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.

New Roadmap & Update
July 27, 2021

Today we release our latest update for Stronghold: Warlords, alongside the reveal of our next content roadmap of updates covering the summer and autumn period! Now available on Steam and GOG, version 1.5 introduces a host of bug fixes and general improvements requested by players, while the reveal of our Summer/Autumn roadmap details our plans over the next few months.

Having now completed our Spring/Summer content roadmap, which added many requested features and improvements to the core Warlords experience, it’s time to move onto our second phase of post-launch development. Our first content roadmap addressed feedback received at launch, which was tracked and discussed internally before its reveal. This included frequent requests for new AI opponents, but also changes to AI behaviour and other fixes and improvements that were obvious low hanging fruit in the early days post launch. We built on this soon after with features planned long before launch that we knew would be popular, such as the addition of Free Build AI Invasions, our first Skirmish Trail, new warlords, the Samurai Lancer unit and more.

Skirmish Trail Update!
June 21, 2021

We have just released version 1.4 of Stronghold: Warlords, available now on Steam and GOG! The Skirmish Trail Update introduces the game’s first ‘skirmish trail’, a series of challenging missions with unique conditions to overcome and achieve victory. Other features added in the update include a new mounted soldier, two additional AI warlords, the return of a popular building for healing units and two extra multiplayer maps.

A classic mode introduced in the original Stronghold: Crusader, skirmish trails invite experienced players to display their mastery over Stronghold’s economic gameplay and RTS combat. Each trail mission pits player lords against a unique combination of AI opponents, recruitable warlords, resources, starting goods and teammates across a combination of new and existing maps. Choosing between ‘Standard’ and ‘Challenging’ difficulties, the classic ‘Chicken’ feature can also be used to skip missions players find too difficult.
