Stronghold 2 (SH2) is the sequel to Stronghold released April 2005, introducing lots of gameplay elements. Stronghold 2 is rendered in 3D which makes unit movement easier and gives a more realistic feel for the game. It has several view modes including an architect's view which looks down on the castle directly, allowing for easier placing of buildings.


It is medieval England, the King of England mysteriously disappeared and turmoil reigns throughout the country. You control Matthew Steele, a page of the loyal knight Sir William, who is determined to find the lost King. As you promote and gain combat experience, you will soon be recognized by your enemies, most notably by the warlord Lord Barclay. You can choose to either join William and their group to take down the usurpers or join Barclay to make use of his clan's influence to get to the throne.
