Firefly Studios, the creators of the Stronghold series, has just announced that their popular Castle MMO, Stronghold Kingdoms, has remained one of the top three most popular free-to-play games on Steam for over a year now.
The only two games to come above the game were: Team Fortress 2 and Planetside 2. Stronghold Kingdoms have defended their title and defeated games such as Lord of the Rings Online and APB Reloaded.
?We actually entered the free-to-play space well in advance of the game?s launch on Steam, with an open beta starting in 2010?, said Marketing Manager Nick Tannahill. ?That gave us over a year to experiment with the design aspects of what was our first free-to-play game, before the flood of new users that came with our launch on Steam in 2012. So when free-to-play finally arrived in the mainstream we were ready, it didn?t catch us off guard. Kingdoms was built from the ground up as a free-to-play game and that played a massive role in its success. We?re lucky to have a fantastic community of players who care deeply about the game. Self-publishing Kingdoms allows us to have an open and honest dialogue with them, which means a lot to us?.
What is going on with the game currently are more updates to come with Captain Skills, and new strategy cards, game play tweaks, new worlds and support for more languages.
League of Legends or DOTA 2?
