The Guild 2 - Renaissance is a stand-alone add-on, so players do not need to own a previous version to play it
JoWooD has issued a new patch for Renaissance, updating to v4.1 this new add-on for The Guild 2. This add-on includes nine completely new careers (character classes), as well as a wholly re-worked Title system offering a brand-new gameplay element to the player - e.g. in order to reach the next title, you will need to either supply your King with lansquenet mercenaries - or serve as an officer in a war yourself. In addition, the maps are up to four times the size of those in the original The Guild 2.
