Stronghold Crusader 2 Enters Closed Beta, System Requirements Revealed


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.

“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
Processor: Intel Core2 Duo 2Ghz or equivalent
Memory: 2GB RAM
Video: NVIDIA GeForce 8800GT 512MB or AMD Radeon HD 2900XT 512MB or better
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:
