Developer Firefly Studios has just released a brand new dev-diary that showcases the AI of the upcoming Stronghold: Warlords that reacts intelligently to the choices a player makes.
“Suffice to say, the AI no longer cheats” said Simon Bradbury, Lead Designer at Firefly Studios. “It no longer needs a helping hand to provide the fun gameplay that a Stronghold game must provide, allowing you to disrupt their economy and pin them down. We know we’ve done our job properly when a warlord coordinates a pincer movement and players sit back thinking ‘That’s what I would have done!’”
Stronghold: Warlords is Firefly’s first game to recreate the castle economies of the Far East, allowing you to command Mongol hordes, imperial warriors and samurai clansmen as you lay siege to Japanese castles and fortified Chinese cities. Stronghold: Warlords will be available for the PC on the 26th of January via Steam.
