Stronghold Legends is a real-time strategy (RTS) video game developed by Firefly Studies and published by 2k Games. It is the fourth Stronghold game and was first released on October 13, 2006. In this game, the player will take on the role of a Kingdom lord and his goal is to establish a strong military and stable economy in order to destroy enemy castles, defend against intruders and complete mission objectives. However, unlike the previous Stronghold games, the player has the option to choose from three starting Lords (i.e. Count Vlad Dracul, Siegfried of Xanten or King Arthur).
The game has three storylines, which follow the conquest of the three lords – King Arthur (Easy), Siegfried of Xanten (Medium) and Count Vladislav Dracul (Hard). Each of the storyline has its own equivalent difficulty. However, the difficulty can also be changed individually. Like previous Stronghold games, Legends has single player and multiplayer gameplays. The single player follows the quest of the three lords while the multiplayer gameplay enables the player to play either cooperatively or competitively.
Here are some of the additions and changes in the Stronghold Legends game:
• Map Editor
• Cooperative multiplayer mode
• Online game modes (King of the Hills, Deathmatch, Capture the Flag and Economic War)
• Creating creatures such as witches and dragons
• Ability to control mythical and human armies and more…
