About This Content



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 missions, two AI opponents, 10 achievements and new castle designs unique to The Princess and The Pig.

New Missions



New contestants have entered the fray in the battle for Jerusalem! 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.

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.

Good DLC but 5€ is a little bit too much for 2 AIs. If they dropped the price to around 3€ or it's on a sale, I can say it's a must-have for people who enjoy playing against AIs.

For 2 AI lords and a few Skirmish trails.

I do not reccomend this. DLC that could of been in the game from the start. I know they will make more and charge us if they see it was successful. R.I.P Firefly Stronghold 3-Stronghold Crusader 2

Great DLC, new missions and new maps for skirmish mode / multiplayer.

the only flaw of the game is the lag when there are many troops on the map ... this problem MUST be fixed

Worth the fair asking price, gives a little extra punch to the game. it doesnt completely alter the game but it does add some play time and for those who like single player, although it isnt a large trail it's still something new. Enjoy guys

Stronghold going tha way of PayDay and Borderlands... Its start DLC machine.. Actualy i didnt want to buy this (becouse of lugs,bugs and e.t.c) but price wasnt so big and i tryed it.
Well... This DLC give to us new AI Lords The Princes and the Pig. Both of thame have pretty good castles and thay are good warriors.Also DLC include few achievments and maps. But this DLC have minuses... First, Animation. Princes has normal (not so good as i expect) animation but Pig have worse animation(but not as bad as wolf).
Second, Pig`s voise.. He was voised buy same actor as Rat. Its not a voice of 40 years old Fat basterd...
I am not strictly recommend you buy this. Ther is not something speshal... but princes is cute and Pig strong.
