Join Dunk as he returns once more to the lands of classic 'castle sim' action, with discounts on all Stronghold games on Steam. With up to 90% off the Stronghold series and Crusader HD available for less than a cup of coffee, you'd have to be as dim as Dunk to let these deals escape you!

Stronghold: Warlords - Classic Gameplay

7 Classic Castle Sim Features
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2qv4h39Gahc
What do Laddermen, the Scribe, Siege Towers, Strong Walls and Fear Factor all have in common? They’re beloved features of past Stronghold games returning in Stronghold: Warlords! Hot on the heels of our E3 announcement Nick returns to run through seven classic castle sim features returning in our latest Stronghold title.



Revealed earlier this month at E3 2019, Stronghold: Warlords is a step forward for Stronghold gameplay but also something of a greatest hits in terms of features. A new version of the Scribe will return in several areas of gameplay, Fear Factor and other castle life features will allow you to customise your economy as you please and both Laddermen and Siege Towers make their glorious return! Walls have also been completely reworked to build better, feel more customizable and stronger than ever before.



The idea with Stronghold: Warlords is to deliver a fresh experience in a new setting, but also a really fully featured and polished version of the Stronghold players know and love. Even the titular Warlords system is an evolution of a classic Stronghold feature, taking Estates far beyond their humble beginning to something approaching proper grand strategy. The very best Warlords players will combine mastery of this new mechanic with classic Stronghold tactics to crush their enemies, see them driven before you and hear the lamentations of their peasants.
