Stronghold Site Opens
9:34 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Take 2 Interactive and Firefly Studios have opened the official site for their medieval castle-builder Stronghold. Be aware that the site depends heavily on Flash, but those willing to suffer a little load time will get to peruse a huge amount of game information. Game features, screen shots, and even detailed biographies of the enemy characters you will face in the solo game are listed. One of the game's most interesting features is the ability to build or defend 12 actual historical castles, replicated with as much authenticity as possible, as well as use period weaponry while in combat.


Stronghold's gameplay is split into two parts: economic missions require you to quickly and efficiently create a castle and a surrounding market, while the warfare part of the game will test your castle-building skills as waves of invaders attempt to storm your fortress. Head over to the site now for much more information on Stronghold, including a demo version for the PC crowd. The Mac version of the game is set to be published by MacSoft, though no official release date has yet been announced; the PC game is due by December.
