Firefly End of Year Outtakes

Matt doesn’t know what to do with his hands, Paul does and Andreas keeps messing up his lines… It’s must be the Firefly Studios end of year outtakes! We take you behind the scenes to everything from how we’ve been improving retention and begging for subs through to what has come to be known as the ‘Hubba Bubba Saga’.

Watch as we fail time and time again to produce useable footage with two whole months’ worth of company outtakes. There’s swearing, sweating and everything in between as we pull back the curtain revealing our inner workings and ‘creative process’.

We hope you enjoy this bumper dose of outtakes and look forward to many more in 2019!

Stronghold Next Update

Following our extensive Mega Q&A series we’re rounding off the year with a full development update for Stronghold Next! We dive into the production, programming, art and design of Next in our first ever dev diary. Watch as four Stronghold developers reveal brand new details about the game!

Player feedback is already a huge part of the development and in our new update we go into specifics. We’re improving castle walls, adding classic castle life features, a more cinematic single player campaign and more. In addition the team are planning technical improvements including staged castle destruction, better textures and of course all-new units.

While this is our final Stronghold Next video for 2018 you can expect much more in 2019! We’ll hit the ground running next year working toward our gameplay reveal and everything to come between that and release.

Stronghold Next – 40 Questions

Multiplayer! Units! Defenses! Our latest Stronghold Next video reveals new details by answering 40 of YOUR questions about the game. Join Nick and Aaron for a detailed discussion about our upcoming game, guided by questions from previous Stronghold Next videos.

Ahead of our full update from the team next week, today Firefly illuminates a few finer details requested by fans. How many Lords can join a multiplayer game? Will there be healing units? Will regular troops be able to knock down castle walls? Together these smaller issues make a huge difference to Stronghold, so we’re laying out our plans at this early stage.

If your questions weren’t in today’s video it’s because we simply can’t discuss the topic until after our gameplay reveal. We will however continue to answer fan questions on YouTube and live streams after the reveal, so keep them coming! Don’t forget to subscribe to Firefly Studios on YouTube to catch our full development update and gameplay reveal.
