Firefly Studios announced today that Stronghold Crusader 2 has gone gold and to celebrate, the team has released new gameplay footage of the series’ most notorious AI opponent, the Wolf.
“Stronghold is known for its tendency to test players’ mental dexterity and with the resurgence of these kinds of games it makes perfect sense to include The Wolf” the developer said and continued.
“We want this addition to the cast of AI characters to reinforce our message that Crusader 2 retains the series’ sense of challenge. When you are victorious against The Wolf, or any character for that matter, it should feel like an absolute triumph.”
Skirmish matches against The Wolf are characterised by his ability to build strong defences early on, turtling until he can amass an army of the game’s most heavily armoured units.
Rushing The Wolf is difficult, but the longer players leave him alone the more dangerous he becomes. Therefore, and in order to stand a chance, players must match his numbers and employ effective counter troops.
