thing Stronghold series had to offer is gone. Forget about witty comments when you click on your peasants, forget about fear factor and any kind of happiness management. All you have left is ale and religion, and population management was simplified so its only real purpose is to increase your taxation.


Second thing, the AI cheats. Literally. Stronghold Crusader was a hard but fair game. But this game will make you drop it when you realize how unfair it is. The sieges have been dumbed down to massive tank rushes (btw, no more ladders, siege towers and tunnelers). You think crippling the enemy's economy and destroying key structures used in building the army will stop him from recruiting more troops? Think again. The AI will always pull out more soldiers, even when you destroy their barracks, armory and mercenary post. Oh, and they get walls, siege engines and weapons for free.


Technical side of the game is not much better. The graphic quality would barely pass in 2007, and the engine is poorly optimized so expect severe FPS drops unless you have a monster machine. The FPS tends to drop the most during sieges, as there tend to be hundreds of soldiers, and a lot of wall demolishing.



Summary:

Stronghold Crusader 2 is a bad game, whether you're a veteran of the franchise or a total newcomer.
If you want a superb castle-sim, with plenty of humour, good AI, interesting opponents, great art style and 2d graphics and compact and fair gameplay - play Stronghold Crusader HD. This game will not satisfy you, unless you're ready to overlook the game's many problems. But beware, there's not much else to see.

No, it's not the world's best sequel - the amount of stuff added to this game in comparison to crusader 1 is minimal, which is sort of upsetting considering this game has come out 12 years after its' predecessor. However, I do not find my money wasted on this game. As a fan of the stronghold series and a proud owner of all the games (save one that I'm not too proud of...you can guess which), I will happily say that this game is the first stronghold game to not be a total waste of your time since 2002 with crusader 1 itself. On top of that, I highly recommend buying this if for nothing else than supporting the small indie studio Firefly Studios in hopes that, now without their 2K publisher forcing release dates on them, we can begin to see some proper sequels in the stronghold lineup to recover from...a troubling past, to say the least. Perhaps a stronghold 4, or even the possibility of a Legends 2 (Don't kill me, we all know somewhere inside we want a better legends :D)

With gamespy down, this is also the only remaining stronghold game besides the abysmal pile that was stronghold 3 to have functional multiplayer without the assistance of a 3rd party tool that can sometimes, to inexperienced users, be a large pain in the ♥♥♥ to use properly. So for crusader multiplayer with ease, this runs through the steam servers allowing you to simply invite your friends and such as you would for Team Fortress 2 or something.

Buy this to support firefly and enjoy the first stronghold game in 12 years to not suck right out of the box...or download in this case. And if not, do yourself at least the favor of, if you don't already, going and purchasing Stronghold HD and Stronghold Crusader HD on steam or GoG.com or somewhere - those 2 games, alongside this one, will not fail to give you hours of fun.

Do you want a castle sim? Do you want that medieval atmosphere of Stronhold 1? Dealing with famine, diseases, economy and war? Well, my friend, then you are in luck! .... For this is not the game you are looking for!

I get that the devs gave it a shot. The game has a heart. As someone who throughout the year followed firefly studios, it is clear that it is now but a shadow of what it used to be. With very little resources they wanted to do their best.

However, as hard of a shot they gave, to me, everything just fell apart from the very moment you start the game, and here is why:

The artwork is just sad. Egyptian hieroglyph looks better than what we see here.
UI is terrible, it feels very alpha. *cough* look at that type font *cough*
No economy, just a lifeless corpse of a castle that spits out little clones to either attack or defend it.
If you wanted a sim, like me, you wont see people chatting and going about their lives, there is no micro management. Nothing to see. Where are the citizens, the animations?
Take SH1, just awe at the amount of detail that it had, moss in the walls, cracks in the wood and stone. Even wind ffs.
Unfortunatly, you cannot stop and think: is this just a SH3 reskin with less bugs?

Is it a waste of time? God no. The gameplay is bland but at times, you may find some joy in it. Fans will do a fair bit of it out of pure nostalgia. Smashing walls can be fun.

In the end, the game just doesn’t do much for you to like it for very long.

Stronghold Crusader 2 offers very little change from the previous Crusader (2001). Hardcore fans and achievement hunters will be the only ones who will appreciate SC2. The "Campaign" trails are back from the original. They offer no more than a series of AI skirmish challenges that vary in difficulty. There's a dozen or so tutorial missions the have some kind of "Narrative" but I use that word loosely.

Melee Fighting: Winning consists of massing a blob of units into another player's castle to kill thier avatar "Lord." I say "blob" because the units clip into each other It's not pleasing on the eyes when a group of a hundred pikemen can't be distinguished between a single guy. To make matters worse, during a fight they all clip into smaller blob. To make matters EVEN worse, a well placed pitch pot can decimate a group of hundreds.

Castle Smashing: The castle walls are no more than ten feet high and seem as strong as paper mache't. A few catapults can blast through a wall very quickly. Probably why they removed ladder men and seige towers from the previous games. They added "ragdoll" physics, when a unit is arrowed they will tumble off the wall, if their foot doesn't get stuck and trap them hanging like maniquins for a few seconds before they disappear. When a tower falls with units on top the ragdoll levitates like Wil-e- Coyote holding up a sign before they fall to the ground.

Themes: The music is the only thing done right. Really great Crusade feeling soundtrack. As for the two religions, a lot of care was taken to avoid controversy. The Islamic Saracens dont eat the "pig" food ration (they grow sheep farms instead) and don't drink Ale, another handicap seeing as how they can't gain the happines benifits from Bars, and no other feature was put in place instead. Churches and Mosques are only distuinguishable from a little moon and star above the Mosque.

TL:DR= Only for fans of Stronghold. a lot of features done poorly, none really dont right. It's old Stronghold with new spit polish. Nab it on a sale and knock out the generous achievements.

5/10
I wont lie, I was a little dissapionted with this game when I first stared playing, I was a big fan of its predecessor 'Stonghold crusader', this was by far one of my favorite games when I was younger.
Pros and cons:

PROS- The graphics in-game have been updated, although not as much as you might hope for, especially for the fact that the old one came out 12 years ago.
- It is much harder to appease the peasants who flock to your castle, this does make the game a bit more challenging when it comes down to 'laying siege' to an enemies castle, at least in multiplayer. You can starve your enemy in a manner of speaking.
- There are new units, athough most of these are nearly identical to the predecessors, using some of the same quotes and one-liners.
- The walls fall down in 3D, instead of dissapearing,
- Destruction of castle walls and towers, looks better,
CONS- the Opening menu was a major dissapointment, i dont really know what i expected but the predecessors kicked ♥♥♥ compared to this new one.
- The new AI sucks, really sucks, (eg. the enemy computer always gets free siege equipment)
- The graphics aren't that imppressive for the amount of processing power it takes to run the game.
- The price tag for what you get is practically extortion.
- If you arent familiar with the game it is quite hard to understand the mechanics of the game, depsite the introduction campaign/scenario
- The new voice acting for the AI is just generally annoying, in my personal opinion they should have used the old voices from the last game.
- The mulitiplayer menu, is the same as the opening menu, a dissapointment
- There is a building and troop limit, whilst understandably for lower end computers is unchangeable, but there should be a way to adjust it.

All in all the game leaves you feeling a little underwhelmed, to be honest if your thinking of buying this game do yourself a favour and wait until a sale, save yourself the dissapointment of spending a lot of money on something that isn't quite up to standard.
I do know that Firefly are releasing updates and extensions so hopefully in the future they may be able to fix some of the problems, and annoyances.

Well this game was a bit of a let down for me. I enjoyed playing the first one and bought this game when it came out. It felt just like playing the orignal. All that has changed is the graphics and slight gameplay tweaks that were problematic in the original. Other then that its exactly the same game. Only their are more people playing this one in multiplayer but I am sure that will die out as their is little that is enticing to the repetative gameplay. Key bindings is a huge downfall I really would like to customize my key bindings to optimize my gameplay but I have not figured out how. Its not in the options page (first place you would think to look...) If you like the first one and own it dont bother paying for this because its exactly like the first one. I have not played any multiplayer matches to me a game should hold its own in singleplayer and branch from there. Game is unpolished and lacks replayability. Overall 3/10 in my opinion

True to its roots and resurrected in a 3D engine. This game adds more varied unit types over the first Crusader but it is unfortunate they couldn't do more with the new game engine.

This Stronghold surpasses Stronghold 2 when it comes to skirmishes - with a pretty good selection of maps, a slew of relatively interesting AI's, and a chain of increasingly difficult skirmish challenges. Unfortunately, a lot of the great castle sim features of Stronghold 2 are absent. In fact, even the castle management parts of SHC have been "dumbed down."

I thought that Stronghold Crusader 2 would have been a good game as the developers could have remedied the issues that came up in Stronghold 3 and applied it to this game. My hopes have been let down yet again. There is an insane amount of lag like Stronghold 3, when you click on the icons they do not always respond, when you mouse over the icon information like cost and materials does not always pop up, I have had buildings vanish as though I never built them even though the materials are gone, and too many other problems to count. I have wasted my money yet again on this game series. Never again. To hell with those that made this game and to hell with those that gave birth to them. I would recommend spending your hard earned money on something better.

My favorite part was when the AI rebuilt their entire fortress in under one second and the AI kept repeating the same thing over and over and over and over. Luckily the game crashed to my library where I realized I had far better games. Thanks Stronghold! Lots of potential but overall lack luster

Singly the largest disappointment in distant memory. I’m a longtime fan of the Stronghold franchise, boy is this game a letdown. It does have nice graphics, descent sound track and a somewhat intuitive interface, but the game SUCKS! I’ve played about halfway through the anemic single player campaign, to the point of forcing myself to continue; thinking it has got to get better, but it has not. There is not AI strategy to speak of and I guess the game developer thought it would be a good idea to slap a turn timer on just about every mission; so much for taking your time and enjoying the game. I wish I could get my money back, not only because the game play is terrible, but more so, that this team of developers don’t unleash another POS on the public. Tic-Tac-Toe is a better game.

Stronghold Crusader 2 is a worth sequel. It had some bugs and crashs at start which got fixed soon. The integration into steam and its workshop is a nice feature.
To the game: The "campagin" has sadly no real story and it is just skirmish maps. To be fair, crusader 1 was the same.
The unit balancing is well made and this game needs more strategy thinking because of the special of the units. It is not just possible to spam one or two unit types to win.
I played over 270h now and still like it and it makes fun to play it in multiplayer.

Should have done more research before buying this. The game is awful, combat is clunky and horrible to look at, I can't even build diagonal castle walls! Tooltips lack info and the game is overall not very intuitive.for being a castle sim, theres games that do it better and they're older. Pretty dissapointed by this.

I'm a diehard fan of the series, lets just get that out of the way. While I am loving Crusader 2, I feel it just hasn't brought all the features of it's predecessor to the table. It's missing the narritives of the original campaigns, and the awesomeness of the old UI. Great game, but I feel like it falls short in some areas. That shouldn't happen, the original came out twelve years ago.

I'm a fan of the series and I was hoping SC2 was really Stronghold Crusader II: Series Redemption.

I was wrong. My recommendation is to not buy this game. It's a game that was built better 8 years ago.

-Very buggy, will crash often for no apparent reason.
-AI sucks. Will do the same thing over and over and over. Online play is ok minus the above.
-Very shallow in terms of strategy, buildings and units.

Overall, I was very disappointed in this release and would not recommend a purchase until heavily discounted.

If you love strategy games as I do, you might get limited enjoyment out of it- just wait until the price drops below $20.

Before seeing the not recommended, please read as there is much to talk about. Being such a fan from the Orginal Stronghold Crusader I saw this and bought it thinking it would be new and just as fun as the orginal, sadly I was misguided. The game wasn't even close to my expectations however it does bring back some stuff Iw as thankful for, such as Ai opponents I loved, skirmish mode and crusader trails. However it was missing lots and lots of things (overtiem these could be added) many siege equitments are gone in the game to name jsut one. The graphics of the game (personally) don't fit the experience. The troop cap is to little and the maps offer to little rescources (one map does but only 1 map, for noobs like myselft at Crusader 2 more maps with more rescources would of been better), in game map builder is gone and instead it is with steam level editor which is much more complicated for the AVERAGE person to use. The variety of the game gets dull quick and it doesn't flow very good (in my opinion). All in all I was disapointed with it and I would get it when it is on sale definately not worth $50 U.S. I give it 6/10
