The Future of Stronghold

Today we have two huge announcements to make! First things first, we are proud to announce that Stronghold Kingdoms will be coming to iPad and iPhone! Featuring the full game in playable form, a customised interface with new touchscreen controls and of course cross platform play with the millions of existing Kingdoms players, Stronghold Kingdoms iOS will be one of a kind on the App Store.

Our second announcement is admittedly more of a future teaser for our fans on PC. We wanted to have something for everyone in terms of news at this year’s Gamescom, so we included a little something around the one minute mark of our reveal trailer. Find out what the future holds for Stronghold on mobile and PC…

Firefly @ Gamescom 2015

In just under two weeks’ times Europe’s largest gaming convention will open its doors to literally hundreds of thousands of gamers and developers in sunny Cologne Germany. Gamescom has always been very important to us as a platform for making exciting new announcements, meeting with players and demoing our games. We have had many questions coming in about whether we’ll be at the show, what we’re bringing and whether you’ll see or hear anything new from us.

The good news is that Firefly *will* indeed be making an announcement on the first day of the show! Given our attendance record at Gamescom in recent years this may not come as much of a surprise, but we do have big news and hopefully something for everyone that follows Firefly and our games. The only bad news is that we won’t have a booth in the public area for you to swing by and say hello, as we had last year. That said we do have a very special surprise prepared for everyone, so keep an eye on our websites and social media pages for updates between the 5th and 7th of August if you don’t want to miss out on our exciting news!

P.S. If you do happen to see our Senior Producer Paul or Marketing Manager Nick in their black Firefly shirts then please do say hello! They may even let you in on our secret announcement before everyone else…

New Firefly Website

Fireflyworlds.com is dead… Long live the new Fireflyworlds! We are pleased to present the new official Firefly Studios website.

Designed to make it as easy as possible for players, press and anyone interested in our company to get technical support, press assets, review code and information on our latest endeavors, the new website has been created with all devices in mind. Desktop PCs, laptops, tablets, mobile phones and almost anything else you can use to surf the web in 2015 (apart from smart watches… At least for now) are all supported, with a dynamic theme that will magically shape-shift depending on the device you’re browsing from.

Are you for some reason in search of an old newsletter, FAQ, mini-game or wallpaper? Fear not! In our benevolence we have made sure that the old Firefly Studios website is still available for your viewing pleasure. Feel free to visit ye olde Fireflyworlds for information on our older games and to browse the forum for threads of the past. While we may eventually add information on our legacy titles to the new Firefly site, we will likely do so only when relevant updates (such as multiplayer solutions for ex-GameSpy games) have been developed and released. We will of course continue to support both the official Stronghold Kingdoms and Stronghold Crusader 2 websites.

We hope you like the new website! Be sure to check back for the latest news on new updates and games from Firefly.

‘Stronghold x Space Colony’ Crossover DLC Coming Soon

In celebration of the Space Colony: Steam Edition launch on April 30th and Stronghold’s upcoming 14.5th anniversary, we are releasing new DLC for Stronghold that fuses the game’s medieval universe with the quirky sci-fi of Space Colony. Since the launch of the original Space Colony in 2003 players have requested various combinations of Stronghold gameplay and the setting or characters of Space Colony. After much consideration we felt a crossover DLC, more than fourteen years after the original release of Stronghold, would be a great way to stay true to both games while also making the fusion possible.
