Take these pests to the pound and win mighty prizes in our new Tourney, Dog Catcher!

Sire, the land is overrun with ferocious wolves! They frighten our peasants, chomp on our scouts, and terrorise the lands. If we’re not careful our people will leave our Kingdom, my liege, or worse, they’ll stop working! We must deal with these pesky wolves immediately, Sire!

Destroy as many wolf lairs as you can, and put yourself to the test in this new tourney in order win fabulous prizes! Good luck!

Tourney Details

Tourney Name: Dog Catcher
Tourney Objective:  Most Wolf Lairs Destroyed
Tourney Dates/Times: March 17th @ 10am UTC – March 24th 10am UTC
Minimum Prize Requirement (Bronze Commoner): 4 Wolf Lairs

What is a Tourney?
Tourneys are limited-time contests in which players across all game worlds (not including special worlds such as Rise of the Wolf) compete in various in-game PvE activities for fame and in-game loot. Each Tourney is focussed on a different area of gameplay, so there’s a Tourney for everyone whether you’re a farmer, trader, diplomat or warlord!

I’m just a Bumpkin… How can I compete with a Prince?
You won’t have to! To guarantee everyone a fair chance at earning prizes, players are divided into three separate leaderboards during each Tourney. Your leaderboard is dictated by player rank, with prizes scaling as you rank up and advance to new leaderboards. If you rank up across one of the following boundaries during a Tourney your score will be transferred to the new leaderboard:

  • Commoners (Rank 11 and Under)
  • Gentry (Ranks 12 to 17)
  • Nobility (Rank 18 and Above)

How do I enter a Tourney?
That’s the easiest part of all! There is no button to press, invitation to accept or Gods to appease, as you simply log in and play Stronghold Kingdoms as normal. Once you take an action related to the current Tourney (e.g. Kill attacking troops in ‘Come Get Some!’) you are automatically entered into that Tourney and added to the leaderboard.

Can I compete in Tourneys on the go?
Fantastic question, Sire. As you may have heard Stronghold Kingdoms is now available on both and Android and iOS, letting you rise through the ranks wherever you are!

As is now YouTube tradition, Firefly Studios starts the year by looking at the months of productive game dev ahead for our two upcoming games: Stronghold: Warlords & Romans: Age of Caesar!

Join Nick in our newest video as he takes you through all the exciting plans we have for both our East Asian castle sim and Roman co-op city builder by clicking on the image below:

Wishlist Warlords – https://store.steampowered.com/app/907650/Stronghold_Warlords

After an intense 2019, Stronghold: Warlords is on track to be one of the best Stronghold titles yet. Armed with the classic RTS-sim gameplay of its predecessors, the Firefly Dev team have spent the last few months implementing brand new mechanics, upping the animations and of course – making sure besieging feels as good as ever. Now we have our first foot planted firmly in 2020, we plan on continuing forward, squashing bugs and adding new features – with video deep dives to accompany them.

Whilst granaries are set alight from gunpowder experiments and Mongols harass local farmers, half way across the world Rome is being rebuilt. Firefly’s other half are also waist high in game dev as Romans: Age of Caesar is designed and built as the first ever online cooperative city builder. With its Alpha 2 well under way, we are nearly ready to showcase the first ever gameplay trailer for Romans, so make sure you’ve hit that subscribe button with notifications on to be the first to see it!

It is a pity that we are running out of goods to supply our villagers, my liege. A pity for our neighbours, that is. Let us pillage our enemies, ransack their castles and take their goods for our own. Make your armies ready, and let us begin!

Tourney Details

Start: 8th October @ 10am UTC

What is a Tourney?

Tourneys are limited-time contests in which players across all game worlds (not including special worlds such as Rise of the Wolf) compete in various in-game PvE activities for fame and in-game loot. Each Tourney is focused on a different area of gameplay, so there’s a Tourney for everyone whether you’re a farmer, trader, diplomat or warlord!

I’m just a Bumpkin… How can I compete with a Prince?

You won’t have to! To guarantee everyone a fair chance at earning prizes, players are divided into three separate leaderboards during each Tourney. Your leaderboard is dictated by player rank, with prizes scaling as you rank up and advance to new leaderboards. If you rank up across one of the following boundaries during a Tourney your score will be transferred to the new leaderboard:

  • Commoners (Rank 11 and Under)
  • Gentry (Ranks 12 to 17)
  • Nobility (Rank 18 and Above)

How do I enter a Tourney?

That’s the easiest part of all! There is no button to press, invitation to accept or Gods to appease, as you simply log in and play Stronghold Kingdoms as normal. Once you take an action related to the current Tourney (e.g. Kill attacking troops in ‘Come Get Some!’) you are automatically entered into that Tourney and added to the leaderboard.

Firefly Studios are immensely proud to reveal our newest title, Stronghold: Warlords.

Besiege Great Khans, Imperial warlords and Shōgun commanders in Stronghold: Warlords, the latest in Firefly’s classic ‘castle sim’ series. Command AI warlords across the battlefield as you build a castle economy and new gunpowder-fuelled siege engines!

For the first time ever Stronghold: Warlords allows you to recruit, upgrade and command AI lords across the battlefield in the form of in-game ‘Warlords’. Each warlord under your command boosts your strategic prowess with unique perks, characteristics and upgradeable abilities. Put them to work for your industry, fortifying borders, forging weapons or team up for a pincer attack! Each campaign mission, skirmish game and multiplayer battle means a fresh set of warlords to command and new strategic depth to discover.

The next chapter in Firefly Studios’ real-time strategy series, Stronghold: Warlords is Firefly’s first game to recreate the castle economies of the Far East. In Warlords you take command of Mongol hordes, imperial warriors and samurai clansmen as you lay siege to Japanese castles and fortified Chinese cities. Besiege historical warlords using new gunpowder-fuelled siege weapons, classic units and a completely new way to play Stronghold.

CONQUER AND COMMAND WARLORDS across the battlefield unlocking more powerful castles, armies and abilities.

RECRUIT NEW UNITS including imperial fire lancers, disciplined samurai, Mongolian bowmen and auxiliary laddermen.

RELIVE HISTORICAL CAMPAIGNS from 3rd century BC China through to the rise of the Shogunate and coming of the Mongol Empire.

RAZE YOUR ENEMIES with the arrival of gunpowder and new siege equipment such as the fire lance, siege tower and flaming ox!

BECOME THE GREATEST LORD through fear or admiration using a range of medieval entertainment, taxation and torture.

Gather food from the surrounding parishes and let your peasants feast on more than they could ever stomach. The Lord with the highest number of food packets foraged shall be heralded the winner of this Tourney, and a glorious prize bestowed upon them!

What is a Tourney?

Tourneys are limited-time contests in which players across all game worlds (not including special worlds such as Rise of the Wolf) compete in various in-game PvE activities for fame and in-game loot. Each Tourney is focussed on a different area of gameplay, so there’s a Tourney for everyone whether you’re a farmer, trader, diplomat or warlord!

I’m just a Bumpkin… How can I compete with a Prince?
You won’t have to! To guarantee everyone a fair chance at earning prizes, players are divided into three separate leaderboards during each Tourney. Your leaderboard is dictated by player rank, with prizes scaling as you rank up and advance to new leaderboards. If you rank up across one of the following boundaries during a Tourney your score will be transferred to the new leaderboard:

  • Commoners (Rank 11 and Under)
  • Gentry (Ranks 12 to 17)
  • Nobility (Rank 18 and Above)

How do I enter a Tourney?
That’s the easiest part of all! There is no button to press, invitation to accept or Gods to appease, as you simply log in and play Stronghold Kingdoms as normal. Once you take an action related to the current Tourney (e.g. Kill attacking troops in ‘Come Get Some!’) you are automatically entered into that Tourney and added to the leaderboard.

New Tourney

back to news

April 9, 2019

Break open the treasury and plunder the stockpile as you donate resources and claim exclusive prizes in our latest Tourney!

Sire, it is time to open both your heart and your purse. The Kingdom is in dire straits and it falls to you to replenish the royal bank by donating whatever resources available to our struggling capitals. The King has promised we shall be rewarded for our generosity soon after April 16, when the spoils from his latest crusade return home to be distributed among the nobility. Our grace only asks that we give what we can now, assured that we shall be rewarded for our donations later!

 

Tourney Details
Name: Charity Drive
Objective: Donate the most packets of goods to Capitals before the Tourney ends
Start: April 9 @ 10 am UTC
End: April 16 @ 10 am UTC
Min Prize Requirement: 1000 Packets Donated

Please Note: Your ‘Charity Drive’ Tourney score is determined by the number of packets donated. The amount of goods per package varies with the type of goods, e.g. 1000 wood equal 1 packet or wood, 200 iron equal 1 packet of iron. You can find a detailed list of packet sizes in our official Wiki.

 

What is a Tourney?
Tourneys are limited-time contests in which players across all game worlds (not including special worlds such as Rise of the Wolf) compete in various in-game PvE activities for fame and in-game loot. Each Tourney is focussed on a different area of gameplay, so there’s a Tourney for everyone whether you’re a farmer, trader, diplomat or warlord!

 

I’m just a Bumpkin… How can I compete with a Prince?
You won’t have to! To guarantee everyone a fair chance at earning prizes, players are divided into three separate leaderboards during each Tourney. Your leaderboard is dictated by player rank, with prizes scaling as you rank up and advance to new leaderboards. If you rank up across one of the following boundaries during a Tourney your score will be transferred to the new leaderboard:

  • Commoners (Rank 11 and Under)
  • Gentry (Ranks 12 to 17)
  • Nobility (Rank 18 and Above)

 

How do I enter a Tourney?
That’s the easiest part of all! There is no button to press, invitation to accept or Gods to appease, as you simply log in and play Stronghold Kingdoms as normal. Once you take an action related to the current Tourney (e.g. Kill attacking troops in ‘Come Get Some!’) you are automatically entered into that Tourney and added to the leaderboard.

Firefly’s New MMO

back to news

February 15, 2019

We have just announced Romans: Age of Caesar, a co-operative strategy MMO and spiritual successor to Stronghold Kingdoms! Pre-registration for the game’s first closed Alpha is now open, with our announcement trailer revealing Romans to prospective governors worldwide.

Building on the unique MMO design of Stronghold Kingdoms, Romans is an online co-op city builder with thousands of players working together to rebuild Rome. The result is a shared world builder that returns to the classic Roman setting designer Simon Bradbury and producer Eric Ouellette made their name with before founding Firefly Studios in 1999.

In Romans players must rebuild the empire as they share resources, re-establish trade routes and protect their cities from barbarian invasion. Experience classic city builder gameplay online across on an entire continent as you build, trade and fight together with 15 other players in each city. Revive the republic and restore the Roman Empire to its former glory!

Planned for both PC and mobile with full cross-platform play, Romans: Age of Caesar is scheduled to release later this year.

Log in daily to win Card Packs in the Kingdoms Advent Calendar or scout your favourite world for festive presents!

You’ve been a naughty Lord? Don’t worry, even YOU receive Christmas treasures as winter arrives in 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.

Advent Calendar
Chocolate is for bumpkins; real Knights receive strategy cards in their advent calendar! 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 are those colourful packages sprinkled across the snowy landscape? Sire, they are presents! Be the first to uncover these festive resource stashes and with a little luck you could find a Wheel Spin inside. After a present has been opened, the stash will revert to its original form, be it wood, spices, ale or any other resource. 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!

Gameplay Update

back to news

October 31, 2018

Compete with fellow Lords, climb new leaderboards and reap mighty rewards in our latest gameplay update!

Jump into your favourite game world and begin your ascent in Stronghold Kingdoms’ first ever ‘Tourney’ time-limited event! Not sure what to do? Watch the new video where Nick demonstrates exactly how tournaments work:

What is a ‘Tourney’?
Tourneys are limited-time contests in which players across all game worlds (not including special worlds such as Rise of the Wolf) compete in various in-game PvE activities for fame and in-game loot. Starting with ‘Canine Control’ each Tourney will cover a unique aspect of gameplay, making each facet of Stronghold Kingdoms even more rewarding!

I’m just a Bumpkin… How can I compete with a Prince?
You won’t have to! To give all players a fair chance at earning rewards each Tourney is divided into three leaderboards, the one you compete in dictated by your player rank. If you rank up across one of these boundaries during the course of a Tourney your score will be transferred to the new leaderboard:

  • Commoners (Rank 11 and Under)
  • Gentry (Ranks 12 to 17)
  • Nobility (Rank 18 and Above)

How do I enter a Tourney?
That’s the easiest part of all! There is no button to press, invitation to accept or Gods to appease, simply log in and play Stronghold Kingdoms as normal. Once you take an action related to the current Tourney (e.g. Kill a wolf during ‘Canine Control’) you are automatically entered into the Tourney and added to the leaderboard.

Right. Now what about those prizes?
In each leaderboard players compete for one of three prize bands. The first two bands are based on a player’s position on the leaderboards at the end of a Tourney, with the third awarded to all players who fulfill a minimum requirement (e.g. Kill at least 500 wolves in ‘Canine Control’).

So I can win without finishing at the top of my leaderboard?
Yes! While the top players will be rewarded for their extraordinary achievements, *everyone* has the chance to earn mighty prizes by simply playing the game. The minimum requirements for the third prize band are also adjusted to each leaderboard’s ranks, making it easy for all players to score big at the end of a Tourney.

Fantastic! What can I win?
For ‘Canine Control’ prizes will include Card Packs, Premium Tokens, Wheel Spins, Faith Points, Gold and powerful individual cards. Future Tourneys may have completely different prizes to win.

How will I know a Tourney has begun?
Tourneys will take place on a regular basis, simultaneously across all normal type worlds. You will see the Tourney icon appear in the lower left corner of the world map screen to signal the start of a new contest.

Any advice on how to win?
As with quests the secret to success is exploring and mastering all the aspects of gameplay in Stronghold Kingdoms. Learn to effectively kill AI enemies, become a prolific scout and research all the economic paths required for a flourishing Kingdom.

Can I compete in Tourneys on the go?
Fantastic question, Sire. As you may have heard Stronghold Kingdoms is now available on both and Android and iOS, letting you rise through the ranks wherever you are!

Where can I find out more?
Check out our official Stronghold Kingdoms Wiki for detailed information on the Tourney system, the leaderboards and how to collect your prizes once a Tourney has come to an end.

To give us feedback on today’s update please head over to the official Stronghold Kingdoms Forums. Let us know what you like about this new gameplay addition and what you would love to see in our next update!

October 24, 2018

Our long awaited gameplay update arrives next week offering new challenges, leaderboards and in-game loot. Compete in our first ‘Tourney’ on October 31st!

The more eagle-eyed players may have noticed a new golden laurel wreath icon at the top of the Stronghold Kingdoms UI… We are excited to reveal this is for our new ‘Tourney’ system! This new gameplay update will allow players to compete in a series of medieval tournaments for special prizes and bragging rights on all-new leaderboards. Starting with the first tourney scheduled for 3pm (Game Time) on October 31st, players will regularly compete in a wide range of contests changing as often as every few weeks.

Medieval ‘Tourneys’ will soon take place across all game worlds as limited-time events, with various PvE challenges designed to test players’ mastery over different areas of the game. New leaderboards and tiers also offer those at different skill levels unique challenges and loot based on their rank. Tournament objectives will eventually cover all areas of Stronghold Kingdoms gameplay including economy, trade, military, exploration and religion. Which skill will be YOUR ticket to eternal fame and glory?

To find out more about the Tournaments update please visit the new ‘Tourney’ page on the official Stronghold Kingdoms Wiki.

Move your village hall, mark players with new diplomacy icons, communicate with 60 players at once and more in today’s community-driven update for PC!

We’ve listened intently to the Stronghold Kingdoms community – and today’s update is our answer! Based on your suggestions, this update contains the most-requested features brought forward by players.

Village hall – Adding a new layer of economic village planning and giving you full freedom of village design, the village hall can now be placed wherever you fancy! By activating a Premium-Token, the village hall can be moved around the village like any other building. But remember: moving the village hall can affect various production values and bonuses!

Diplomacy icons – Diplomacy is a nuanced endeavour that requires wits, knowledge and your full attention. We can’t help you with the wits, but we’ve made it easier than ever to keep track of your diplomatic relations to fellow players. By introducing four new icons (green face, red face, pink jester’s hat, and a yellow ‘?’) to be displayed next to player villages on the world map, you can now quickly identify where your favourite – or not so favourite – players are gathered.

Mail thread limit – You want to thank all your allies for their support, but you’ve made more than 40 friends? No need to worry, you can now include up to 60 players in the same mail thread! Whether you’re coordinating meticulously planned attacks with allies or trying to summon the wrath of 60 new enemies upon your castle, you can do it all in one message.

For a full list of the new community-requested features, check out our official update notes.

If you have suggestions and requests of your own, please share them in the official Stronghold Kingdoms Forum!

We regularly screen the forums for new ideas, tweaks and inspirations from the community. Without you, this update would not have been possible. Thank you for your continued support!
