Stronghold 2 Demo
The demo allows you to play one campaign, which is spread across three missions. This should give you a taste of the game. The demo also contains a tutorial which we recommend playing first, especially if you are new to Stronghold games. It isn't too long and explains the game's main concepts.
Don't forget to use the hints, tips and tutorial sections available in each mission, if you get stuck in the game. You can access them mid game, through the mission briefing screen by clicking on the back arrow next to the mini map.
