FireFly Studios today released a new group of screenshots from its upcoming real-time strategy game, Stronghold. The new screens show off some of the game's medieval environments, units, and structures, and they include views of several sieges in progress.
Stronghold lets players build villages, towns, and castles, and they must manage their settlements and defend against attacks. The game features four separate game modes: a non-combat economic campaign mode, a historical castle siege mode, a challenge mode, and a free-build mode that lets players design their ideal castle. Castles can be built with a variety of features, including walls, moats, drawbridges, portcullises, towers, and killing pits. Castle defenders can also repel attackers with boiling oil and fire ditches.
The attackers have a number of units and equipment options as well. The game includes units such as engineers and tunnelers, as well as siege engines like catapults, siege towers, battering rams, mangonels, ballistae, and trebuchets. In addition to more than 20 story-based missions, the game includes multiplayer support for up to eight players.
Stronghold will be published by Take-Two Interactive under the GodGames label, and it is scheduled for release next month. For more information, take a look at our previous coverage of the game.
