Now that the Android version of Stronghold Kingdoms is out in the wild on Google Play, full cross-play has become available on PC, Mac, iOS and Android. You can now go head-to-head or join forces with other players on mobile, with the ability to play using your existing account. Compatible with Android 5.0 (Lollipop) or later, Stronghold Kingdoms on Android is the full game on mobile and allows you to continue playing away from your PC.

Many existing PC players have been looking forward to playing on Android, so it gives us great pleasure to finally release the game on Google Play! We hope you enjoy the new cross-play functionality and look forward to more Stronghold Kingdoms updates this year! We have several new game world launches planned for 2017 including entirely new maps, in addition to smaller updates and entirely new game features for all versions.

Thank you from everyone at Firefly Studios for your support and patience during development of the mobile versions. It means a great deal to the Kingdoms team to finally be able to introduce mobile to PC cross-play and we can't wait to show you what's coming in the near future.

With today’s release of Stronghold Kingdoms on iOS cross-play has finally been added to all versions of the game. This new feature allows players to build, fortify and siege on the same account across desktop and mobile devices, with support for Android to be added when that version launches on August 31st.

While new mobile players will have to register for a full Kingdoms account in-game after downloading the app, existing players can simply download and log in using their registered email and password. With the full game playable on mobile, players can switch between each version of the game at will:

  • Full Game – Enjoy the full MMO grand strategy experience, played by millions on PC.
  • New Controls – Dominate rival players with intuitive touch controls designed for mobile devices.
  • Cross-Play – Do battle with thousands of other Lords playing together on iOS, PC, Mac and soon on Android.
  • New Graphics – Play using an all-new interface complete with graphical enhancement.

Whether you join forces with your mobile brethren or go head-to-head in a clash of the platforms is up to you. Either way you can now access your castle from work, school, home and even while you’re on vacation. Our first mobile release is a huge achievement for Firefly and we can’t wait to hear what you think of it!

Following the release of Stronghold Kingdoms on Android in two weeks’ time players can expect updates for all versions of the game. While certain mobile improvements may make their way into the PC game we also have major features, new game worlds and a wealth of quality of life improvements planned for veteran Kingdoms players!

Now Available - Stronghold Kingdoms: Heretic


Designed for PvE and PvP players battling together in a single game world, Stronghold Kingdoms: Heretic offers you two choices... Either crusade with fellow lords against nefarious Stronghold characters like The Wolf or join them go heretic! Build up kill streaks as you capture and destroy AI villages or betray your fellow players and unleash total anarchy.

Stronghold Kingdoms: Heretic is a world where allies can betray you in the blink of an eye. Any player ranked Bondsman or above can turn, so watch your back! For the noble crusader there is the prospect of Honour bonuses, an increased Faith Point cap and a place on the in-game leaderboard. For the heretic? Chaos is its own reward.

Join the Crusade!

About This Game



Live the life of a medieval lord in Stronghold Kingdoms, the world’s first persistent castle MMO. A unique PC Strategy game, Stronghold Kingdoms brings together online interactivity and community, with a richly-depicted medieval world and thousands of real world players.

Besiege the castle that’s never been taken, overthrow ruthless tyrants, bankroll your faction’s war effort, pillage your neighbour’s resources, peacefully raise cattle or do it all! A range of stats, rankings and achievements gives every player something to aim for, from ‘Banquet King’ and ‘Peacebringer’ to 'Besieger of the Month' and ‘Lionheart'! Factions, elections, liege lords and their vassals all provide a real sense of structured community, with many different ways to chat with other players, discuss strategies and build allegiances.

While an impregnable castle should be at the heart of any lord or lady's domain, you can also specialise with a vast research tree. Starting as a humble peasant, each promotion brings with it valuable research points to spend on trading, diplomacy, warfare, farming, religion and more. Be aware though, as your power grows so does your responsibility. Your vassals and parishioners will look to you for guidance and leadership. You may find yourself fighting for the crown itself!

Key Features

  • Build Your Online Stronghold - Crush the invading hordes with impenetrable castle defences. Then launch a counterattack!
  • Plot the Perfect Village - Plan your village layout, arrange buildings for maximum productivity and watch it come to life.
  • Explore a Vast Research Tree - Are you a farmer, trader, diplomat or warlord? Research new technology to specialise and gain the edge.
  • Fight For Your Faction - Join a faction, attack its enemies and return triumphant with their captured banners!
  • Play for Free! - Stronghold Kingdoms is free to play with no subscription or upfront payment required.
