What's Next for Stronghold?

New Stronghold Reveal in 2018
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zw79RHYr-5M
We’re kicking off the year with a short announcement on the status of our upcoming Stronghold game! It gives us great pleasure to announce that we have now entered into full production on the next mainline Stronghold for PC.

Planned for late summer, our full gameplay reveal will include the following:
  • Title & Setting - It may surprise you to know that 'Stronghold Next' is just a code name! So we'll be announcing this along with the game's setting.
  • Planned Features - We'll be talking single player and multiplayer plans for Stronghold Next and the return of some fan-favorite features.
  • Game Mechanics - Fresh gameplay will give you exciting new ways to play and strategic options for decimating foes on the battlefield.
  • New Units - Our debut gameplay footage will include a few of the new units you'll be using to besiege your friends at launch.
As with Stronghold Crusader 2, Stronghold Next will be digitally self-published by Firefly Studios and released when it’s ready on Steam. Please look forward to more Stronghold Next information in the coming months and if you have questions about the game let us know!

Along with announcements and interviews we’ll be hosting community Q&As where the Stronghold team answers YOUR questions. So tell us what you want to know in the comments and we’ll do our best to answer them in future videos.

Happy New Year!

Small Update

We have fixed a few issues with how the game functions:

- Using Steam invites in multiplayer now launches the game correctly for the joining player

- Some players have reported having problems loading/saving games because the game cannot successfully path to the config files in their Documents folder. We have added an override file that allows you to manually set a new path for the config files. Full details on how to use the file can be found here: https://support.fireflyworlds.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/202/0/i-cant-save-or-load-games

- Fixed an issue in the help files causing some characters to display incorrectly
