Inspirations Behind Stronghold

While work continues behind-the-scenes on the Stronghold Next gameplay reveal, we take a look back at our legacy and the history that inspired it in a brand new series exclusive to the Firefly Studios YouTube channel. Introducing the ‘Inspirations Behind Stronghold’! In our first episode of this new series we explore the annals of yesteryear and explore the history of classic Stronghold units you’ve commanded on the battlefield since 2001.

What were the origins of the crossbow? How did you become a Knight? Were ‘Warrior Monks’ actually a thing? All these questions and more are answered in our first episode! As this is a completely new series produced in the midst of pre-production for the Next gameplay reveal, we’d love to hear your feedback! If you want a particular area of the Stronghold series covered next, be it siege equipment, castles or the Lords themselves, be sure to comment below to let us know.
