Pre-Order Stronghold at the IMG Store
1:08 PM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

The upcoming strategy game Stronghold from MacSoft is now available for pre-order at the IMG Web Store for $39. If you're a MacGames CD subscriber, can pre-order for just $34. Stronghold is scheduled to ship on May 21st!

Stronghold is a unique cross between city builders such as Caesar III or Sim City and a RTS in the tradition of Command & Conquer and Age of Empires. Set in medieval Europe, you'll establish settlements, build and manage castles and engage in siege warfare. The game incorporates much more building and "community managing" than a traditional RTS, yet allows for a more intense combat experience than city builders have featured in the past.

Set in Medieval Europe, Stronghold challenges your strategic building, resource management and RTS combat skills. Become the ruler of a virtual medieval world with each decision and policy they implement. Decide how to regulate taxes and rations, when to offer free ale or hold fairs, as well as many other policies that will have an impact on your citizenís lives. Work to build and protect your castle and ultimately mount an invasion to dominate the enemyís fortress. A campaign-style storyline develops through narrative and in-game interaction.

System Requirements:

  • G3/350MHz or faster processor (500Mhz or faster for on-line play)
  • Mac OS 8.6 or higher (Carbonized for OSX)
  • Rage 128 or better video card
  • 128MB RAM, and 750MB free hard disk space
