Stronghold 3: Gold Edition

Hi all,

We are delighted to announce Stronghold 3: Gold Edition! The new Gold Edition is set for release on 25 May 2012 for PC and Mac, it bundles the latest version of Stronghold 3 with a new “Blackstaff” single player campaign. It will also unlock all 12 historical sieges, previously only available through special editions of the game. Anyone that purchased Stronghold 3 before the launch of the Gold Edition on 25 May will have their copy of the game automatically upgraded to Stronghold 3: Gold Edition through Steam.

So you've had development resources working on a new product and new content rather than fixing the diabolical mess you've still got on the original product.

I'm glad to hear that you've enjoyed misappropriating hard-earned money.

I see there are new campaigns and modes but if the core game/online isnt or cannot be stabilized i see no reason to purchase this especially for 39.99.

I just saw the DLC on Steam, clicked on it, and found out I already own it. Thanks for the unexpected gesture, it's appreciated!

I finally decided to give Stronghold 3 a go as well. The most recent strategy game I had played was Shogun 2 and while a pretty good game overall I fealt it lacked any real creative freedom. I opted buying Shogun instead of Stronghold in the first place mainly because of the state in which this game was released.

Although way to early to give an honest opinion of Stronghold 3 I can at least state I haven't experienced any technical problems or framerate issues in single player so far while running the game on max settings.

Intel i7 @3.40

Not seeing Blackstaff DLC

The game is updated to 1.10.27781 but I cannot see the Blackstaff campaign anywhere, steam tells me I already own the Blackstaff DLC. It is not listed under Stronghold 3 DLC's nor is anything mentioning gold edition. I've verified the game cache. Any ideas how to play Blackstaff?

Would rather have had skirmish. That way I'd actually bother to play the game for more than 1 hour. Campaign is .
