Stronghold 2 is the third installment of the Stronghold franchise. The original Stronghold was the first and only game to combine a castle SIM with siege-warfare RTS. Stronghold 2 will be the first to bring the franchise to 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 is the only game of its kind to offer both sim and combat strategy gameplay. Building upon the legacy of its predecessors, Stronghold 2 offers a full story-driven single player campaign, innovative features like the all-new Kingmaker and enhanced multiplayer modes and additional gameplay options for more casual players.

“Stronghold 2 combines a stunning 3D engine with deep, intuitive gameplay to create an unparalleled strategic experience for all types of gamers,” said Christoph Hartmann, Senior Vice President of Publishing for 2K Games. “This isn’t just a sequel, it’s a major step forward for the genre.”

“The Stronghold series showcases our love of castles and medieval life,” said Simon Bradbury, Director at Firefly Studios, and lead designer on Stronghold 2. “With Stronghold 2, we’ve added more depth to both the castle life and siege gameplay and produced what we think is the definitive medieval strategy game.”

Stronghold 2 for PC is rated T for teen and is available now at a suggested retail price of $39.99. For more information please visit
