Stronghold Next News

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n7O_5HqU_fc
Following our extensive Mega Q&A series we’re rounding off the year with a full development update for Stronghold Next! We dive into the production, programming, art and design of Next in our first ever dev diary for the upcoming castle sim. Watch as four Stronghold developers provide a snapshot of where we’re at in terms of production, as well as revealing brand new details about the game!

Player feedback is already a huge part of the development for Next and in our end of year update we go into specifics. We’re improving castle walls, adding classic castle life features, a more cinematic single player campaign and more. In addition the team are planning technical improvements including staged destruction for your castle, better textures and of course all-new units with fresh animations.
