GodGames has released new information about the siege warfare game currently in development at London-based FireFly Studios. The game will put players in command of a castle, and they must build defenses and manage the stronghold while resisting attacks. Players will control all aspects of castle life, including the regulation of taxes and rations, and they can hold fairs and even give away free ale. The goal of the game is to mount an invasion of the enemy's fortress while keeping their own fortress safe. The game will feature a single-player campaign as well as a complete multiplayer mode for up to eight players. In multiplayer mode, players will be able to compete head-to-head, form alliances against others, or even work together on the same castle in cooperative mode.

Stronghold will include more than 30 types of walls, towers, and anti-siege equipment to help customize and protect the castle. In addition to building castle defenses, players can build workshop structures to add bonuses and services. The game will include more than 50 types of workshop structures, such as bakeries, grain mills, armories, blacksmiths, fletcher shops, mining facilities, and quarry sites.

The game's combat elements will focus on siege warfare and castle defense. Players will form armies that must simultaneously defend the castle from attack and try to invade the enemy castle. A variety of combat units will be available through different training facilities. Some of the troop types include knights, archers, siege engineers, tunnelers, and ladder bearers. Different kinds of siege equipment will also be featured in the game, including siege towers, ballistas, catapults, and battering rams.
