Gamecock Media Group (Dementium: The Ward, Fury
) has announced it will publish Firefly Studios’ Stronghold Crusader Extreme
, an update to the developer's 2001 original Stronghold Crusader
PC real-time strategy title, currently slated for a May 2008 launch.
Stronghold Crusader Extreme
again casts the player as a warlord in the era of the Crusades, tasked with city-building and RTS defend-and-conquer gameplay.
The revamped version features 20 new missions, battles with over 10,000 units on screen at a time, and adds a tactical aid bar that allows players to use "super moves" against enemies. Finally, Stronghold Crusader Extreme
adds a new Extreme Trail with various linked missions for advanced players.
Gamecock president Harry Miller commented, "Stronghold
fans demand the most from their RTS and simulation games, and Firefly delivers once again. Crusader Extreme
steps up and delivers medieval Mayhem on a scale previously unseen in the series. Firefly has nurtured their baby into a true, manic adult.”
