Meet Sultana, Your First Female Opponent in Stronghold Crusader 2

By   /   Sep 3, 2014

The Original Stronghold Crusader featured 16 opponents which were all men and Firefly is ready to change that with the introduction of Sultana, a historical character with Firefly’s own spin on it.

Nick Tannahill, the marketing manager at Firefly says that it’s “embarrassing” that no women has been apart of the game before.

“Looking back it’s embarrassing that out of 16 AI opponents the original Stronghold Crusader didn’t feature a single woman! A lot of our player data suggests that the Stronghold games have a predominantly male audience, as much as 90%, however this is no reason to resist being inclusive.

Sultana will have her own Al behavior, castle and mood depending on the the players interactions with her. In a developer’s dairy, in addition to her introduction, some tips were given on how to counter-attack her in a fight.

The game is known for its historical elements and diversity of culture but creators want to improve when it comes to the opposite sex.

History is in our players’ blood and while cultural diversity is great we could all do a better job when it comes to gender. You can expect both the launch line up of AI Lords and those added through post release DLC to reflect that.”

Furthermore, players who preorder the game on Steam will receive a 10% discount. Stronghold Crusader 2 will be available for PC on September 23.
