Just Updated 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 the 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.

Stronghold Kingdoms reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
TL; DR: Don't Waste your Time playing this Game! First of all, everyone will notice the Interface, which is likely to be several Decades old and may have simply been taken from some Centuries-old Kit (probably to save Development Costs). The really saved (or the Developers are just very Money-hungry) you can see the absolutely bad Decisions which Features are implemented as ' premium only '. An Overview of his Villages? -Premium only Higher Level for the weekly ' Free ' cards? -Number us only in different Stages money Also you can only activate with Premium car attacks, recruiting, acting, customers, which is basically so: The Game plays itself when you give It money. As has often been written, the Game is pure Pay2Win, as with enough Money at any time right after a big Fight you can replenish your entire army, over and over again within a few Clicks of the mouse, which takes Hours to Days in ' normal ' players by a few Soldiers to get Back. These are once the technical Points that become just really frightening when you are confronted directly with the fact that you could build up for 40 Days and yet are swept away by a just added Lvl1er because he gets his Wallet into it Game emptied. In terms of community, it should also be said that on the slightly more populated (German) Servers you can directly see that there are virtually no New Beginners there or whose Villages are wiped out as soon as possible because they do not please another. Why? Because you didn't pay any Money and therefore the castle Defense could not be built fast enough and some big People just want to have complete communities to themselves, as far as the building Plots there also are concerned. So as long as someone doesn't plan to invest tens Of months ' salary and Bank Loans in this Game, you should quickly forget about this Game and make the Developers think if their Decision Is Geld> Player right. Addendum of October 26: Now it has really pushed this Community too far ... As soon as you manage to find an even empty Habitable community you can enjoy the few Hours you are alone, because as soon as you have built a village there, an Alarm seems to shrill with all the surrounding members of one of the Houses and it comes ' Almost Overnight ' to an Invasion of D-Day Proportions: All Construction Sites in the Municipality are occupied directly by the House Members and the Villages are pumped directly with Resource maps to put them directly on max. To bring Levels, to take up Municipal Elections in order to make yourself a Vogt And you only get the ' nice ' invitation to get somewhere else ' ' because that Territory now belongs to the others... So you don't have a big money bag you will be directly referred from the paying players of the Servers ...
