Invasions Now Live

Sandbox Sieges, Easy AI Mode, New Maps and More!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cDAPCEkYNWg
Our new ‘Invasions’ update is now available on Steam, free for all owners of Stronghold Crusader 2. Launch siege invasions against your castle in Sandbox mode, turn on easy AI or choose your faction in single player Skirmish Trail missions and build across a selection of new maps in custom skirmish, sandbox or online multiplayer.

Siege Invasions
Siege invasions allow you to launch AI sieges against experimental castle designs in Crusader 2's free build Sandbox mode. Refine best practices for castle construction and create the ultimate stronghold, testing your most robust castles against powerful AI invasions. Launch siege armies of varying sizes, add random events and more!

Easy AI Mode
Having trouble completing each Skirmish Trail? Is the AI taunting you in your dreams? A new easy mode can now be turned on, toning down the notorious difficulty of Skirmish Trail missions and providing players with some breathing room. Reducing the frequency and aggressiveness of enemy attacks, this feature is designed to ease up on the challenge for players struggling against Stronghold's famously challenging antagonists. The Trails will nevertheless remain a challenge, so don't dare let your guard down!

Faction Selection
For the first time in Stronghold history you can now choose which of the two factions you wish to represent in Skirmish Trail missions. Having developed an Arabic faction story campaign to tell the tale of Saladin's forces, we have now further blurred the lines between good and evil by giving you the choice of which faction you wish to represent on the battlefield. Gain access to the advantages and disadvantages of their unique castle architecture by playing as either invading Crusaders or Arabic freedom fighters.

New Maps
From the no man’s land of ‘Interlocked’ to the steep slopes of ‘Volcano’ and the woodlands of ‘The Forest’, this new map pack adds both Skirmish and Sandbox maps to the game. With unique landscapes featuring beaches, lakes and even the odd volcano, you can now do battle across a variety of different scenery while drenching the desert sands with the blood of your enemies.

In addition we have also fixed various bugs - Full Update Notes

Please Note: This feature update should download automatically when you launch the Steam client. To confirm whether or not the download was successful, check the version number displayed in the bottom left corner of the main menu screen when launching Crusader 2. If the number displayed is not v1.0.21103 please restart Steam until the update downloads.

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!

Про цю гру

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.
