Stronghold Next Interview

Lead Coder Talks Stronghold @ PAX East
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1myBHEh60v8
Our second major update on the Stronghold front comes from the game's Lead Programmer himself! While at PAX East showing players our new tactical dungeon crawler MetaMorph: Dungeon Creatures, we sit down with Tony to discuss the upcoming game's setting, returning features, overall gameplay and direction.

To tide everyone over until our next feature and the full gameplay reveal later this year, this interview covers a number of points of interest for series fans:
  • Sequel? - Tony confirms that Stronghold Next will be neither Stronghold Crusader 3 nor Legends 2. These games could still happen, but we have no plans at this time.
  • Returning Features - In addition to confirming skirmish for the game, our new interview sheds light on a few classic features and units returning for this brand new Stronghold.
  • Sim Gameplay - While our next game will retain the full RTS and besieging experience, it will also shift the focus a little back to the simulation gameplay we all know and love.
  • No Magic! - Not a single wand, pointy hat or dragon in sight.

Our upcoming Stronghold will be self-published by Firefly Studios on Steam and released when it's ready. In addition to Next being a completely new entry in the series another top priority is to deliver a fun, polished game from day one that incorporates as many fan-favourite features and touches as possible.

Please look forward to more Stronghold information in the coming months and subscribe on YouTube for the latest Stronghold Next news, trailers and interviews.

About This Game



Live the life of a medieval lord in Stronghold Kingdoms, the world’s first persistent castle MMO. A unique PC Strategy game, Stronghold Kingdoms brings together online interactivity and community, with a richly-depicted medieval world and thousands of real world players.

Key Features

  • Build Your Online Stronghold - Crush the invading hordes with impenetrable castle defences. Then launch a counterattack!
  • Plot the Perfect Village - Plan your village layout, arrange buildings for maximum productivity and watch it come to life.
  • Explore a Vast Research Tree - Are you a farmer, trader, diplomat or warlord? Research new technology to specialise and gain the edge.
  • Fight For Your Faction - Join a faction, attack its enemies and return triumphant with their captured banners!
  • Play for Free! - Stronghold Kingdoms is free to play with no subscription or upfront payment required.



Besiege the castle that’s never been taken, overthrow ruthless tyrants, bankroll your faction’s war effort, pillage your neighbour’s resources, peacefully raise cattle or do it all! A range of stats, rankings and achievements gives every player something to aim for, from ‘Banquet King’ and ‘Peacebringer’ to 'Besieger of the Month' and ‘Lionheart'! Factions, elections, liege lords and their vassals all provide a real sense of structured community, with many different ways to chat with other players, discuss strategies and build allegiances.



While an impregnable castle should be at the heart of any lord or lady's domain, you can also specialise with a vast research tree. Starting as a humble peasant, each promotion brings with it valuable research points to spend on trading, diplomacy, warfare, farming, religion and more. Be aware though, as your power grows so does your responsibility. Your vassals and parishioners will look to you for guidance and leadership. You may find yourself fighting for the crown itself!
