New contestants have entered the fray in the battle for Jerusalem! The Princess and The Pig have embarked for the holy lands bringing swords, spears and maces in a journey destined to disrupt the balance of power. Players must fight their way through a new skirmish trail with seven deadly scenarios to tackle, including three new maps. Old faces such as The Wolf, Richard the Lionheart and Saladin also make a return, smarter and more strategic than before. While these new rivals sometimes aid the player in battle, they won’t hold back when it comes to the gruesomely difficult finale.

The first piece of downloadable content available for Stronghold Crusader 2, The Princess & The Pig DLC adds seven missions, two AI opponents, 10 achievements and new castle designs unique to The Princess and The Pig. It is available now on Steam for £3.99/$5.99/€4.99.
