The next expansion for Stronghold Crusader 2, ‘The Emperor & The Hermit’ adds two extra AI opponents, an all-new Crusader Trail campaign, 10 achievements, five player shields and new castle designs. As an added bonus, everyone who owns the base game can now access nine additional maps for free. Players with and without the DLC can play together online on a map of their choosing, regardless of whether they own the DLC or not.
Spiritual successors to The Emperor and The Abbot from the original Stronghold Crusader (2002), The Emperor and The Hermit are driven by religious fervour. Backed by zealots who follow their cause without question, be it just or corrupt, both leaders represent a dangerous new threat to all sides in the Crusader conflict. Cunning tactics and battle hardened wits will be needed to fight through the seven skirmishes and three maps found in ‘The Emperor & The Hermit’ skirmish trail, with the difficulty curve ramped up even higher than before!
The new DLC is now available on Steam for the promotional price of £2.67/$4.01/€3.34.
