Stronghold Crusader 2 a Steam Exclusive

Firefly Studios announces that Stronghold Crusader 2 will launch this spring as a Steam exclusive. Marketing Manager and Miami Dolphins starting quarterback Nick Tannahill explains in this post on the official website for the siege-warfare sequel:

Our primary reason for making Crusader 2 exclusive to Steam is fairly simple then. The time required to create our own bespoke tools and systems for such features could end up delaying the game for the wrong reasons, which nobody wants, without necessarily providing better functionality. It sounds clichéd but this is win-win, we get to include the features fans of the genre expect without delaying the game or taking our focus away from core gameplay features.

Stronghold Crusader 2, Developed for PC Steam.

Shackled and bound by the the Snake, the Pig or the Caliph is more preferable than the Steamworks DRM.

The physical box copies also will use it, so there is no escape. Wink

So disable achievements in the drm free version then...

Sim City requires online because of all the online features in the game, right

This game was the bomb back in the day. I think there's still life here, if they make a real sequel and not a stupid free to play game.

Every Stronghold game since the original Crusader has sucked. I see no indication that this will buck that trend.

They're still milking this dead franchise? What a shame...
