Patch Announced for Stronghold 3 with New Multiplayer Mode & Upgradable Keeps

A new patch is being released on May 11th by Firefly Studios for Stronghold 3, containing major gameplay tweaks and a new multiplayer mode: Coronation.  Here's a rundown what we can expect:

  • Coronation Mode:
    • Players will race to become the King of Kings.
    • Players start off at the lowly rank of “Village Idiot” with limited access to buildings and military units.
    • By generating honour players can move up the ranks, gaining new technology and weaponry along the way.
    • For the first time in a Stronghold game Coronation mode also features upgradable keeps, which have their own defences and provide additional housing for workers and troops.
    • The first King to achieve the rank of “Emperor” will win the game and can rightly claim to be the ultimate Stronghold Lord.
  • Peasants move 66% faster
  • Immigrations rates increased
  • Farms produce 25% more food
  • Bread production has been increased by 40%
  • Pikemen walk faster
  • Macemen, Armed Peasants, and Monks always run by default
  • Ranged units will gain an attack bonus based on terrain height, making it even easier to lure enemies into traps and set up killing zones!
  • Goods can be manually bought or sold without need for a Market
  • Market now allows players to set up automatic trading of goods, with controls and settings per goods type

Stronghold 3 allows players to reenact some of history's most renowned sieges and battles.  Featuring a realistic physics engine and cutting-edge graphics, players can either defend or siege in a range of multiplayer modes or play two intricate single-player campaigns.
