Achievements Update

New Objectives, Higher Levels and Tracking

Greetings Sire. The latest Stronghold Kingdoms update includes a host of new challenges. Numerous additions to the Achievements system provide the Lords and Ladies of SHK with new objectives and higher goals for existing achievements. Read on for changes to the forest-type Castle screen, a new forest area and more:

New Achievements – Earn the 'Evil Lord' title by nefariously ridding the lands of Paladin Castles or claim the title of 'Treasure Hunter' by salvaging riches from Treasure Castles.

Achievement Levels – 'Double Diamond', 'Triple Diamond' and 'Sapphire' levels now require more skill and enduring when earning your medals, but also rewarding you more generously than ever before.

Achievement Tracker – Players can now view and track their progress for most Achievements by hovering over the medals.

New Castle Screen – Lords and Ladies with forest type villages will now find forests surrounding their castles on the Castle screen.

Extra Proclamations – Governors and Kings are now able to send proclamations more frequently, once every three days.

We hope you enjoy these new additions to the game! The ability to track Achievements has been a frequent player request for some time now, so it gives us great pleasure to add this along with extended levels and new Achievement types.

Avatars Update

New Outfits Added!

Sire, I have some troubling news. Your peasants have had the gall to discuss your current attire amongst themselves... Rumour has it that your majestic clothing is outdated! While we of course disagree with such contumelious talk and would rather have everyone hanged, we do need workers. So we have ordered some new clothes for you to try on, my Lord! The newest Stronghold Kingdoms updates adds 29 unseen garments and accessories to your wardrobe, bringing new style to the Kingdom! Entertain your sedulous and loyal troops by wearing turquoise bunny ears on the battlefield, let a scar across your battle-hardened face send shivers of terror through your enemies' veins or demonstrate your fearlessness by walking on a bed of ravaging flames. Create one of 4,608 new avatars as you please (Not counting colour variations) or let us put together a random unique outfit for you to try on.

With larger updates scheduled for the next few months we are thankful for your continued support, providing us with a steady flow of new ideas and suggestions. Don't forget to visit the forums and submit your unique suggestions and make your mark on the Kingdoms experience, allowing you to be an active participant in the transformation of our Castle MMO. We already have a list of surprises lined up for you, large and small, which we can't wait to share!

Update 14: Strategy Cards

More than 20 new strategy cards have been added to Stronghold Kingdoms. Aimed at both new and veteran players, our August update affects all areas of gameplay from taxation to honour and warfare. These new cards, which can either be bought or acquired through gameplay, come in a variety of different flavours. Heavy Haulage boosts production of raw materials, Super Tax provides access to extra tax bands and Renown Philosopher instantly completes a large amount of research. Whether you're a card collector aiming to complete the Kingdoms deck or a warlord looking to deliver the killing blow, this new update has something for everyone.

Improvements have also been made to the attacks system, allowing players to set a list of rival targets through the world map and prepare more effectively timed attacks. Finally a Shield of the Week gallery has been created on the official Stronghold Kingdoms website, collecting and immortalising the years of work players have put into their in-game Coat of Arms.

Game Description


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, so no subscription or upfront payment is required.

Pointless grind just to get captured by a big player once you grow your town big enough so it is worth taking. Alternatively you can throw piles of money at the game and hope to grow a bit before getting captured anyway.

Whilst this game is entertaining for a while, it soon becomes obvious that you will soon be crushed by rediculously overbearing armies from more advanced players. Add to that the pestering for ingame pay-to-win currency, and it's worse than, say, facebook's Sparta game.

The game starts out fun and then just becomes a timesink. Once the world gets to a certain age its all about the "Pay To Win" and if you want to not die, then you better be playing (and buying) 10+ cards a day.
Would totaly recomend you bash your head on your desk for just as much enjoyment.

"Pay To Win" all I can say to you. If you are spoiled you will have fun otherwise not worth the time you spend! Keep out. don't get addicted and quite knowing there is a spoiled 10 yearold that is constantly beating your A.S.S with his parents money! If only this world wasn't all about greed.......

I have to say that I only played this game thanks to a former friend, and to be honest...I'm not that impressed with it.
This game is above all a time consumer, like most free to play strategy games. It is both a time consumer, and involves a lot of politics. For most people, this is okay; for the casual gamer who likes to spend a few minutes every day managing a castle and speaking with people in your parish and your house when you get higher up it works out alright. It can have its fun moments, and equally its pretty jerkish moments with other players, as regardless of what you're doing or how you are playing there are still many other players out there on your world that are playing at the exact same time as you are, and some take this game hardcore.

This game...is too slow. Way too slow. I can see why; it's meant to keep players engaged in a game about castles with other people. I can appreciate a game being slow for the sake of realism. But if I'm going to be gathering resources, building a city, constructing a castle, or making soldiers I would like the luxury of designing everything in the glory of realtime thanks to technology. I'm used to playing games like Age of Empires, Starcraft, Supreme Commander and the like, where playing too slow gets you booted, so when I'm forced to go immensely slow just to see my fifth or sixth pig farm get built to feed my many cities, I got a bit batsh-erhem...I go a bit wonky.

I got as far as Prince before I gave up on this game. My house was unlucky enough to be one of the lesser houses on the winning side, and knowing my luck another house would not pick up me or my faction due to the low priority of both my parish and my region. So, I bade my party farewell and offed my castles, and have lived the better for it. Too bad I'm not going to be getting all those hours back I should have spent studying for college.

At first it was fun after a while then it was merely impossible. It was hard for me to keep up with activity (especialy when im at school) It can take hours up to days to build something,research something and have villagers come over.The thing that really bugs me is that AI's or players can attack at any time it dosen't matter if you are online or offline they can attack all they want and the castle just keeps getting damaged and could even get robbed of resources...all over and over again.Now i think of this game is a chore and a pay to win.

this is one of those ''microtransactions'' games, it feels like it could be a mobile game.
evengtough the storepage says ''free to play'' it is not onley play to win, but also pay to to play.
anyone with a normaly functioning brain knows that there trying to get as much money as posible.
unless you are some rich mofo with some cash to burn you sould play the game.

This is one of the best online strategy games with a great combination of strategy, tactics and politics, but (and this is where I agree with so many of the other reviews) the balance of the game is so extraordinarily in favor of the buying-system it is basically unplayable without spending a lot of money.

The problem is that there is no limit on the usage of the cards in the game. The more cards you have, the more troops you have, the faster they move and the stronger they are. You win by spending money -period-

GAME:
Looks nice, plays well.
But even though it's on steam. It is for me to much as a browergame.

If you want more cards per week, you need to spend money, the amount is luckly up to you.
It does not need to take much time. it is something you can check ones or twise a day. for about 5 till 10 minutes.

COMMUNITY:
Silent, not interactive. you really need to search for players that want to chat or say something. because even though the servers are active.. not a word is spoken/writen most of the time.


In overall I still do note this as "not recommended". It takes a long time and at some point it takes to long for people that does not spend money to it.

Eh so I was confused about this game. As in no aspect made sense. I understand they were going for a "build you own kingdom" style but they do it in such a confusing manor. Im not even sure what to do or what was taking place which is a reason I was skeptic about reviewing this in the first place. If you do understand whats going on then it might be some fun but for pretty much everyone else this made no sense. Just a bunch of random icons that appear to do nothing but open up more windows on the game that makes less sense.

You have to know the rules of the game. Another player took my castle for no reason, many hours of game play wasted. As a beginner you are nothing more than a feeder for everyone else. Stay away unless you like being ♥♥♥♥ed over.

After one day of exciting gaming, it becomes tedious and at the end of the second day, there are so few things to do at this very very slowzzz..., that I have decided to leave the game. My “premium try out” ran out. That’s when I found out what a big advantage paying players has when they are asleep/at work/school; Auto trading, Auto scouting for important goods, Auto attacking, Auto recruiting and Vacation mode up to 15 days where no one can attack you. Mind you all disadvantages for free-players. Besides the premium, one can buy cards. To get cards one has to buy crowns. Crowns comes in packages from 3,56 euros to 114,99 euros and gives various big advantages in the gameplay. Besides these disadvantages as a free player, one can only work on one quest at a time, some take hours and even days. For instance as a new player, your scouts horse is so slow that you think it is dead, which makes it impossible to get to any of the hidden stashes before other players with speedy horses gets them. Another thing; In some EU countries it is illegal to get people use the feature “send email to a friend” to obtain certain goods. In my first two days I have encountered 2 highly important quests like that. I am really disappointed about this form of illegal activity in a free Steam game! But of course, both times I have sent mail to fictive persons! Now I just need to delete my account, for I am sure that is easy and possible (again according to law).

I would like to buy a similar game, but when bought, one can’t pay to win. Does a game like that exist?
