Firefly Dev Update

Stronghold Next, MetaMorph & Stronghold Kingdoms!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9vRQ6cJEiDs
Now that Stronghold 2: Steam Edition is available, Stronghold Kingdoms has arrived on mobile and MetaMorph: Dungeon Creatures is rapidly approaching release we thought this would be a great time to update everyone on the state of play.

Watch as our very own Lead Designer Simon Bradbury and coders Matt and Jack update you on all things Firefly with a snapshot on production for each title currently in development:
  • Stronghold Next [Working Title] - Now in Active Development
  • MetaMorph: Dungeon Creatures - Coming Soon to Early Access
  • Stronghold Kingdoms - New Updates Planned!
In the video above our three developers provide a quick update on each title including new gameplay, timelines and nuggets of information. As we look forward to the release of MetaMorph: Dungeon Creatures on Steam Early Access and prep for full production and the reveal of Stronghold Next in 2018 this new video is designed to let you know exactly where we’re at.

While Stronghold Kingdoms is already available worldwide you can expect MetaMorph to release very soon, followed by a full reveal of Stronghold Next in the not too distant future. Our reveal of the next mainline entry in the Stronghold series will take place next year, including almost everything we can show at that stage and loads of information. Rather than a simple announcement in the form of a logo reveal you expect gameplay footage, the full title, setting, features and new units all in one go!

We hope you enjoy today’s video and look forward to playing these games and updates in the near future.

Halloween Update

Pumpkin-Head Peasants, New Maps and 15% Off!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b8H8m5PxTTE
Update to the latest version, load up your favourite skirmish map and take a look at the campfire, because something’s not quite right!

A terrible spell has been cast over your (mostly) innocent peasants with the arrival of our Stronghold 2 Halloween Update. Something horrible has happened to your faithful subjects, their once endearing visage twisted and corrupted by the artists at Firefly Studios. Your only hope is to resist the temptation to hollow out and decorate their new noggins, instead putting them to work away from your corrupted keep. You could try burning your problems away with the new wholly cosmetic green wildfire, although we’re told the curse can only be lifted by those who cast it…

Halloween Update

  • Pumpkins – Terrify the locals with horrifically impractical pumpkin-head peasants or break the spell by assigning them work in your castle.
  • New Maps – Besiege friends and family across two new Kingmaker maps, marching armies across bat shaped beaches and pumpkin peninsula.
  • Wildfire – Melt the hearts (also - skin) of your online adversaries by bathing their castles and temporarily disfigured peasants in magical green fire.

New Maps Available!
  1. The Great Pumpkin
  2. Das Bat

Please Note - This event will last one week with the above cosmetic changes in place until 2pm GMT on November 2nd. After this time the spell will break, your peasants returning to normal and the eternal green fire becoming regular garden variety not-at-all-magic fire once again. Any maps added to the game for this event will however remain available via the Steam Workshop links above.

Happy Halloween!
