STRONGHOLD KINGDOMS BURSTS INTO A SECOND WORLD, LAUNCHES NEW WEBSITE AND TRAILER

Simon Bradbury, creative director of Firefly, said“Lords and ladies have been fighting over contested lands in our medieval castle-builder since we launched Stronghold Kingdoms. Now demand has become so strong in the Beta that we’ve had to release a whole new world. We’re already seeing new players jostling for position and vying to become the first King of England in Stronghold Kingdoms World 2.”

Firefly also announces a new website for Kingdoms ( www.strongholdkingdoms.com) and the launch of brand new trailer showcasing the MMO that has already attracted tens of thousands of players to the open beta. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ox8v053RdUM

Eric Ouellette, CEO of Firefly Studios, said,“Since we opened the beta of Stronghold Kingdoms last November, the response has been amazing. We knew that gamers loved Stronghold, but they have taken to Stronghold Kingdoms in droves.  We are loving their enthusiasm, and look forward to bringing more features and more fun to our legions of fans.
