"Stronghold Legends" is a castle-based real-time strategy game by Firefly Studios. It follows in the series of "Stronghold" and "Stronghold 2".

Unlike the previous "Stronghold" titles, "Legends" gives the player a choice of different starting rulers all with different troop types (including King Arthur and his knights of the round table, Count Vlad Dracul , and Siegfried of Germany). Other new features include the ability to play multi-player versus CPU controlled opponents, and the choice between different game play modes for online play (Death-match, King of the Hill, Economic War, and Capture the Flag). "Stronghold Legends" brings a new mythical element into the game.

pecial units

Special units are a new feature. Each faction has different unit groups unique to the faction. For instance, in King Arthur's faction, the player is given the opportunity to recruit Merlin, Sir Galahad, Sir Gawain, and many others of King Arthur's legend. Most special units have their own unique skill, which must be recharged after they are used. Dragons are available to every faction, but have a set lifetime. All other special units remain on the map until they die. In story mode, for example, King Arthur can make use of the Ice Tower instead of the Round Tower for more balanced gameplay.
