Stronghold Warlords Patch Notes – Sep 1, 2021


  • Added Kublai Khan AI Lord
  • Added 3 new Skirmish maps:
    – Kings and Mountains – Any king may rule from the safety of their throne. Will you be bold enough to venture forth and hold dominion over your enemies?
    – Distributary – Open grounds are separated by three river crossings. Each player will need to manage large sections of walls to defend their space, while being wary of attacks from two fronts.
    – Entrenched – Land and resources are plentiful for each player, but the map position can be key. Battle from the high ground on two fronts or stay grounded and defend one side. The choice is yours.
  • Horse Archers now speak Mongolian.
    – Note: This only happens with the game set to English. All other languages use localised voicelines.

  • Fix for Clothes as Starting Goods being set incorrectly in custom maps
  • Stopped Custom Missions having different starting goods based on previously selected difficulty in campaign missions
  • Stopped Traps and Castle defences from being placeable on tiles with walls

  • Optimizations to how grass and fire particles are handled
  • Optimizations for pathfinding through tunnels
  • Optimization for town builds/path regeneration
