The Arabic Campaign will be a fully featured single player
campaign focusing on the exploits of the Arabic forces during
Firefly’s tongue-in-cheek rendition of the Crusades. A first
for the Stronghold series, this new campaign will be comparable in
length to the game’s Crusader campaign with around the same
number of missions.
Players will assume the role of the mighty Saladin, rather than
Richard the Lionheart. Commanding his troop of Arabic freedom
fighters, after the invasion of their lands at the hands of the
brutal Crusaders, the Saladin must rebuild his army, seek vengeance
on those that betrayed him and take back what was lost to Richard
and his armies.
We hope fans enjoy this twist on the standard Stronghold
formula, which gives the game a sense of balance and equal
attention to the Arabic side of this historic conflict”,
said Marketing Manager Nick Tannahill. “
It’s almost a shame we had to reveal this early as it
would have made a nice surprise for players, but hopefully they
will still enjoy commanding the Saladin and the game’s new
Arabic faction units”.
Scheduled for release in early 2014, Stronghold Crusader 2 will
be digitally self-published by Firefly Studios. Additional funding
is currently being sought through a new games-centric crowd funding
platform Gambitious. Funds raised will be put toward an extended
development cycle, a closed beta and additional game content.
