Firefly Studios welcomes you to this brand new Stronghold video series, Inspirations Behind Crusader! So saddle up your camel with grappling hooks and slingshots as we travel back to 1095 in search of the dawn of the Crusades.

Learn about the inciting incidents which led to this two decade long conflict, who the big players were and how the Arabian economy would translate into the Stronghold formula in Firefly’s attempt to make a more fast paced, multiplayer focused counterpart to it’s atmospheric, story-rich beginnings of Stronghold.
