Having you been waiting for a unique online strategy MMO that doesn’t revolve around ridiculously long building timers and item malls? Then Stronghold Kingdoms may just be the game for you. Based on the iconic Stronghold franchise from Firefly studios, Stronghold Kingdoms has roots that trace as far back as 1993, offering players a developed MMORTS experience with almost 20 years of detailed lore and background stories.
Stronghold Kingdoms Review
Stronghold Kingdoms includes a large selection of features from the iconic franchise, but it also implements a number of new mechanics to offer players a more advanced experience. One of most well received features is the ability to play cards during combat. There are dozens of cards available to players in-game and even more can be researched if you have the appropriate building and resource. Playing cards in battle can have a variety of benefits, including summoning extra units or damaging enemy units with powerful abilities.
One of the most innovative aspects of Stronghold Kingdoms is the fact that players actually have a goal to aim for as the game plays through in stages. Other online strategy games offer players a never ending scenario where they cannot be victorious or defeated. Stronghold Kingdoms steps away from that traditional approach and offers intense diplomatic combat as players represent certain houses within their server. Those houses are in a constant power struggle but it is possible for one house to emerge victorious, giving them benefits and bonuses for the next round.
As well as the above features Stronghold Kingdoms is home to many of the mechanics and options available in your favorite MMORTS titles. Build a vast village and expand it into a colossal castle, train a huge army and devastate your enemies, or participate in intense PvP duels representing your house.
