Over dit spel

Journey to distant Arabian lands renowned for brave warriors and fearsome weaponry in Stronghold Crusader HD. The highly anticipated sequel to the best-selling Stronghold, Crusader throws you into historic battles from the Crusades with fiendish AI opponents, new units, 4 historical campaigns and over 100 unique skirmish missions.


Relive the historic Crusades as Richard the Lionheart and the Saladin, Sultan of Syria. Lead a determined group of Crusaders, forged by centuries of barbaric warfare, amidst the haze of the desert heat then fight for your freedom as the mighty Saladin.

Stronghold Crusader HD features several campaigns documenting the First, Second and Third Crusades, as well as conflicts within the individual Crusader states. Battles such as Nicea, Heraclea, siege of Antioch, Krak des Chevaliers and the Siege of Jerusalem all feature, as do the Crusader Trails from the Stronghold Warchest and Stronghold Crusader Extreme.

HD Edition

With new high resolution graphics you have more control over your soldiers than ever before. The new HD battlefield view allows you to zoom out and play in real-time, with the whole map on one screen. Advance on the castle gates while flanking the enemy from behind, feign retreat and lead your foe into a deadly trap or just sit back and watch the destruction unfold.

Both Stronghold Crusader and Stronghold Crusader Extreme are included in Stronghold Crusader HD. Extreme plays exactly like the original Stronghold Crusader, only with a few additions. The unit cap has been increased from 1000 to a staggering 10,000 troops, special Tactical Powers such as the Arrow Volley can be used and new buildings make their appearance alongside the Crusader Extreme skirmish trail.

  • Join the Crusaders or the Saladin’s forces in 4 historical campaigns.
  • Fight through 100 unique skirmish missions, each one more challenging than the last.
  • Design and build your desert fortress, with a working economy and brutal killing zones.
  • Command new units with unique abilities, such as the stealthy Assassin and nimble Horse Archer.
  • High resolution graphics allow you to view the entire map on a single screen.
  • Steam Cloud support for saved games.
  • Updated for Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8 compatibility.

An old masterpiece came to Steam - in High Definition (or atleast high resolution...)

I remember, when I was a little boy about 9 years old, I saw this game in a market and I begged my dad to buy me this RTS-game. I played everyday and it was never boring - not even a little bit! And now it is here - on Steam! Feeling the satisfaction of building your own castle while at the same time demolishing someone else's. Just. Great.

to the m'lord-cave!
++ best "Stronghold"
++ it's a classic
+ one of the best RTS (in my opinion!)
+ 16 different enemies with special tactics!
+ many maps (whether balanced or not)
+ historical missions
+ 2 campaigns (2nd campaign is much harder!)
+ skirmish mode! (80 missions)
+ different modes: the peaceful and war path
+ loads of playable options
+ create your own maps!
+ easy gameplay and easy to learn the mechanics
+ no food? no fear! - beer is here!
+ and it won't get boring - only harder :)
+ you don't need a high-end gamer ultra 4k PC

"buildings are in flames m'lord!"
- HD? Just the resolution changed
- ma' crusade ended 1781 AC (depends on how long you play)
- AI won't build armies over 400 soldiers
- The Kalif is an as*hole
- what year is it?
- campaign is less "personal"
- got killed by 100 slaves
- often you can easily rush the enemy in the first minutes
- double rations
- some people can't run the game! (you are warned)

A little extra information: in "Stronghold Crusader Extreme" you are able to build armies up to 10000 soldiers... and the enemy too ;-)
just an information if you would complain about the limited army size, like I mentioned before :-)

Those negative aspects are just poop, so don't mention them.
I can tell that you WILL have lot of fun. I'm through the first 50 missions and already at 35 hours! You don't need a sale to buy this, just 8€ and you recieve hours of fun. Don't mind the graphics, it's from 2002!
But remember - This is a recommendation for Stronghold Crusader and not for the whole series (sadly the game became more and more worse).

"Do you recommend this game?"

- "Of course, m'lord!" 9/10

little update: I am through the 100 missions of the crusade and have about ~60 hours playtime (because of connection problems, my counted hours are false)... and I didn't even started the real campaign :-D
I think if you play every mission, campaign and possible option you can reach 100 hours!

Some people have the problem that the game doesn't start at all - maybe this thread can help you:
