07/10/2014 - Stronghold Crusader 2 Enters Closed Beta
4:17 pm pdt
, UK – 10th July 2014 – Firefly Studios has just released the minimum system requirements
for their long awaited ‘castle sim’ sequel Stronghold Crusader 2. Having entered closed Beta earlier this week,
most of the remaining developing time on Crusader 2 will be spent optimising the game’s performance on PC and tweaking
gameplay. The announcement was made earlier today on the game's official website.
Stronghold Crusader 2 Enters Closed Beta, System Requirements Revealed
“When we first announced
Stronghold Crusader 2 one of the first pieces of information released was that the game will use a newly enhanced 3D engine.
By this point the team was so experienced with the Havok Vision Engine that learning something completely new and moving away
from 3D would be a waste of that knowledge. Our stated goal with Crusader 2 was to create the best 3D Stronghold game yet
and that’s exactly what we intent to deliver.
Everyone here at Firefly wants the playability of the 2D Stronghold
titles within a 3D space and our enhanced version of the Vision Engine has thankfully provided us with the tools needed to
achieve this. Naturally a concern for players at the time was ‘Will the game run on my machine?’. This is a fair
question and of course we are aiming to get the game running on a wide range of systems, performance being just as high on
our list of priorities as bug fixing. With the game currently in beta and as such feature-complete, we have already had time
to focus on optimisation and performance testing. As a result, we have been able to determine the minimum system requirements
for Stronghold Crusader 2:”
The minimum PC system requirements for Stronghold Crusader 2 are as follows:
- Operating System: Windows® XP/Windows Vista/Windows
7/Windows 8 (latest service packs) with DirectX 9.0c
Intel Core2 Duo 2Ghz or equivalent
- Memory: 2GB RAM
- Video: NVIDIA® GeForce® 8800GT 512MB or AMD Radeon™ HD 2900XT 512MB
- Storage: 6 GB available HD space
- Internet: Broadband Internet connection
The latest entry in Firefly's best selling series of medieval real-time strategy games, Stronghold Crusader 2 is
set to appear online and in store shelves on September 2nd 2014.
About Stronghold Crusader 2

of the Middle East circa 1189, Crusader 2 features a new 3D engine, authentic castle simulation and real time destruction
powered by Havok Physics. Play as Richard the Lionheart or the Sultan of Syria in 2 single-player campaigns, skirmish mode
or online with up to 8 players. For more information please visit the website at www.strongholdcrusader2.com or follow @shcrusader2 on Twitter.
