Stronghold 3 Patch Adds "Free-Build Panel"


Poor old Firefly are looking a bit beleaguered after the disappointing release of Stronghold 3, to the point where the top thread on their forums is titled "We are listening and we are working". Anyway, some of that listening and working seems to have gone into yesterday's patch, which has added a "free-build panel" to allow players to experiment with their fortifications a little more: "Although Stronghold 3 wasn't designed with a skirmish mode in mind," announced Simon Bradbury, lead designer, "we have listened to what the fans have been saying, so beefed up the Free Build mode to give players lots more flexibility and the ability to have increasingly powerful invasions attack their castle." Quite why it wasn't designed with what seems like the most obvious possible mode for a castle-building game is beyond me, but at least they're having a crack at it now, eh readers?
