Stronghold Legends (2006)
Stronghold 2: Steam Edition (2017)
After the release of Legends next month the plan is to follow up with the release of a Steam edition for Stronghold 2 next year. Featuring all the same improvements and added multiplayer functionality of the Legends release, Stronghold 2: Steam Edition will update our first ever 3D Stronghold with achievements, Steam multiplayer, trading cards, all previously released DLC and new maps. As with Legends, this updated version of Stronghold 2 will be a free update for existing owners on Steam and automatically downloaded upon release.
Sequel to the award-winning Stronghold, Stronghold 2 brought the series to life in glorious 3D when it was first released in 2005. Offering players true ‘castle-life’ gameplay, enhanced multiplayer and an innovative new single player campaign, Stronghold 2 follows the exploits of Sir William and his page Sir Matthew Steele. When your defeated King appears to have fled England, Lord Barclay makes his move to take the crown for himself! After helping William escape from the clutches of Barclay, you must regroup and counterattack.
Entertain with jousts, lavish feasts and tournaments or rule with an iron fist and dispense medieval justice to overworked and malnourished peasants, become the Lord you were born to be! With powerful barons jostling for power over a disintegrating kingdom, it is up to you to stem the tides of ambition and unite the land under the one true King.
Stronghold 2 (2005)
Once work has concluded on Legends, Kingdoms (iOS/Android) and Stronghold 2 we will begin developing the next Stronghold game! A new standalone title for PC, more details will be revealed next year. All we can say for now is that the game will be released on Steam and it won’t be an expansion, nor will it be free-to-play. While the next Stronghold is not yet in active development, we do have a clear idea of the path we’re taking with the game and will reveal more as soon as these ideas solidify into the unique castle sim gameplay you know and love.
