Kings of the Realm is a free to play browser MMORTS developed by Digit Gaming and published by Kabam. It’s a fantasy themed game that takes place in a fictional realm called Vinland. Players start with a small settlement that has the potential to become the most powerful Vinland kingdom. However, this is not an easy task because there are lots of players that aspire to become Kings of the Realm. Game mechanics focus on strategic city development.
A Kings of the Realm city is formed of several districts, each one has a specific purpose. The production districts provide players with the resources needed to recruit military troops. There are 4 types of resources: food, timber, stone and ore. A certain amount of resources is produced every hour, there are also buildings that increase production. Storage facilities such as warehouses are important as well. Gathering as much resources as possible in a short period of time is the main concern for starting players. Many RTS games offer 1 week of newbie protection but Kings of the Realm offers only a few hours so new users should quickly prepare for incoming PvP attacks. Skipping the tutorial to save time is not a good idea because this short in game guide teaches basic game features. After collecting some resources, it’s time to start gathering military force. Armies consist of different types of units and a commander that leads the troops in battle. Commanders are gradually unlocked when players reach the required level. There are 15 different commanders, each one has a set of stats, unique attributes and has 8 unit slots. Kings of the Realm units are divided based on their role: infantry, ranged, cavalry and special units. Each category has multiple types of available troops. The best Kings of the Realm troops are the special ones but they require high level commanders. Building an army is one of the most challenging gameplay aspects. Each unit has stats, strengths and weaknesses. The trick is to mix different types of units to achieve a balanced fighting force.
Kings of the Realm is a game with both PvE and PvP content. Mob encampments are found all over the map. When all monsters that protect the encampment are defeated, players are rewarded with precious resources. After combat, players should take care of damaged units because commanders cannot head into another battle with injured troops. Resources are consumed to heal units. Kings of the Realm is a free MMO with fair PvP rules. High level players are not allowed to farm new players settlements for resources. Kings of the Realm can be quite challenging but it’s also exciting and entertaining so it’s definitely worth a try.
