Taking as its basis the gameplay of the original Stronghold Crusader, Crusader 2 will take the world of fast paced skirmish play to new heights, with new troops, new traps, new castle buildings and a host of fiendish new AI opponents.
Featuring stunning new visuals, a tightly reworked interface for better battle control, environmental effects and threats, real-time physics and a range of gameplay enhancements, Crusader 2 promises to offer the same addictive, intense gameplay that has made the original a classic.
Nick Tannahill, Marketing Manager at Firefly Studios had the following to say, ‘We're proud to finally show our new Stronghold to the press and the Stronghold community during E3 2013. Crusader 2 is a collective effort with the entire team pitching in to help realise our dream of self-publishing. It is allowing us to really listen to the player community and react to their input, which we value hugely. To take our time and do things the right way without having to rush. It feels like a real reward to be here at E3 on our own terms with everyone’s hard work paying off in our demo of the game. Until you hear more from us or the press please enjoy the new trailer, which is now online’.
Later this year Firefly Studios plans to seek additional funds through game-focused crowd sourcing service Gambitious, with funding going towards polish, a closed backer-only beta and additional game content.
