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.

As shown during the Gamescom Studio show, we’re giving you a first look at our Japanese campaign missions following Toyotomi Hideyoshi!

New Release Date
August 19, 2020

It is with great regret that we announce we will not be able to meet the September 29th release date previously announced for Stronghold: Warlords. After much deliberation we have now made the very difficult decision to shift the launch of the game to January 26th 2021.

We hadn’t intended for the recent global situation to impact our development, and when we announced September 29th as the release date we fully believed we would succeed in meeting it. That said, the effect COVID-19 has had on us as individuals, as well as a company, has brought us to the point where we’ve had to take a step back, assess what areas of development still need work, and make the tough, but necessary decision to delay.

We can’t apologise enough for any disappointment caused, but we hope you understand that we want to give our community the best Stronghold experience possible.

New Warlords Gameplay
July 31, 2020

Today we’re showing half an hour of brand new Mongolian campaign gameplay footage! Featuring developer commentary from Stronghold: Warlords Lead Programmer Tony DeLibero, this new video features hitherto unrevealed units, warlords and castle structures. A snapshot of the later stages of Warlords’ Mongolian campaign segment, today’s campaign preview takes players to 1227 AD as the great Khan moves to crush rebelling Xia forces. Surrounded on all fronts by hostile warlords and a well-protected enemy lord, players must first rush to bring each warlord under their command, before launching an all out siege on the enemy. Attacking immediately would be foolish, however with enough warlords pledging their gold, resources and troops, players can amass an army powerful enough to take down the enemy stronghold.
