Lead Coder Talks Stronghold @ PAX Easthttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1myBHEh60v8
Our second major update on the Stronghold front comes from the game's Lead Programmer himself! While at PAX East showing players our new tactical dungeon crawler MetaMorph: Dungeon Creatures
, we sit down with Tony to discuss the upcoming game's setting, returning features, overall gameplay and direction.
To tide everyone over until our next feature and the full gameplay reveal later this year, this interview covers a number of points of interest for series fans:
- Sequel? - Tony confirms that Stronghold Next will be neither Stronghold Crusader 3 nor Legends 2. These games could still happen, but we have no plans at this time.
- Returning Features - In addition to confirming skirmish for the game, our new interview sheds light on a few classic features and units returning for this brand new Stronghold.
- Sim Gameplay - While our next game will retain the full RTS and besieging experience, it will also shift the focus a little back to the simulation gameplay we all know and love.
- No Magic! - Not a single wand, pointy hat or dragon in sight.
Our upcoming Stronghold will be self-published by Firefly Studios on Steam and released when it's ready. In addition to Next being a completely new entry in the series another top priority is to deliver a fun, polished game from day one that incorporates as many fan-favourite features and touches as possible.
