Online Round Up 2 (ft. New Romans Alpha!)

This week Nick’s back with another Firefly Studios’ Online Round Up, featuring new updates from Romans: Age of Caesar and Stronghold Kingdoms. This episode takes you through the latest and greatest from our online titles as Alpha 2 comes to Romans bearing a multitude of online city building gifts, while Stronghold Kingdoms receives new tournaments and worlds. Among a range of improvements and optimisations made since Alpha 1, Romans is now equipped with an extended Empire Map, Forum relocation, multi-city capabilities, quest lines and Advisers. All this makes for new co-op grand strategy possibilities and a much easier to understand experience for new senators.

In addition to weekly tournaments occupying our resourceful Lords and Ladies, Stronghold Kingdoms gets a whole host of new worlds to begin fresh adventures with friends and foes alike. There have also been community requested changes as things get more competitive on Heretic worlds and we’re introducing brand new AI castle types to boot! If these updates sound like reason enough to get conquering in our online titles you can register for Alpha 2 using the link above or download Stronghold Kingdoms for free now on PC, Mac and mobile.

Tournaments Now Live

We are happy to announce that Stronghold Kingdom’s long-awaited Tournaments Update is now live across all game worlds! Following up on last month’s community-driven update, we’ve been building the new ‘Tourney’ system for some time now. It therefore gives us here at Firefly Studios great pleasure to finally launch the feature with our first ever tournament: ‘Canine Control’!

As Nick demonstrates in our latest video Tourneys are time-limited contests in which players compete across all game worlds to complete various PvE activities in search of glory and in-game loot. These activities cover pretty much all aspects of the game, making each facet of Stronghold Kingdoms even more rewarding. This new update is designed to combine the short-term dedication of quests with the world-wide competition of the popular Domination Worlds.

Stronghold Kingdoms: Tournaments

The more eagle-eyed Stronghold Kingdoms players may have noticed a new golden laurel wreath icon in the game… We are excited to reveal this is for our new ‘Tourney’ system! This new gameplay update will allow players to compete in a series of medieval tournaments for special prizes and bragging rights on all-new leaderboards. Starting with the first tourney scheduled for 3pm GMT on October 31st, players will regularly compete in a wide range of contests changing as often as every few weeks.

Medieval ‘Tourneys’ will soon take place across all game worlds as limited-time events, with various PvE challenges designed to test players’ mastery over different areas of the game. New leaderboards and tiers also offer those at different skill levels unique challenges and loot based on their rank. Tournament objectives will eventually cover all areas of Stronghold Kingdoms gameplay including economy, trade, military, exploration and religion.

To find out more about the Tournaments update please visit the new ‘Tourney’ page on the official Stronghold Kingdoms Wiki.
