iPhone and iPad owners can look forward to playing a version of Firefly Studios' PC-Mac strategy game Stronghold Kingdoms sometime in the future. The developer announced plans to bring the game to those mobile devices as part of Gamescom 2015.
Firefly states that the game will include cross-platform support so that iOS players can engage with their PC and Mac counterparts:
Stronghold Kingdoms iOS is being developed to expand Kingdoms' player base and give existing players more options for when and how they defend their villages, secure resources and plan attacks. The idea here is to secure the future of the game and make clear our plans to continue supporting Kingdoms, with new features and world types coming. 'Ready when it's ready', the new iOS version is being rebuilt specifically for mobile devices.
Currently being shown to press at Gamescom 2015, Kingdoms on iOS will introduce the game's brand of hardcore strategy to a new audience. As an MMO we know how important an active, growing player base is to the Kingdoms community and the future of the game itself. As such our intention is to develop a bespoke version of this important game, with a user interface that has been redesigned completely for touch while still retaining all key functionality players are used to from the PC version. When it comes to strategy Stronghold Kingdoms iOS will be one of a kind on the App Store.
No release date has been revealed for the iOS version. Stronghold Kingdoms was first launched for the PC in 2010 and finally made its way to the Mac in January 2015.
