Stronghold Next for PC is a real-time economic strategy taking place during medieval times. The game was developed by FireFly, the authors of all previous installments of the series.

Plot

Stronghold Next takes us to medieval times, and gives us a fief to care for and control. We begin with a poor village and a small castle, while our objective is to use these meager means to build a powerful country.

Mechanics

The game doesn’t deviate from the genre standards, and the gameplay mechanisms were left without major changes. As always, the gameplay focuses on building and expanding new settlements, building bigger and bigger fortresses, and laying sieges to other lords’ dominions. The game mainly focuses on economic and constructions aspects. Castles can be designed at will and constructed from a number of ready-made elements.

Village management also gives us a number of options. We can construct houses, sawmills, markets, farms, etc. i.e. structures that will give our subjects work, food, and money. Of course, the battles are still here – a large emphasis was placed on various siege techniques.

Game Modes

Stronghold Next offers a singleplayer campaign, single historic missions and a sandbox mode, allowing the player to build castles without being constricted with any objectives. Aside from that, authors prepared a multiplayer mode.
