Free Update for Stronghold Kingdoms Adds Paladin Castles, New Leaderboards

London, UK 07.11.2013 – Stronghold Kingdoms, one of the most popular free to play games on Steam, has just been updated with new player-led gameplay content in the form of PaladinCastles and new leaderboards. Kingdoms remains one of the top ten most popular free to play games on Steam, with more concurrent daily users than titles from heavyweight IPs such as DC Universe Online and Lord of the Rings Online.

Since becoming an independent developer with the release of Stronghold Kingdoms, the development team at Firefly has ensured that any new features would be a product of shared input from players and developers. All of the new features added in this month’s gameplay update were requested by the community and implemented by Firefly. The Stronghold Kingdoms forums, Facebook page and Twitter feed are a constant source of new ideas for the team, who are eternally thankful for the community's constant participation in the development of the game. A quick overview of some of the new features can be found below:

Paladin Castles – These new castles appear in player Parishes giving a popularity bonus, dependent on the size of the castle, to all villages in the Parish. These can be attacked in the same manner as hostile AI Castles, in case you feel like playing dirty.

Extra Leaderboards – New leaderboards have now been added to the game, listing which players have collected the most Glory, made the most Parish donations and razed the most villages!

A full list of new features, tweaks and hotfixes can also be found in the Stronghold Kingdoms forums:
