Since first launching in 2001, the Stronghold series has become one of the most respected games in its genre thanks to its mix of precision city-building, fast-paced real-time gameplay, and dramatic sieges with hundreds of enemies swarming over your castle. Stronghold 3: The Campaigns will bring the same addicting level of excitement and in-depth gameplay from the beloved PC series to the ultimate portable platform with solid military and economic campaigns, excellent building destruction physics, and night and day cycles.

“The Stronghold franchise has endured with the fans of the series for many reasons,” said Melanie Mroz, VP of Business Development, Digital Tribe Games. “The unique hybrid of city-building and management with real time strategy gameplay has garnered a strong fan base and we are thrilled to get iPad users in on the action.”

Stronghold 3: The Campaigns is a unique cross between a city builder and real-time strategy game (RTS). The key to the game is the castle – designing, managing, and defending it. Each of these elements is crucial and players will need to consider all of these components to become a true ruler. Since its original launch in 2001, the Stronghold series has sold more than 3 million copies, making it one of the most popular games in its genre.

  • Design and build mighty castles from which to launch campaigns
