Stronghold Kingdoms: Rise of The Wolf is a special game world featuring classic Stronghold characters, improved AI and PvE (player-versus-environment) gameplay. In this new game mode players are assigned a location on a medieval map of the British Isles. Holding back a tide of attacks from The Wolf, The Snake, The Pig and The Rat, who have returned to exact their revenge after the events of the original Stronghold, players must cooperate to survive. Only by engaging enemy troops to take back villages and winning votes in the political arena can players hope to succeed. Rise of The Wolf is a faster, more challenging game world designed for large numbers of players working together in pursuit of a common goal, fighting for both land lost and the support of the people.

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!
