Firefly Studios announced today that the popular PC-based series "Stronghold" will be introducing a new MMOG based on the same series as what is called "the first castle-based MMO". Stronghold Kingdoms is a medieval game that focuses on building a kingdom that thrives while protecting against sieges and pillaging from other kingdoms.
Whilst strong and well planned castles are at the heart of any lords domain, players can also specialise via a vast research tree. Starting out as a humble peasant, each promotion brings research points to spend on becoming the best in as many areas as you wish, trading, diplomacy, warfare, farming and more, as the player seeks to control the local parish, county and beyond. As their power grows, players can eventually join in a country wide war for the Crown.
Classic Stronghold goes online in a world where players can, Build, Besiege, Pillage, Farm, Explore, Research, Vote, Trade, Banquet, Fight and much, much more. Many unannounced and surprising game features will be revealed in the coming months
Due to be released in 2010, Stronghold Kingdoms brings a fun and familiar twist to the typical strategy type game! For more details you can check out the official site.
