"We are thrilled to release this imaginative successor to the award-winning Stronghold," said Kelly Sumner, Chief Executive Officer of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. "While the original Stronghold continues to captivate fans worldwide, Stronghold Crusader is packed with intense skirmish play and unparalleled siege weaponry. Players will relive the heroic battles of the historic Crusades in a challenging new desert setting."
Stronghold Crusader is a dynamic "castle sim" set in a distant Arabian land that combines the finest aspects from the city builder and real-time strategy genres. In Stronghold Crusader, players journey to lands renowned for brave warriors and fearsome weaponry. The player's challenge is to build and defend medieval desert fortresses and lay siege to fearless enemies. As European nobles or Arabian warriors, players must conquer the harsh terrain during the legendary Crusades of the 11th and 12th centuries.
The original Stronghold won critical acclaim from both consumer and trade media, including the "Editors Choice" award from Computer Gaming World and IGN.
