Crowdfunding Begins for Stronghold Crusader 2

Crowdfunding has now begun for Stronghold Crusader 2 at For those who have never before heard of Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Gambitious, crowdfunding allows fans to “pledge” towards a project in return for rewards and to be a part of its creation! In the case of Crusader 2, fans of the original game can donate to the project in return for the following rewards (in addition to the warm fuzzy feeling they get from helping us make the game we have always wanted to make):

• Digital copy of Stronghold Crusader 2 (More than 50% off launch price)
• Access to exclusive backer-only forum
• Credit in-game
• €10 and €30 Pledge Packs containing Crowns for Stronghold Kingdoms
• Digital Soundtrack
• Digital Artbook
• Digital copies of Stronghold HD and Stronghold Crusader HD
• Multiplayer beta access
• Physical limited edition boxed copy of Stronghold Crusader 2 with physical artbook
• Additional digital copies of Stronghold Crusader 2
• Your name custom-recorded for playback in-game as a greeting
• Invitation to the Stronghold Crusader 2 Launch Party in London

You can help fund the latest crusade by clicking here -

Crusader 2 is currently scheduled for release in early 2014. The Gambitious crowdfund gives players the opportunity to pre-order the game for a fraction of the usual cost, in addition to gaining access to the other exclusive rewards listed above.

Funds raised through Gambitious will be put toward game polish, a closed beta and additional game content. Crusader is our favourite game, your favourite game and Crusader 2 is the game we have been wanting to make for more than 10 years.

So join the crusade and help us make Crusader 2 the ultimate skirmish game!

A curious question I have is what if the crowdfunding doesn't meet or exceed it's goals? Will those who paid for beta multiplayer passes get to play the beta?

Unfortunately the fundraising campaign did not succeed.
Here is the official notice from Firefly Studios:

Thanks to everyone who supported our Gambitious crowdfunding campaign for Stronghold Crusader 2. Whether you donated, shared the news with friends or simply viewed one of our update videos we hugely appreciate you spreading the word. As you know our campaign did not fully fund, however rest assured all pledges have been cancelled and backers will not be charged any money. Crusader 2, the sequel to our favourite Stronghold game, will still be made and we will still be holding a beta.

Thanks for that update. Sad to hear they did not get enough to use that option.
