Stronghold Warlords Demo

Recommended Posts

Just wondering which of you guys have played the Stronghold Warlords Demo yet and what you thought of it? I've had it downloaded for a while but only just got a chance to have a look at it.

I have to say, Firefly have really impressed me with how they've managed to put everything together. There's a lot of depth to the game, and it's really stable, especially considering it's just a beta/demo version. They've combined all of the best parts from both Stronghold 3 and Crusader 2 and really built on things.

Got a few screenies attached for you all :classic_smile:

This is very interesting! I've been busy these days, and unfortunately it's going to be like this until Friday at least. It appears I missed it (or forgot) how can we get Stronghold Warlords Demo to try it? If it is available for everyone, maybe I should download it quick, maybe it won't be available for download in August, who knows. :D

From what I've seen on many videos and pictures, including your pictures right now, it's great, but I would like to see what would be the feeling of playing this game. :)

I don't think you can download it anymore now sadly, I think it was only available for a limited time. You could contact Firefly though and ask for a beta code, Nick gave me one a while back, though granted that's because I couldn't get the demo working on my new machine.

It's only a single mission to play in the demo, but by am I impressed with the work and background that's gone into it. I'm particularly interested in the concept of Peace Consulates, because it allows you (in theory) to peacefully annexe an estate instead of taking it by force. It also seems that while in previous versions of Stronghold you could just walk straight up to a neutral estate and claim it, you now need to fight off the Warlord and any army around the estate. I haven't tried using Peace Consulates yet because I'm still not quite sure how they work, but I might go back into the demo and try it again.

    • Old Stronghold Knights

      I was recently playing Stronghold Crusader 2 after upgrading my hardware and it has made me want to play stronghold crusader even more. Which reminded me of stronghold knights and a lot of their old stronghold content from Stronghold to Stronghold 2. I was wondering if anyone either had any copies of the many skirmish maps for crusader that were once part of SHK before its downfall.  This is a real shot in the dark but i was wanting to use the maps for old nostalgia as well as to store them

      As some of you may know, there are two versions of Stronghold 2: the Standard edition and the Deluxe edition. The standard edition patches to version 1.4.1, however, the Deluxe edition patches to version 1.31; and it requires a special Deluxe patch. The good news is that this patch was included on the DVD disc itself of late releases of this game (I have a late release which includes a 1.31 patch right on the disc; alternatively, the patch can also be downloaded here: https://www.patches-scrolls
