Stronghold Crusader 2/Stronghold Warlords is sold in a number of regions around the world.  Different regions offer different language versions, so not all languages may be available for you to choose from.

Please be aware of keystores offering discounts for Stronghold Crusader 2/Stronghold Warlords keys which only contain a limited selection of languages.

We only sell our game through Steam, GOG and selected digital and retail partners.  It is very likely that the version being offered by the keystore is a version which has been restricted to specific languages.  As a result this version will only contain text and audio files specific to those languages.  If you purchased a Stronghold Crusader 2/Stronghold Warlords key from a keystore and it is missing languages that were listed on the keystore product page, please contact the keystore.
