A New Expansion for Stronghold Kingdoms

Stronghold Kingdoms - news
Stronghold Kingdoms releases today the Rise of the Wolf expansion, which recreates the world of the original Stronghold in an MMO environment, introducing to the game classic Stronhold characters, new PvE gameplay and improved AI.

The idea with Rise of The Wolf is to invert the gameplay of Stronghold Kingdoms. We’re turning Kingdoms’ hardcore player-versus-player gameplay on its head and challenging people to work together, to defeat a common enemy”, said Simon Bradbury, Creative Director at Firefly Studios. “While you can still enjoy a more pure PvP experience on the regular game worlds, we developed Rise of The Wolf because it offers a new way to play our MMO for those who enjoy or indeed prefer PvE. I can’t wait to see what tactics players use to take down The Wolf, The Snake, The Pig and The Rat!”

After being assigned a starting location on a medieval map of the British Isles, players are forced to hold back an AI invasion from classic Stronghold characthers: The Wolf, The Snake, The Pig and The Rat. The Wolf has returned to take vengeance against the people of Britain, forcing players to take back villages by engaging enemy troops and winning votes in the political arena to gain control of vital land.

These new AI opponents have similar abilities to regular players, allowing them to raze and capture player villagers, vote for themselves in elections, repair castles or scout resources.
