22 Ways To Die in Stronghold: Warlords
This week we thought we’d take a break between the countless player questions about Stronghold: Warlords (Join the Discord if you have more!) and co-op multiplayer previews for a chance of pace. Warlords features a whopping 16 units and 10 siege weapons, in addition to many different castle defences and other special units like the warlords themselves. This got us thinking… Just how many ways are there for soldiers, peasants, monks and innocent diplomats to die in the game?
It turns out the answer to that question is at least 22! That’s right. We counted 22 unique means by which these virtual lives can be snuffed out in an instant (Not Pictured: Death by flooding). So what better way to celebrate this digital carnage than with a montage of death and destruction? Set to the tune of the William Tell Overture by Rossini, watch as our Videographer Aaron Hayden cuts, crushes, incinerates and obliterates his peasant population in the name of your entertainment.
If you’d like to try your hand at orchestrating complicated, gunpowder-related fatalities in Stronghold: Warlords at launch, then be sure to wishlist the game ahead of its March 9th release on Steam. You’ll find out as soon as the game comes out, be notified of any launch discount and be among the first to catapult diseased animals over enemy walls at launch.
