Stronghold: Warlords will feature several single player game modes, with the main story split between a combat-heavy military campaign and the more city-builder focused bonus campaign. The full four-part historical military campaign will be set across ancient Vietnam, China, Japan and Mongolia, with players balancing between castle besieging and economic gameplay to succeed over 24 missions.

Alongside this there will be a new ‘Path of Peace’ bonus campaign centered around castle building, resource gathering and feudal events. With the ability to boost or crush a player’s peasant popularity rating, events will change fortunes with the coming of monsoon rains, lightning storms, bandit attacks, wildfires, festivals, typhoons and more!

Players will have to make the most of Stronghold: Warlords’ new castle sim mechanics to battle against thinning food supplies, accidental gunpowder explosions, local bandits and revolt from their own peasants. Temples must be built to produce popularity-boosting Spirit, Hovels created to house castle dwellers, farms to feed feudal families and tailors to clothe them. In addition players will be able to show their true colours with medieval entertainment and torture devices from the Far East, available to instill love or fear in the hearts of their subjects. If all else fails tax, torture or treat peasants to adjust their mood accordingly!

Scheduled for release on Steam this year, players can find out more about Stronghold: Warlords by visiting the game’s official website: www.StrongholdWarlords.com
