Stronghold Screen Shots, Details
11:57 AM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story
GameSpot has published a small gallery of new screen shots from the castle builder/strategy title Stronghold which is nearing completion for the PC. While as with all GameSpot shots these are small, blurry and stamped with a big 'G,' they are still a sight to behold and only fuel our excitement for the promised Mac OS version of this game, which currently has no schedule for release.
A short synopsis of the game's plot and features accompanies the screen shots; while no new information is revealed, the summary provides a quick overview of what to expect:
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 PC version of this game is due out next month, with a demo version already available. MacSoft will publish the Mac version, though who is doing the port and when it will arrive have yet to be determined.
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.
