7sixty Launches Stronghold 3
IT’S TIME TO GET MEDIEVAL AS 7sixty AND FIREFLY STUDIOS LAUNCH STRONGHOLD 3™
Acclaimed Castle Building Series Makes its Long-Awaited Return
GRAPEVINE, TX – October 25th, 2011 – 7sixty and Firefly Studios are delighted to announce that Stronghold 3™, the eagerly-awaited latest installment in the premier castle-building series is available across the globe today in stores and from digital retailers.
Stronghold 3 is the true sequel to the much-loved original, which sees the return of the franchise’s most notorious enemy: The Wolf. After seemingly falling to his demise following defeat by The Boy, he has cheated death and is back for revenge, along with some of his old supporters and new, more dangerous, allies. The game also includes refined graphics, dramatic night time sieges and a new physics engine that ensures every single catapult blow packs a real punch.
“We’re pleased fans can finally take to the battlefield to try and stop The Wolf from dominating the kingdom,” said Simon Bradbury, lead designer, Firefly Studios. “Stronghold 3 is a leap forward for the series and we’ve worked very hard to refine the core Stronghold mechanics as well as adding lots of exciting new features.”
“Stronghold 3 is a huge milestone for 7sixty because it’s our first release and we’re confident it will go on to great success,” said Jeff Hutchinson, VP interactive entertainment, 7sixty. “Firefly Studios has done an amazing job in bringing the medieval period to life... you can almost smell the cow dung and flaggons of ale while playing!”
