Stronghold Europe is an international Stronghold Crusader mod with a long story. The mod was started in 2009 and has been continued by many modders for whole 8 years. The main goal of this mod is to achieve the original Stronghold european atmosphere with all features from Stronghold Crusader. You may install Stronghold Europe without overwriting any Stronghold Crusader files, so your Stronghold Crusader game will stay intact!

Really awesome mod!

I always loved the original game's setting but like many others was put off by the lack of a skirmish mode and so I opted to mostly play Crusader.

This mod features all of the new and improved mechanics of Stronghold Crusader (minus Arab mercs for obvious reasons) set in the lovely atmosphere of the original Stronghold.

It's a shame Firefly themselves didn't make an expansion like this a long time ago, it's a no-brainer imo.


Amazing mod! Absolutely worth it! Looking forward to upcoming releases :)


This is the Stronghold that I’ve been wishing to play for years, this mod makes Stronghold what it should have been. Absolutely wonderfully done.

The only thing I would have like to see is more European lords, and the mercenaries changed to European types. Top notch work!

Consistently fun and challenging campaign maps and crusader trail. A lot of hours of fun.

Well this is what i wished for a long time playing in the European setting from Stronghold HD but with AI :) pls give an option too disable Army Limit :D like in extreme would be nice. Because my friends and i mostly play with massive armys :)


One of the best mods for the great game!

Best Stronghold Crusader Mod ever. :-D

While at the moment still lacking a few things in the visual/techtree department, the potential of this mod is infinite. Instead of bringing custom skirmishes to vanilla Stronghold, they brought the medieval setting to Crusader, and in that they've almost perfectly succeeded.
