Lock up the tigers again! Extinguish all fire arrows! Stronghold Warlords will no longer appear on January 26, 2021. The strategy game was postponed two weeks before its release. And not just for a few days. It now takes over a month longer before you can pull up your castle.
New release date: Warlords won’t be released until March 9, 2021.
Why has Warlords been postponed now?
On January 11, the FireFly development studio officially announced that they could not keep the originally planned date in good conscience. According to an official report, the problem lies with the multiplayer. Accordingly, the development team unexpectedly ran into a problem with the multiplayer mode, which they now need to fix.
“We want to be as transparent as possible with this matter and we thought about only postponing the multiplayer and submitting it with a later update. However, we promised you a working multiplayer for Stronghold: Warlords for over a year at the time of the release, the game now without releasing would not be fair to the players. “
The team apologizes for the delay in order to guarantee that all players will have an excellent gaming experience with Stronghold: Warlords upon release. Incidentally, this gaming experience in Warlords also includes the massive use of black powder. The gameplay trailer shows how this affects castles.

What is Warlords about?
Stronghold: Warlords will be the first part of the series that completely dispenses with European knights. No, there are no crusades to the Holy Land either. Instead, Warlords takes place entirely in Asia. What exactly sets Warlords apart from its predecessors, we found out from the Stronghold inventor himself at the announcement in 2019:

Hopefully this new part will appear completely bug-free after the postponement. In the past, the successors of the legendary Stronghold often suffered from sometimes horrific mistakes. Maybe warlords could avoid this trap.
