PAX Gameplay Trailer
Playable for the first time ever stateside at PAX West 2019, Stronghold: Warlords is the latest in Firefly Studios’ classic ‘castle sim’ series. Today we reveal the first ever Warlords gameplay taken direct from our PAX alpha demo, in a brand new gameplay trailer that hints at the power and depth of the new Warlords system. Watch our latest trailer now for an early look at some of the new units, siege weapons and castle defences coming to Stronghold in 2020!
In 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 favour.
Protecting your stronghold has never been more important with attacks possible on multiple fronts from enemy characters and Warlords. Players will need to utilise new gunpowder-based siege weapons, units and castle defences 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.
