announced today that Stronghold 3: Gold Edition
, will be available on 25 May 2012 for PC and Mac. The new Gold Edition features all the extra content and tweaks added to Stronghold 3 since release. This includes 3 core campaigns (including the new Blackstaff Campaign), 4 multiplayer modes (including the new Coronation mode), a free build sandbox mode and 12 historical sieges.
Set during the events of Stronghold 3's military campaign, Blackstaff is an all-new single player campaign, following Thomas Blackstaff as he hunts down the three escaped sons of The Rat. Your journey will take you across the sea to your former home on Greyshore Island and pit you against the evil Brotherhood, who in your youth forced you into exile.
Anyone that purchased Stronghold 3 before the launch of the Gold Edition on 25 May will have their copy of the game automatically upgraded to Stronghold 3: Gold Edition through Steam. Those who purchase the standard edition of Stronghold 3 after this date will have the option to purchase the Blackstaff Campaign (including access to all 12 historical sieges) as downloadable content.
