Town defenders improved the earliest simple walls by fortifying them. This involved both strengthening in terms of thickness and construction techniques, and adding protected fighting positions for defenders. Shielded platforms at the top allowed defenders to shoot and fight off climbing attackers. Bastions at corners allowed defenders to bring interlocking fire onto enemies at a wall side from three directions.

  • When the player saves the game after researching Fortified Wall, upon loading that game, the wall upon selecting is viewed as "Stone Wall" despite the fact that the Wall retains the Fortified Wall appearance and upgrade.
