Looks like preorders for medieval seige-em-up Stronghold Crusader 2 are now available for purchase on Steam! In celebration of this opening, developer Firefly Studios recently released an all new trailer featuring the return of series antagonist, The Wolf.
Yes, The Wolf is back to be a pain in our sides once again (watch the trailer below until the very end) and he won't take our stronghold's growth and expansion all that well either. In the previous Stronghold Crusader, The Wolf was the leader of all the enemy factions in all the land. Although he won't be the main focus of SC2, he will still play a big part in the game overall (as requested by longtime fans). Will you let him stand in your way? For our own impressions of the game from E3 this year, please do take a look here.
