About This Game
Stronghold Crusader is the successor to the Firefly Studios game Stronghold (2001). Crusader has a lot in common with the original Stronghold, but differs from its predecessor in that the game is no longer set in a pseudo-Europe, but instead is set in the Middle East, during the Crusades.
Stronghold Crusader’s combat system focuses on fights between lords, on more or less large maps, with capacity for up to eight players. The tower locations are already predetermined. Contrary to the first Stronghold game, the player develops at the same time as the enemy.
