Greetings Sire! This winter our kingdom expands, we’ve conquered the lands of our enemies. Two talented Stronghold 3 Community members Sorin and Dennis created 11 maps for us to enjoy:
• 3 Siege Maps (Ironforge, Thunderbluff and Chateau de Falaise);
• 2 Freebuild maps (so you can build a peaceful kingdom);
• 6 Multiplayer maps (for two and three players to show your skills in battle against other human players);
The update is free and available for PC version of Stronghold 3 Gold and it will automatically download on your computer.
Stronghold 3 Gold now includes 11 new PC maps created by community users, including: 3 Siege Maps, 2 Freebuild Maps and 6 Multiplayer Maps.
Available for PC, Mac & Linux, Stronghold 3 Gold contains the Blackstaff 5 mission single player campaign and bonus Historical Sieges.
Set during the events of Stronghold 3’s military story, the Blackstaff campaign follows Thomas Blackstaff as he hunts down the three escaped sons of The Rat. Travel across the sea to Greyshore Island to battle the Evil Brotherhood.
Bigger than ever before, the world’s favorite castle sim now contains 3 core campaigns (including the new Blackstaff Campaign), 4 multiplayer modes (including the new Coronation mode), a free build sandbox mode and 12 historical sieges.

|Graphics||8/10 The games graphics are probably the best in the Stronghold series, but there are problems stated about this below|
|Modes||2/10 The lack of modes is terrible, there is no more skirmishes, there is a great lack of siege battles (and those siege battles are pathetic). There is no built in editor either.|
|Campaign||1/10 The campaign is terrible! I haven't even got through the first mission it was SO poor!|
|Building placement||3/10 This is a true horror. They added a nice new way to rotate buildings, but the downside is, it takes longer to place buildings now! But whats worse is the spaceing! You can't place buildings closer than 6 feet now! Buildings are so spaced, but the maps (which I won't do a category on) are also terrible! You can only place buildings on 1/4 of the map, because of the elevation, and the strict limits! You have to be careful of where you place, and you can only place so few buildings because of the stupid placement system.|
|Bugs and crashes||4/10 I myself haven't saw much bugs (but I have heard of a lot) But crashes, theres a lot of that too. Not even 2 hours, and I already had a crash. The first Stronghold is more stable with crashes, even though I have Windows 8 and no compability mode on!|
|How it runs||2/10 LAG LAG LAG and low FPS. I really don't know if its my computer or the game, but it has a low FPS. Other people have stated there was lag though. But it is bad... I can run 800 people with a small castle on the map in Stronghold 2 on high graphics, here I can't run 100 people on the map with even medium graphics. Avoid.|
|Extra||Once, a Youtuber named DiplexHeated said,"The buildings are terrible. It all just feels like a village, unlike a castle you'd see in Stronghold 2."|
