A new Community Q&A video has been released for Stronghold Crusader 2, the long awaited ‘castle sim’ sequel from Firefly Studios. Marketing Manager Nick Tannahill answers questions from players on everything from playable factions and in-game diplomacy to Firefly’s choice of office equipment and the game’s revolutionary lack of an always-online requirement:
Updates on development will now shift to dev diaries and previews of the game at beta stage. Testing has begun and the Crusader 2 team is now entering the final stretch, leaving ample time for play testing and balancing of individual units before the title appears in digital and physical store shelves later this year.
Stronghold Crusader 2 is the long-awaited sequel to Stronghold Crusader, a game many consider to be the definitive castle sim. After 12 years Firefly are returning to the desert to make the game they have always wanted to make, recapturing the original Crusader’s addictive, fast-paced gameplay in a new 3D engine. “Ready when it’s ready”, Crusader 2 will define old-school real-time strategy with fiendish AI characters, fast-paced skirmish gameplay and new troops, traps and castles.
