April Update

Size - 3.4 MB
Version - 1.0.22670

We have released a small update to address a couple of issues.

Change Log
  • Fixed the "Fetchez La Vache" achievement.
  • Added an options_override file for players experiencing issues when saving game options. (See below for full details)

Some players have reported that the game does not allow them to load and save games properly. This appears to be because the game cannot access their Documents\Stronghold Crusader 2 folder for an unknown reason. To remedy this we have released an update allowing players to change the directory in which Stronghold Crusader 2 stores all options, saved games, maps etc.

In order to use this players can edit the file in \bin\win32_release\options_override.xml, located in their installed directory. Please read the instructions within the file before editing it.

We strongly suggest only using this override if absolutely necessary, in cases where the default directory cannot be used. Do NOT use this override option if you experience no issues when saving options, progress or saved games within Stronghold Crusader 2.

Please Note: Steam Cloud will not work if you use an override path. Steam Cloud only works with the Documents\Stronghold Crusader 2 folder.

This 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 1.0.22670 please restart Steam until the update downloads.

About This Game



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!



  • 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.

This game is dedicated to 1 of my friend. As I enjoyed playing this game, I really wish that firefly could fix the bugs and some errors.

To buy, or not to buy. If it is the craving for the style of the old stronghold games that you are looking for, you will be massively disapointed. If it was a fun and involving strategy game that you are looking for, again, you are to be disapointed. If you are looking for an in depth city/castle builder, unless you've played all the Anno, Age Of Empires, and earlier stronghold games until you simply cannot stand to play them any longer, then this MIGHT be worth the buy if it is on sale.

I bought this game whilst it was on sale, undetered by the overwhelmingly negative reviews i had read earlier, I foolishly bought the game with the low expectation that it would be at most a poorly re-done stronghold 3. Even with those low expectations I was still let down. The campaign takes well over an hour of unskippable grinding gamplay that inst even remotely interesting before you even get to do anything remotely interesting. To make matters worse, there was no mention or easily recognisable option that would speed up the game speed, and so it was almost when i was at the end of my patience when i discovered that the only way to change game speed is with the hotkeys "+ or -", making this game a hell of a drag for the beginning of any single player match

The multiplayer is barely any better, it shows none of the fast paced action of stronghold 2 or its predecessors, and the matchmaking was very poor and scarce.

In summary, unless you have played every other strategy game you own until you cannont bear to play them for one moment longer, do not buy this game. I would instead recommend watching the opening cinematics for AOE1 in 240x 180p than recommend somebody actually buy this game and play it

By the sounds of it you're unable to play with your friends if they bought the game from another platform (GOG)
Also the game has weird disconnect issues after like 30-60 minutes of play.

That's not even mentioning the mediocre bland remake and DLC hogging which adds practically no content.

If you are a true RTS fan, this game is for you. Great economy system too. Its a little bit tougher than some rts's but thats what makes it fun. If you like any of the age of empires game or the anno series, its like a combination of the 2. Greatest Medieval Rts there is so far.

This game is beautiful. Not the best Stronghold Games so far, but still, its beautiful. Endless possibility with map editor, community map is better and absolute bigger map than the previous titles, Castle sim mode is the best, unlimited building, YES UNLIMITED BUILDING, i've gotten to 700 population in castle sim mode and let my peons pay super high tax XD.

ignore the bad reviews, if you are truly follows stronghold, you shoul try this one, BE AWARE though if you have slow pc, I do not recommend it. It's going to be a laggy adventure for you.

Don't listen to the reviews saying even die-hard fans should stay away, it's one of the best 3D Stronghold games in the series. A mostly decent castle rts with a few holes, some losses, but many new features (including achievements). I don't understand why some reviewers tore it to shreds, have they really played all of the Stronghold games? It's definitely not complete trash and better than most of the lesser "3D" Strongholds for sure.

Gameplay: Overall, the game objective remains the same - build your castle and economy, make troops, conquer the enemy through a series of skermish trails. Like Crusader I, the sequel also focuses more on wartime than peace-time - so you will find more war and defense buildings and less economy peacetime buildings. Too much disappointment, the Fear Factor system has been removed...seriously, what the hell? Production is stuck at slow as hell now. Economic management has been improved with the lovely "automatic trades" at the market and finer tuned popularity management with supply adjustments all made in a single window. You can also see your daily production & consumption levels of popularity supporting goods to be sure the production meets the need. Troops vary from many familiar to several new troops as well. New troops include some most-powerful "leader" troops that will boost the defense and attack for certain troops around them - Sergent for Knights, Slave Master for Slaves. A few favorites from Crusader I were unfortunately replaced with new troops too . Keeping them all and adding on would have been better...I miss the underrated rock throwers.

Difficulty: Difficultly has been taken up a notch as Enemy AI loves to rush your castle early. Even the weaker known AI such as The Rat will provide a greater challenge. Some players say the enemy AI cheats more too and spawns many troops regardless of how bad their popularity and economy are doing. Mastering stategic defense early is utmost importance, troops (towers & crossbowmen) must be made before much of the economy. Popularity responds significantly faster to your economy now with negative and positive ratings immediately affecting your peasants - i.e. the moment your popularity drops, workers start leaving in seconds!! Also castles are more expensive to build with stone walls costing 7 stone each and stone curtains being 3 stone...stone stocks too low sir!!

Performance: The game runs fine until your castle starts filling up with tons of buildings (Bakers, Brewers, Hovels), peasants, and troops. Then even systems with a Radeon R9 3GB+ will have frame rates of around 25ish. This isn't a bad console port and they really should optimize the code further. It's not horrible and I still enjoy the game plenty regardless, but it is funny that my system also runs Fallout 4 around 45-60fps on max graphics... Many of the major glitches and flaws noted by early reviewers are now patched up and gone, however I do still rarely see the "crusified troops" glitch where they walk in a frozen T position for a bit or also troops getting stuck on the stairs. Also the audio for catapult rocks hitting stone structures and walls is overloaded and WAY TOO LOUD.

Visual: The graphics are similar to Stronghold 3 and perhaps even better. The animations are about the same too. The enemy AI FMVs have been completely redone with entirely new and goofier looking characters for classic familiar foes and many new adversaries. The interface really varies from a crappy low res title screen of an assassin (come on, looks like crap) to a nicely done very zen feeling skirmish trail amongst the stars. Some recycled troop graphics from Stronghold 3 for sure.

Audio: A mix of half recycled, half new when it comes to effects and music - perhaps more new. This is typical for Stronghold games. Music really varies, but I feel it is not randomized enough and many tracks are rarely heard while a few are played too often. Classic familiar AI features new voice acting that is a complete joke compared to the much more intimidating classic voice acting. The Pig now says things like, "No No No, that's ma land!" compared to "I WILL CRUSH YOU!!! I WILL KIWWLLL YOU!!!." The Rat is also more dull and bore with phrases like, "My father didn't like ya, I don't like ya either." Blah. The newer non-familiar enemy voiceacting (mostly arabic tyrants) does seem to be higher quality and more charismatic charm though. Lionheart seems decent enough too actually.

Conclusion: A worthy castle sim gameplay for many new and veteran fans alike but nothing perfect or AAA. Die-hard fans shall enjoy the new features plenty to make up for the loss of some favored features. It's not the best RTS and there are flaws, but it's still pretty fun and easily to get lost in for hours. Firefly always releases these too early in development, but I luckily began to play after much of the final development. I'd say grab it on sale, and definitely wait for the DLC to go on sale. The main game is tough and should offer plenty while waiting on the DLC.

Honestly.. i dont know why people write so many bad reviews on the game. Its called making the game a bit more difficult.
just because you cant make walls or buildings as cheap as you were once able to. This game is not no where near as bad as peopl make it out to be. Someone posted that you could only place one stone wall at a time? that is a lie. i have played the older strongholds sense i was a child. i do not think the games is worth 40 dollars U.S, but sense its on sale 9.99 its worth every penny on sale!.

Most certainly not as nice as AOE2.. but still worth trying out for crusade era lovers.

The Firefly team has been slowly going downhill, backwards. Even if I had not started with Stronghold 1, I would not
reccomend this game.

- Difficulty. The programmers confused cheating with difficulty. What this essentially means is the moment you have finally breached the castle walls, the AI will instantly spawn a very large amount of troops to flood you, then instantly repair the breach.
- Economy. While you certainly have to tend to yours, the AI does not. Destroying farms, mines, quarries, food, does nothing to slow down or stop the AI. While it appears they are spending money, they are not and can always afford anything.
- Rushes. The campaign is an exercise in defending against rushes. Remember the cheating thing? Combine that with a rush. Takes 30 seconds for a fully grown AI to be outside your castle with catapults, torches, and enough to kill your Lord, meanwhile your fletcher has not even gotten to his workshop yet.
- Defensive ability. All you have to defend yourself are walls. That is it. No moats. Hoarding is killed by a couple arrows, and arrows tend to simply pass right through it. No real way to create a defence besides building more walls. Walls that have to constantly be tended to due the the sheer catapult rush the AI throws at you. No engineers to help either. And Walls are super expensive to build, which wouldnt be an issue if I did not require so much time to tend to them.

It wants to be good, but falls flat. Play Stronghold 1, 2, and Crusader 1.

I returned this game and here's why.

It was honestly one of the worst things I have ever played. The user interface looks ugly and so are the graphics, the voice acting is terrible and villagers no longer speak when you click on them which was one of the best small details of other games. The economy, happiness and resource sides of the game are very simplistic and add nothing to the game. I only played it for a short time and knew that it was no good.

Ignore the screenshots and videos, they are fake as hell. If you want a good Stronghold experience go buy Stronghold 2 for €4. This game isn't even half as good as that is.

To be clear, I had this game as soon as it came out. I was quite reluctant to give so much money for a blind leap, so I won't comment where or how I got it. I bought it as soon as it came to Steam and I had money at hand, hoping that the reviews and negativism were rather exaggerated. Sadly, my hopes were in vain.

It is sad to see that this "new" take on our beloved series fail our expectations so hard. That which could have been a new breath of life for the classic series, with all technologies and possibilities at hand somehow managed to fail miserably.

The content does hardly bring anything new. Many things seem clumsy and broken. "Fortifications" feel like paper, unless you set walls to 2x health (Which does not affect hoardings and such, still being pulled down by about 10 arrows). We may have 3d graphics and quite smoothly running engine, but the mechanical and gameplay details which were taken out are not even worth it. Take the worst aspects of SH2 (which even flawed I somehow managed to enjoy) and the theme of SHC. Ta-da!

Where are the iconic monks? Mill boy can't keep up with wheat production of the mill itself, his wheat piles up on the elevator... and why is he sole? Slaves able to survive several arrows with slave drivers at hand, bruning all to cinder faster than you'd get cavalry out? Hoardings on walls not deflecting arrows, and the additional ones you purchace fall apart -to actual arrows-? Moats, please? Siege towers? Ladders? Useful horse archers? Entertainment or torture? Amusing citizen responses? No? Very well... a castle builder where castle is absolutely redundant.

Oh, where are the times that towers actually did protect your units... or when siege actually could fail if you brainlessly bashed against enemy's walls. If templar knight is sturdier than walls of a castle, I think something is a bit off. Since walls have proven worthless waste of time, we simply turned to units. Did it work? Yes. Not a single tower, not a single wall. At some point, we did not even have to try since enemy kept charging lion dens and dying out, completely ignoring us.
Alas, I could go on for countless lines...

Considering that the devs in interview said that they wished to make this game on their own terms, unlike SH3, not being pressed to deadline so that the game itself could provide quality entertainment. Shame, if this is the quality you sought.
Surely we have interesting variety of troops, mayhap not quite balanced... oh wait... no, it is roughly the same amount only with ridiculously overpowered choices... but variety nevertheless (With knights who can stand in fire for minutes and take countless arrows and bolts while tearing down the walls brick by brick). We also have quite poorly animated lord responses and *cough* 'beautiful' artwork... oh, lords. Of course, we have those, even though half of them is in DLCs 5 bucks each, thank you very much.

I can't tell how much laughter and venomous jokes stirred by disappointment and irony dripped from our mouths as we played this with friend. After the painful chore of fighting the not-so-smart-♥♥♥♥ AI, we absconded this game for it's predcessor.

Want to buy this? You'd be better off with Crusader HD.
Or maybe you would like to laugh your lungs out. That works too.
My subjective opinion, your choice of purchase.

At least Robert Euvino did his job as well as would be expected of him.

Actually a really enjoyable game, the Stronghold Crusader's series hasn't let me down yet.
I was suprised to find a good new Stronghold game, after the other dissapointments that claimed to be Stronghold eg Stronghold 3 was awful, but this really has bought the franchise back to it's former glory, the good Stronghold's like Stronghold 1, and Stronghold Crusader 1 are dear favourites of mine and most people's Stronghold games, this certainly can now be among those great Stronghold games.

Granted, some of the new voice actors for this game are quite, well, awful, but it's nice to see that most of the crusaders still have the voices they had back in England, let alone how good those guys are at voice acting.

Overrall, all I have to say, you've really outdone yourselves, Stronghold. I see this game was rushed but it's still amazing, buy this game!
