Firefly Studios has just announced that Stronghold Kingdoms will be leaving its open beta phase next week, with a release date set for Wednesday 17th October 2012. Following on from the addition of Quests, the new Coat of Arms Designer, graphical updates and a milestone of one million registered players, Stronghold Kingdoms will be released with a new update that adds all-new sound effects to the game.
New sound effects have been one of the most frequently requested features for Stronghold Kingdoms, adding a layer of immersion to the game that appeals to players new and old. Battles now rumble with the marching and clash of armies, scouts can be heard galloping to their next target and traders carting off to the parish capital with their goods. There are also a number of sounds added to the user interface, providing better feedback for players.
