We return this week for one final pre-Christmas update, Aaron coming back for our final instalment of ‘History Behind Warlords‘! A series of deep dive videos on the historical events leading into the single player missions of Stronghold: Warlords, this week we turn our eye to the Land of the Rising Sun. So join Aaron, Oda Nobunaga and Toyotomi Hideyoshi for a historic overview and the beginnings of their campaign to unify a fractured land.
Learn about the chaotic period of Sengoku Jidai, the Japanese Warring States Period we’ll be recreating in-game in the later stages of Warlords’ main campaign. One of the most bloodthirsty and brutal periods of Japanese history, with every clan looking to overthrow their enemies while keeping a watchful eye on their allies, Hideyoshi’s exploits are perfect for exciting siege combat. A dramatic period in the later stages of Japanese history, Hideyoshi’s sieges and skirmishes are ideal for the point in Warlords’ main campaign when some of the most advanced siege weapons and tactics are introduced.
