Take back the Holy Lands, or denounce Christianity, infuriating an entire religion in the process. I'd be prepared for that if I were you.

About Stronghold Crusader HD

About this game

War awaits to the east

Build an army of brave warriors and journey to distant Arabian lands to do battle in real-time strategy combat, with your Stronghold Crusader HD Steam key. The highly-anticipated sequel to the best-selling Stronghold, Crusader throws you into historic battles from the Crusades with brutal AI opponents, new units, four historical campaigns and over 100 unique skirmish missions!

BATTLE TACTICS
Advance on the castle gates while flanking the enemy from behind, feign retreat and lead your foe into a deadly trap – or just sit back and watch the destruction unfold.

HISTORIC CRUSADES
Playing as either Richard the Lionheart or the Saladin, Sultan of Syria, players will lead their determined group of Crusaders, forged by centuries of barbaric warfare, into large-scale battles. Stronghold Crusader HD features several campaigns documenting the First, Second and Third Crusades, as well as conflicts within the individual Crusader states. Experience battles such as Nicea, Heraclea, siege of Antioch, Krak des Chevaliers and the Siege of Jerusalem, as well as the Crusader Trails from the Stronghold Warchest and Stronghold Crusader Extreme.

HD UPGRADE
Thanks to new high-res graphics, gamers will not only see the game from a whole new perspective, but the way that you control your soldiers changes too. The new HD battlefield view allows players to zoom out and play in real-time, with the entire map available to view on one screen.

DOUBLE THE FUN
In Stronghold Crusader HD, you’ll have access to both Stronghold Crusader and Stronghold Crusader Extreme. Extreme has all of the excitement that the original Stronghold Crusader includes, but with a few extra perks.
The unit cap has been increased from 1,000 to an astounding 10,000 troops, as well as special Tactical Powers, such as the Arrow Volley, and new buildings make their appearance alongside the Crusader Extreme skirmish trail.

YOUR OFFICIAL STRONGHOLD CRUSADER HD STEAM KEY GIVES YOU:

  • The choice of joining the Crusaders or the Saladin’s forces in four historical campaigns.
  • 100 unique skirmish missions to fight through, each one more challenging than the last.
  • Desert fortresses to design and build, with a working economy and brutal killing zones.
  • New units to command with unique abilities, such as the stealthy Assassin and nimble Horse Archer.
  • High resolution graphics that allow you to view the entire map on a single screen.
  • Steam Cloud support for saved games.
  • Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8 compatibility.

Honestly a classic and the same as it has always been. While I would love co op in campaign and maybe a few modernizations at its core? It is a amazing game for you to try! Not to mention cheap on sale.

Stronghold Crusader HD Review

Sam Jones
Staff Review
A simulation strategy that takes you back to 1095, Stronghold Crusader HD allows players to play through four different historical campaigns. With mechanics that redefined strategy games upon original release, Stronghold Crusader HD is back with a bang.
