We’ve just released new single player gameplay footage for Stronghold: Warlords, the latest RTS ‘castle sim’ from Firefly Studios. Taken from the Chinese portion of the game’s 31 mission campaign, the ‘Armies of Yan’ occurs toward the end of the Warring States period in 226 BC. Over the course of 40 minutes of uninterrupted gameplay, Senior Programmer Matt Smith walks us through the latest additions to the castle building RTS series. Showcasing new units like the Fire Lancer, the titular warlords mechanic and castle sieges, this video is the first in a new series providing an early look at the game’s main single player game mode.
As Warlords approaches launch new campaign previews will be released on our YouTube to tease game features and improvements, but also to collect feedback from players. With particular attention to community requests, new Warlord abilities and of course ‘wuselfaktor’, we’ve been paying close attention to player suggestions since the game’s E3 reveal. For over a year now our designers and devs have been processing feedback on the game’s visuals, sound effects and most recently gameplay using our Steam Game Fest demo.
Castle builders will be able to journey from ancient China and Vietnam to feudal Japan and the Mongol Empire when Stronghold: Warlords launches on Steam later this year.
