Firefly Studios has announced that the HD re-releases of Stronghold and Stronghold Crusader will be launching the first of next month. They have been remastered to support 2560x1600 resolutions.

High definition visuals compliment the ability to see "an entire battlefield on a single screen." Stronghold Crusader HD includes Warchest and Extreme content with an increased 10k unit cap.

This is hailed as the Stronghold fans wet dream, basically. Stronghold and Stronghold Crusader both released back in 2001 and 2002 respectively.

"Stronghold HD tasks players with 21 missions and four renegade lords to defeat. Missions range from breaking sieges and capturing enemy castles to raising gold and holding off enemy attacks, with the ultimate goal of reuniting medieval England. Also featured is an economic campaign, with missions revolving around gathering resources and building weapons within a time limit," blurbed the press release.

"Stronghold Crusader HD shifts from Europe to the Middle East during the First, Second and Third Crusades. This fan favourite sequel to the original Stronghold introduces fiendish AI opponents, new units, new characters, 4 historical campaigns and over 100 unique skirmish missions."

"Stronghold Crusader HD comes packaged with content from both the Stronghold Warchest and Stronghold Crusader Extreme, including an increased unit cap of 10,000, new missions and special Tactical Powers."

Stronghold HD and Stronghold Crusader HD will be available on various digital storefronts November 1st.

Definitely will look out for this one - haven't played them in years. Should be a very welcome return to the glory days of the franchise.
