Many of you will be happy to hear that the Stronghold 2 v1.4.1 is now available to download through the in game auto patching system or through manual download (like here!). The patch will work with all languages (EN-US, EN-UK, IT, ES, FR).
To install this patch you first need to install version 1.4. Any versions of the game prior to 1.4 using the auto-patching service will update the game to version 1.4 and will then need to update again to version 1.4.1. Alternatively, you can download the 1.4 patch here: http://www.gamershell.com/download_21006.shtml
