Based on the fan-favourite Global Conflict world map and featuring the Era world rules, this third edition presents players of all skill levels with a new chance to assert their strength on a map of 151 real-world countries. Whether you choose to peacefully farm your way to riches, step out onto the political world stage as a diplomatic mastermind or take these thrones by force, there are no boundaries on Global Conflict 3.

A new Global Conflict Era world is opening this week for thousands of aspiring Lords and Ladies across all platforms! more...
Sire, what would you do if the world was yours for the taking? Would you rage war across the globe and slay your enemies without due process, or would you live the peaceful life as a farmer on some remote island? You have until December 7 to decide!
With a map of 151 real world countries, Global Conflict 3 is one of the largest and most expansive world maps in Stronghold Kingdoms. Players from PC, Mac, iOS and Android will unite, compete and fight together for the throne of their home countries on this global battlefield! Will you manage to fight your way to the top under the new Era World gameplay rules?
Get ready and plan out your strategy before the Global Conflict 3 launch on Thursday December 7th at 3 pm. You may also want to keep an eye out for the client and Facebook news for a chance to win mighty card packs in celebration of next week’s launch!
As the days become colder and night sets in early Lords and Ladies can finally rejoice, because Christmas has come to Stronghold Kingdoms! Dive into a winter wonderland, scour the earth for precious treasures and plunder the new Kingdoms Advent Calendar for Card Packs and Premium Tokens.
Who needs chocolate or an overpriced phone when you can bask in free strategy cards and the resulting screams of terror from neighboring villages! Log in daily for your chance to win a Stronghold Kingdoms Card Pack (including Super and Ultimate Random Packs!) or a 7-Day Premium Token.
Here’s how it works:
1. Log into Stronghold Kingdoms once a day.
2. Click on one of nine Advent Calendar doors.
3. Try a different door if you don’t win the first time.
4. Come back tomorrow and do the same!
Christmas Scout Stashes
What’s that laying in the beautiful snow? Sire, those are presents! Be the first to uncover these festive resource stashes and with a little luck you could find a Wheel Spin inside. After these presents have been opened the stash will revert to its original form be it Wood, Meat or Ale. So if you have no luck in the daily calendar, be sure to send out the Scouts before your neighbors do!
While the Advent Calendar will vanish on December 26th, both the snowy landscapes and special present resource stashes will remain until January 1st. Your chances of winning may depend on luck, but with two chances daily and a guaranteed prize on Christmas Day not a single farmer, trader or warlord should enter the new year empty handed!
Get up to 32 free cards per week with the new Veteran level rewards!
There’s two types of Lords in these Kingdoms: those who joyfully collect their free Veteran cards and those who’ve just logged in for the very first time. And because we know how much you love the free cards, we’ve decided to give you even more by increasing the number of free cards you can collect per week! In addition, mobile players can now custom design their UI for easier use on individual devices.
What do you have to do to get more cards? Rank up! This newest Stronghold Kingdoms update boosts the Veteran rewards for ALL levels, giving both new and experienced players more strategy cards on a daily basis. To climb up the Veteran card levels, all you have to do is play the game and achieve important milestones in every player’s journey. You’ve ranked up to a Yokel? You get a free card each day! You’ve ranked up to Squire? Then you will receive up to 32 free cards per week!
These are the updated rewards for each Veteran card level:
Level 1: 1 card per week —> 3 cards per week
Level 2: 2 cards per week —> 7 cards per week
Level 3: 3 cards per week —> 9 cards per week
Level 4: 4 cards per week —> 14 cards per week
Level 5: 5 cards per week —> 16 cards per week
Level 6: 6 cards per week —> 18 cards per week
Level 7: 7 cards per week —> 20 cards per week
Level 8: 8 cards per week —> 22 cards per week
Level 9: 10 cards per week —> 28 cards per week
Level 10: 14 cards per week —> 32 cards per week
This update also comes with several fixes and changes to the mobile version of Stronghold Kingdoms. To help new players find their way around their village more easily, a new information panel has been added to village buildings, giving quick insights into the basic game mechanics. Alongside improved controls for donating to capital buildings, we have given mobile players a more flexible and customisable interface. Your screen is small? No worries, you can now set the size of the user interface at your own desire. You want the world map to indicate whether a player is an ally or enemy? You can now mark them and never run the risk of moving into the wrong neighbourhood!
The complete mobile update notes are published in the official Stronghold Kingdoms Forum

We are proud to have finally released Kingdoms on Google Play! As promised the Android version arrives more or less alongside iOS, with a two week gap between releases to provide a little breathing room. This has allowed us to make sure each launch goes as smoothly as possible and we do appreciate your patience with this minor delay. This version of the game is compatible with devices running Android 5.0 (Lollipop) or later.
Making Of Video
Get an insider look at our recent ‘high-budget’ live-action mobile launch trailer, celebrating the release of Stronghold Kingdoms on mobile! One brave Firefly donned a 50kg suit of armour before taking to the streets of London to help promote the mobile launch on iOS and Android. Find out how we got it on in the first place, exactly where we embarrassed ourselves and just how many takes it took to produce the final product!
When downloading Kingdoms on Android you will notice that the app icon currently has a ‘Beta’ label across it. This is because we feel the Android build isn’t quite up to the same standard as iOS with regards to optimisation on select devices. The relatively few devices on iOS and our small team are a few reasons for this, but we also started Android development later. Development actually began after iOS was announced, as a direct response to requests from players asking for Android support. The Android love was clear from that moment on and we eventually decided it would be better to release a playable build alongside iOS than to delay the release a second time.
If you’d like to know more our ‘iOS vs Android’ video released at the start of this month should give you an idea of how each version plays at launch. While we are aware there is still some work to be done you can expect frequent updates to the app with your feedback in mind. We hope you enjoy Kingdoms on Android and look forward to new features and worlds in the near future!
Want to celebrate by winning free stuff? Here’s how to enter our launch giveaway:
Players who purchase Crowns before September 2nd will be awarded 30% extra as part of our Android launch Flash Sale! Simply select your payment method of choice, Crown packet and whether you want to send these as a gift.
This offer is now active and will last until the weekend, when the clocks in Stronghold Kingdoms strike midnight on Saturday morning. Buy before 00:00 GMT on September 2nd to claim your extra Crowns!
Watch the new launch trailer and help us celebrate the worldwide release of Stronghold Kingdoms on iOS by sharing the news on Facebook!
While the Android version of Stronghold Kingdoms arrives in two weeks’ time on August 31st, the game is NOW AVAILABLE on iPhone and iPad! From today you can play the full PC game on your iOS device of choice, with new touch controls and cross-play between mobile and desktop:
Existing players and new Lords can now take their castle anywhere and to celebrate we have a new trailer, launch sale and giveaway!
As you know on August 31st we will also be releasing Stronghold Kingdoms on Android! Available for both phones and tablets, the Android version of Kingdoms is scheduled for release on Thursday next week and with support for devices running Android 5.0 (Lollipop) and above. If you pre-registered for Kingdoms on Android you will also receive a Baron’s Beginner Bundle of in-game loot via email as soon as the game launches.
Want to see the Android version in action? Follow the link below!
Paul and Nick do battle in our latest video release! ‘iOS vs Android’ shows both platforms running side by side in real time, giving you a first look at gameplay from the Android version of the game as an added bonus. Situated in the same parish, our two developers come together in an attempt to build and besiege their way to glory in just 15 minutes.
Be sure to watch the video in its entirety for village building, castle construction, world map gameplay and a dramatic siege or two! It’s Samsung S6 versus iPhone 6 in this battle of the platforms, giving you an idea of what it’ll be like to play on phone or tablet come August 17th on iOS and August 31st on Android. Whether you’re playing on desktop, laptop, tablet or phone, Stronghold Kingdoms will allow you to challenge online rivals however you choose.
With all major game features present across each version of the game, Stronghold Kingdoms on mobile is designed as the full PC experience on your mobile device. It’s Stronghold Kingdoms in your pocket, so get ready to besiege from work, school and countless other places you probably shouldn’t be using your phone!
Stronghold Kingdoms comes to mobile next month with cross-play and brand new touch controls!
It gives us great pleasure to finally announce that the all-new mobile version of Stronghold Kingdoms will be coming to iOS on August 17th and Android shortly after on August 31st:

These new iOS and Android versions of the game will feature all major features from the desktop version, as well as new touch controls and cross-platform play between iOS, Android, PC and Mac.
As you know existing players will be able to download and play Stronghold Kingdoms using their current PC or Mac account, taking their castle on the go and laying siege to rivals from anywhere they choose. New players are invited to join the hundreds of thousands of Lords and Ladies already playing Stronghold Kingdoms on PC and Mac, joining forces or going head to head!
Anyone who pre-registers before launch will also receive a ‘Baron’s Beginner Bundle’ of in-game loot as soon as the game launches on their platform of choice.
