Stronghold Kingdoms Still the 2nd Most Popular Free-to-Play Game on Steam

Firefly Studios today announced that Stronghold Kingdoms has remained the second most popular free-to-play game on Steam for over six months.

Stronghold Kingdoms has made a name for itself on the Steam platform since its launch on the service six months ago. Claiming the number two spot in Steam’s free-to-play section ahead of titles like APB Reloaded and Age of Empires Online, Kingdoms has remained the second most popular free-to-play game for more than six months now.

Instantly popular with Steam users and showing few signs of slowing down, Kingdoms has managed to hold off against newcomers to the free-to-play space. Well-received games like Tribes: Ascend and Blacklight: Retribution have since entered the charts, but have done little to dethrone Kingdoms from its spot at number two. The game has even managed to break into the overall top ten played games on Steam, a chart that includes popular Steam choices like Dota 2, Counter-Strike and ARMA II, required to play the popular Day-Z game modification.

To mark the occasion Firefly has released the first in a series of tutorial videos for Kingdoms, designed to help new players. Recent additions to the game include a new Quests system and several new worlds, with the intention to bring Kingdoms to new platforms and territories. The game currently has over one million registered users.
