MacSoft today announced that Stronghold for the Mac has gone gold and will begin shipping to stores May 21.

  • Robust, full-featured map and scenario editor

  • Enthralling multi-player game play for up to 8 players via LAN or over the Internet

  • Four separate game modes: economic (non-combat) campaign; siege famous historical castles; test castle building prowess in the "Siege That" challenge mode; and freebuild mode to peacefully design your ideal castle

The final system requirements are as follows:
