GOG Tournament


As unpredictable as battles during the actual Crusades, last month the DRM-free release of Stronghold Crusader 2 on GOG experienced a slight delay. The good news is that we now have a fixed date for the release and tournament! Stronghold Crusader 2 will release via GOG (formerly Good Old Games) on Thursday November 19th.


With a final release date in sight, the previously announced Crusader 2 GOG tournament will soon be ready to begin. Scheduled to start on Friday November 20th this ‘Player vs Developer’ tournament invites contestants to claim exclusive spoils of war ranging from GOG vouchers and Firefly games on Steam to signed physical prizes and Stronghold merchandise.

There are a few spots left to be filled by brave players, so if you want to play (and win!) simply fill out the application form!

Pitting the most ruthless, skilled and savage players against each other, players and Firefly staff will compete in separate brackets before facing off against each other in the grand final on Sunday December 6th!
