2K Games Launches The Stronghold™ Collection for Windows PC
2K Games today announced that The Stronghold™ Collection is now available for Windows PC in North America. The Stronghold Collection brings together five games from the critically acclaimed real-time strategy (RTS) series that allows players to conquer the Middle Ages.
The Stronghold series has become one of the most popular dynamic castle building sim games in the world, combining the finest aspects from the city builder and RTS genres. The Stronghold Collection includes the deep strategic gameplay of Stronghold, Stronghold 2, Stronghold Crusader, Stronghold Crusader Extreme and Stronghold Legends in a $29.99 value-priced package that is entirely DRM-free.
“The Stronghold series has seen worldwide success, and we are excited to now offer The Stronghold Collection in one epic bundle,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “Now fans and newcomers alike can experience the entire Stronghold heritage and embrace the series’ strategic, well-balanced gameplay while building, defending and expanding through the Middle Ages.”
The Stronghold Collection will combine historically accurate castle construction and management, and authentic medieval combat. Players will journey to lands of brave warriors, epic legends and fearsome weaponry, where they will build and fortify fortresses; lay siege to intrepid enemies; and conquer harsh terrains. The Stronghold Collection includes the following games:
- Stronghold: The original, award-winning castle sim that
takes players through medieval Britain as they lead strategic military and
economic expansion, defend against invaders, and conquer enemy castles.
- Stronghold 2: The King, having fled after the defeat of
his own armies, is now attempting to rule his country from a secret
location. Powerful barons are jostling for what is fast becoming a
disintegrating kingdom, and it is up to you to stem the tides of their
ambition and unite the land again under the King.
- Stronghold Crusader and Stronghold Crusader Extreme:
Journey to distant Arabian lands and lead a determined group of Crusaders.
Relive the historic Crusades in four campaigns as Richard the Lionheart and
Saladin, the Sultan of Syria. Stronghold Crusader Extreme adds 20 new
missions, new buildings and larger armies of 10,000 troops.
- Stronghold Legends: Play as epic leaders throughout history, including King Arthur and the forces of Camelot, Siegfried and Dietrich in the German Ice Campaign, and Vlad Dracul and his evil forces in Transylvania.
The Stronghold™ Collection is rated T for Teen by the ESRB.
