The law of the Templar is coming to the desert! The Templar & The Duke DLC adds an extra Crusader Trail campaign and new AI characters, two Crusaders with contrasting origins, values and strengths. One is a brutal newcomer who embodies the Crusades’ nebulous motivations, while the other stands as successor to King Phillip from the original Stronghold Crusader (2002). Both men desire a glorious victory in the Holy Land, with The Templar seeking to cleanse the holy land of heretics and The Duke hoping to emerge from Phillip’s shadow and make his mark on the world, ideally without suffering too many casualties!

‘The Templar & The Duke’ includes seven unique story missions, new castle designs and more challenging AI adversaries shaped by player feedback.

In addition to the release of ‘The Templar & The Duke’ DLC we have also released a new update (v1.0.21623) for Stronghold Crusader 2. This update, which is now live on Steam and should download automatically, fixes numerous issues reported by players in the forums and via our support site. Click here to see the full change log.
