Our first ever playable demo of Stronghold: Warlords made it across the world this month as we flew from Gamescom to PAX West, finally letting fans get their first hands-on experience with the game courtesy of our hardworking developers. Stronghold players of all ages and experience levels gathered at our booths to try out the new Warlords system, gunpowder-fuelled siege equipment, East Asian units and devious castle traps!
Why only allow the lucky few who were fortunate enough to be at these massive shows the chance to see our brand new Stronghold in action? Good question! Off the back of the warm player reception we received in both Cologne and Seattle we thought it would be a great idea to let the entire Stronghold community feast their eyes on the Warlords System and our Alpha demo in action! In the demo Firefly’s very own Aaron Hayden walks us through the titular Warlords System, also showcasing new buildings, units, siege equipment and castle defences as we present the first ‘vertical slice’ demo of Stronghold: Warlords.
