Stronghold: Warlords is headed to PAX West 2019 and to celebrate they're releasing a new trailer and diving just a wee bit into the power and depth of the new 'Warlords' system
“Warlords has come a long way since our E3 reveal” said Nick Tannahill, Marketing Director at Firefly Studios. “We’ve
been paying close attention to fan feedback and made a range of
graphical improvements, in addition to adding new units and siege
weapons. We’ve also upgraded the look and feel of the Warlords system,
which is fully playable at PAX West”.
Stronghold: Warlords victory is decided by players who effectively
target and recruit AI Warlords in each mission or map. By recruiting
specific Warlords at the right time players can send themselves extra
resources, buff their army, launch sieges from Warlord castles or even
team up for a pincer attack! By unlocking more powerful castles, armies
and abilities each Warlord has the potential to disrupt the flow of
battle and turn the tide in your favor.
your stronghold has never been more important with attacks possible on
multiple fronts from enemy characters and Warlords. Players will need to
utilize new gunpowder-based siege weapons, units and castle defenses to
hold off their advances, as AI characters recruit and lay siege to
players supported by their own set of powerful Warlords. The rocket
tower, gunpowder trap, fire lancer, fire oxen and more will be
invaluable tools the next time you find yourself under siege and backed
into a corner. Just remember Warlords can always be swayed to your side.
Build up enough Diplomacy points, form the right alliances and you may
conquer the battlefield without raising a single sword of your own.

combines the city-builder and real-time strategy genres, allowing you
to design, build and siege historical castles. Now almost 20 years old, Stronghold has
become a multi-million-selling franchise and household name for
strategy and simulation gamers worldwide. A passion for large scale
castle sieges, memorable characters, and British humor has earned Stronghold
its enduring status in PC gaming as an RTS classic. Alongside six core
titles selling seven million copies worldwide, the series has recently
expanded to include free-to-play and mobile titles with over six million
players of Stronghold Kingdoms, Firefly’s most successful entry in the series to date. For the latest news on Stronghold: Warlords visitwww.strongholdwarlords.com or follow @fireflyworlds on Twitter.
