    "We are thrilled to release this imaginative successor to the award-winning Stronghold," said Kelly Sumner, Chief Executive Officer of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc.

As European nobles or Arabian warriors, players must conquer the harsh terrain during the legendary Crusades of the 11th and 12th centuries.

    Der Nachfolger des vielfach preisgekrönten Bestsellers Stronghold entführt Strategen in die arabische Welt zur Zeit der legendären Kreuzzüge von Richard Löwenherz.

    Hinter wehrhaften Burgmauern lebt eine stetig wachsende Gemeinschaft aus Waffenschmieden, Brauern und Pfeilmachern, während sich vor den Toren gegnerische Meuchelmörder herumtreiben und mächtige Kriegsmaschinen in Stellung gehen. In Stronghold Crusader reisen Sie in arabische Ländereien und erleben dort die heroischen Kämpfe der historischen Kreuzzüge.

    Ihre Aufgabe ist es, mittelalterliche Wüstenfestungen zu errichten und zu verteidigen und furchtlose Gegner zu belagern. In der Rolle von Richard Löwenherz führen Sie schwer gepanzerte europäische Ritter an oder Sie kommandieren als Saladin, Sultan von Syrien, riesige arabische Armeen im rauen Gelände der legendären Kreuzzüge des 11. und 12. Jahrhunderts.

    Stronghold Crusader kombiniert dabei die interessantesten Aspekte von Aufbau- und Echtzeit-Strategie.
