You can expect to see a load of Stronghold Next gameplay and news this year, starting with the world's best known gaming expo. We can't wait to show you what we've been working on in the form of an official Stronghold Discord, feature length documentary, behind the scenes videos and plenty of raw gameplay.

For our other fans we have a brand new game reveal planned for next week, as well as plenty of Stronghold Kingdoms updates. Our new title will be another historical strategy game featuring classic Firefly gameplay mixed with a few new innovations, so stick around for the full announcement!

About This Game

The original castle sim, Stronghold HD allows you to design, build and destroy historical castles. Engage in medieval warfare against the AI in one of two single player campaigns or online with up to 8 players.



With 21 missions to test your mettle and four renegade lords to defeat, it is up to you to reunite medieval England and take back your lands from the treacherous Rat, Pig, Snake and Wolf. Missions range from breaking sieges and capturing enemy castles to raising gold and holding off enemy attacks. Also featured is a full economic campaign, tasking players to gather resources and build weapons within the time limit.



Wield greater control over your army than ever before with new high resolution graphics! The new HD battlefield view allows you to zoom out and play in real-time, with the whole map on one screen. Advance on the castle gates while flanking the enemy from behind, feign retreat and lead your foe into a deadly trap or just sit back and watch the destruction unfold.
