Stronghold Crusader 2 at gamescom 2013

Back to the ancient deserts of the Middle East for more real-time mayhem between brutal knights and fiery Caliphs
Firefly Studios today announced that Stronghold Crusader 2, the next entry in the legendary Stronghold series, will be presented 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.
Stronghold Crusader 2 is scheduled for release in early 2014.
