Stronghold Crusader 2 is a very important game for us and our plan is to support it extensively going forwards. As a result we will be releasing regular updates to Stronghold Crusader 2 over the coming weeks and months. The first fixes will be essential stability fixes with gameplay and balance bugs being addressed after that. We also have a number of feature updates planned which we will announce nearer the time.
We will keep this thread updated with all update notes as and when they are made available.
Please note: We are aware of some reports of crashes on the forums. Often these are random crashes that are difficult for us to reproduce. If you have a save game that reproduces a crash soon after loading please submit a support ticket to support.fireflyworlds.com
Thanks for your continuing feedback and support.

As our first expansion-style update for Stronghold Crusader 2, we hope the Winter Update conveys our commitment to the game post-release and into 2015. Players can now log into Steam, automatically download the latest version and gain access to six new skirmish maps by visiting the Crusader 2 Steam Workshop page. In addition to Steam Workshop support and the Classic Map Pack, we have also added several advanced Multiplayer features requested by players. These Multiplayer options are designed to allow Crusader Lords and Ladies to tailor their experience of the game by turning off certain units, gameplay features and even change the way walls can be damaged by other players.
Please enjoy the new update and look forward to more content and DLC next year!
