Island Warfare Now Live
Turn the oceans red by waging bloody war across 38 tropical islands with new, changing sea conditions. Players must fight for a single kingly throne avoiding rough seas and the occasional hurricane as they attack, scout and trade across a medieval archipelago. Conditions change daily with tail winds, rough seas and violent storms either slowing or accelerating the progress of attacks, trade ships and scouting parties as they move between islands. Attacking forces may catch a strong tailwind and obliterate their enemies in the blink of an eye. Traders can double their earnings in a single day by all casting off while conditions are favorable. Scouts on the other hand could be so heavily delayed by storms at sea that, upon returning home, find their actions have sparked a conflict that has destroyed their home!
Old strategies, routines and timed attacks will be rethought as players adjust to the changing pace of this new game world and fight for control of the high seas. Once a unit leaves its village and begins moving toward a target located on a different island, progress across the world map will determined entirely by the current sea conditions and any cards in play at the time. The new mechanics of Island Warfare represent the greatest shift in gameplay for Stronghold Kingdoms since entering beta. The first of many new updates in 2016, including a new events system and full mobile release on iOS and Android, Island Warfare kicks things off with the introduction of sea traversal as one of the top player requests.
