GRAPEVINE, TX – August 4th - Ever wondered how to build a mighty castle? What about charting the precise physics of ensuring a stone wall gets smashed to bits by trebuchet fire? Perhaps you’ve consider the exact angle a cow needs to be launched skywards from a catapult to crash back to Earth with a satisfying splat. Well, all these questions and more will be answered in a series of developer diaries for upcoming castle builder Stronghold 3™ .

7sixty and Firefly Studios are pleased to announce that for the first time, fans of the Stronghold series and newcomers keen to learn the thrills of medieval life will get behind the scenes access to the best-selling franchise. The developer diaries detail some of the major improvements in Stronghold 3, including the refined castle building system, the dramatic physics, thrilling night time sieges and lots more.

“There are too many exciting new features in Stronghold 3 to be contained within just one developer diary,” said Simon Bradbury, lead designer, “so we’ve decided to create a series of videos featuring interviews with the team from Firefly Studios and lots of gameplay footage that should satisfy the cravings of the fans and give unprecedented access to the development of the game.”
