Out Now – Stronghold Kingdoms iOS

The new mobile version of Stronghold Kingdoms is finally available on the iOS App Store and will be coming Google Play on August 31st. This is both Firefly Studios’ first mobile release and the first ever Stronghold game to come to mobile, making it a massive milestone for us! Stronghold Kingdoms is completely free to play and includes all main gameplay features of the game on PC and Mac. Kingdoms on mobile is the full game with new touch controls and cross-platform play between iOS, PC, Mac and Android once that version is made available.

While new mobile players will have to register for a full Kingdoms account in-game after downloading the app, existing players can simply download and log in using their registered email and password. With the full game playable on mobile, players can switch between each version of the game at will! Whether you join forces with your mobile brethren or go head-to-head in a clash of the platforms is up to you. Either way you can now access your castle from work, school, home and even while you’re on vacation. Our first mobile release is a huge achievement for Firefly and we can’t wait to hear what you think of it!

Following the release of Stronghold Kingdoms on Android in two weeks’ time players can expect updates for all versions of the game. While certain mobile improvements may make their way into the PC game we also have major features, new game worlds and a wealth of quality of life improvements planned for veteran Kingdoms players.
