Happy New Year! Firefly begins a promising 2020 with a look back over an exciting year of Stronghold: Warlords and Romans: Age of Caesar development. First a Stronghold: Warlords update straight from Senior Producer Paul Harris. From our initial E3 announcement to subsequent improvements for troops, walls, fear factor, fire and more, the Stronghold production team had a busy year indeed. Fuelled by feedback, design debates, reams of new code and a bunch of promising suggestions from the community, it’s been a fast and furious ride set to continue toward release in 2020.
We then catch up with Online Producer Ben Tarrant and his co-op city builder team working on Romans: Age of Caesar. An entirely different beast full of unique production challenges and lofty design goals, Romans has made great progress in 2019. With our first public Alpha now underway and the game’s update road map revealed, our dedicated group of community testers will be helping us mould this epic MMO throughout 2020 as we return to Rome!
If you want to stay up to date on everything Firefly Studios, including both Warlords and Romans: Age of Caesar, we will of course be continuing our regular video update schedule in 2020. In addition you can also now join the Official Stronghold Discord and follow us on Twitter to be the first to hear the latest announcements straight from Firefly!
