Released by Firefly Studios in 2008
Stronghold Crusader Extreme takes the addictive Crusader gameplay to a new level. Featuring massive battles, new outposts and tactical powers to master, Extreme carries on from where Crusader left off. The all new Extreme trail will provide a stiff challenge to any hardened Crusader player. For those new to Crusader, the original game has been provided too, in an updated form and with all the previously released limited edition content, such as the second crusader trail and all new AI opponents.
The first Stronghold game was developed in 2001 by Firefly Games, and after its initial success, several sequels and expansion packs have been released. The basic objective of all games is to manage your medieval territory, starting with a simple area and building up your power as you go along, either by warfare or through developing the economy and farming of your lands.
Some of the highlights of this new game, which is available for the PC, include the ability to play over 20 new missions, and when in battle, you can control over 10 000 units on the battlefield.
