Journey Eastward

Besiege Great Khans, Imperial warlords and Shōgun commanders in Stronghold: Warlords, the next RTS in Firefly Studios' classic 'castle sim' series. The first Stronghold to recreate the castle economies of East Asia, Warlords lets you take command of Mongol hordes, imperial warriors and samurai clansmen as you lay siege to Japanese castles and fortified Chinese cities. Besiege historical rulers using new gunpowder-fuelled siege weapons, classic units and a completely new way to play Stronghold.

Recruit Warlords

For the first time ever Stronghold: Warlords allows you to recruit, upgrade and command AI lords across the battlefield in the form of in-game "Warlords". Each warlord under your command boosts your strategic prowess with unique perks, characteristics and upgradeable abilities. Put them to work for your industry, fortifying borders, forging weapons or team up for a pincer attack! Each campaign mission, skirmish game and multiplayer battle means a fresh set of warlords to command and new strategic depth to discover.

Rewrite History

From 3rd century BC China through to the coming of the Mongol Empire in 1200 AD, Stronghold: Warlords allows players to relive famous historical battles and sieges from across the Asian continent. Starting with the kingdom of Âu Lạc in Vietnam, players will take part in the founding of the Qin dynasty, Japanese shogunate and eventually the arrival of Genghis Khan on the world stage. Recruit warlords to your cause and conquer each kingdom using Imperial fire lancers, Mongolian bowmen, disciplined samurai and classic laddermen.
