OUT NOW – STRONGHOLD KINGDOMS ANDROID

We are proud to have finally released Stronghold Kingdoms on Google Play! As promised the Android version of Kingdoms arrives more or less alongside iOS, with a two week gap between releases providing 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. From today can go head-to-head or join forces with other players on iOS, PC and Mac, with the ability to log in using your existing account. Compatible with Android 5.0 (Lollipop) or later, Stronghold Kingdoms on Android is the full game on mobile with new touch controls and full cross-platform play.

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, specifically 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. So 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 coming in the near future!

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.
