We are proud to announce that the first gameplay footage for Stronghold Crusader 2 will be revealed at Gamescom 2013 in Colonge, Germany. An updated build of the game will be shown to press and its first gameplay trailer will be revealed in full, featuring multiplayer footage and a first look at the game’s fiendish AI characters.

The team will be demonstrating various improvements made to the game since its E3 debut in June. This includes command powers, new unit abilities and dynamic events such as the Tornado, which tears away at castle walls stone by stone in real time, sucking in any archers unlucky enough to be stationed on top! Also on show will be the game’s Co-op mode and an assortment of units completely new to the Stronghold series.

In addition to the game’s first trailer being revealed during the show, a batch of new screenshots will also be released, allowing players and press their first look at the Locust Swarm, siege equipment such as the Trebuchet and skirmish gameplay between human players and their crafty AI opponents.
