The Fortified Palisade Wall is an unconstructable wall in Age of Empires II HD: The Forgotten. It is essentially a Palisade Wall with double hit points. Unlike with Palisade Walls, however, Fortified Palisade Walls have no matching Gate. In the Definitive Edition, Fortified Palisade Walls appear pre-deployed in the Hill Fort random map. They are also available in the Scenario Editor.

  • In the Forgotten Empires mod, the Fortified Palisade Wall was an upgrade of the Palisade Wall. According to Cysion, the reason it was cut was because there was no good way to implement it without making the game too defensive. If it was available in the Dark Age or as a cheap Feudal Age technology, it would make the early game too defensive, but if it were an expensive Feudal Age technology or made available later, it would be useless due to the stronger units available by then.[1]
  • The cut technology Revetments upgraded Palisade Walls into Fortified Palisade Walls, and doubled the hit points of Palisade Gates.
