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 the Far East, 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.

New Samurai and Imperial Troops
May 15, 2020

This new entry in our ‘Soldiers of Warlords‘ series finally takes us to feudal Japan as we reveal the first Japanese troop type coming to Stronghold: Warlords. With the ability to charge down enemy units foolish enough to stand in their way and eliminate high profile targets like enemy Lords, the Samurai makes for a unique addition to your medieval army. True to their historical roots and long history in games, we’ve done justice to these disciplined feudal fighters with an interesting set of attributes and powerful unit ability.

We also return once more to ancient China with the reveal of two additional Imperial troop types, namely the mace-wielding Guardsman and almost unstoppable Imperial Warrior. Expensive to recruit and powerful once mastered, these Imperial troops will make a serious dent in any enemy siege force. With the Guardsman’s ability to deal area damage when he swings his Heavy Mace and the high damage output of the thickly armoured Warrior, we expect Imperial troops to feature in the later stages of the single player campaign and online multiplayer.
