Stronghold 2 Deluxe Edition is a version of the original Stronghold 2 featuring new campaigns, opponents, maps and updated content. Stronghold 2 was the first of the Stronghold franchise to be in full 3D. Players will be able to build and develop numerous types of castles and defenses while watching their peasants go about their every day lives. Players will see medieval life in all its forms from festivals and jousts to drunken wenches serving their lord dinner. Players will also be given more control over the strategic aspect of the game.
Stronghold 2 Deluxe Edition will add more exciting gameplay elements to what is already the most accurate depiction of siege-warfare and castle-life ever portrayed in a computer game.
Become a sovereign ruler over the lands as you build and fortify your citadel. Appease the peasantry by hosting festivals and letting the ale flow or rule with an iron fist and strike fear into the hearts of your subjects.
- A whole new game mode to play! The player takes part in a crusade across Europe, attacking or defending historical castles. Each castle presents a greater challenge than the last, how far down the trail can you get?
