Stronghold Kingdoms Overview
Stronghold Kingdoms is a standalone, free-to-play medieval developed by Firefly Studios, acting as an MMO version of their popular and commercially successful Stronghold series of RTS games. To play, a quick download and install is required, but is rather small in size compared to modern games, standing around 10MB as a final download.
The game begins with a single village under advisement by the game’s tutorial character, leading into a relatively short tutorial that shows some basics of the game but allows players to take the reins relatively quickly in comparison to many RTS game introductions.
Similar to The Settlers Online: Castle Empire, the game focuses heavily on resource management, making its resource pipeline in-depth and rewarding to master. The game also offers many ways to interact with other players, including parishes that can levy taxes and offer benefits to your villages, resource trading, scouting, multi-language chatrooms, ransacking, and in-depth ranking systems.
