Raw Fury Games | STOCKHOLM – Oct. 3, 2023 – Your summer’s not over yet! Raw Fury has revealed that Kingdom Eighties, the new standalone game in the award-winning micro-strategy series, will launch on Oct. 16, 2023, for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch, as well as Android and iOS. Pre-registrations and pre-orders are open now on Android and iOS!
This single-player love letter to the nostalgic days of camp, riding bikes to the mall, and sitting around the TV in your pajamas on Saturday mornings is the perfect way to get one last dose of summer fun as the Greed prepare their next attack on the camp, just in time for Halloween!
A stylish new spin on the hit Kingdom franchise, Kingdom Eighties is an epic adventure of micro-strategy and base-building wrapped in the neon-retro vibes of the ‘80s. As the Leader, a young camp counselor, you’ll team up with new friends like the Champ, the Tinkerer, and the Wiz to protect the town of Monarch from the relentless attacks of the mysterious Greed.
Recruit neighborhood kids and assign them roles like soldiers and builders, use coins to build and expand your kingdom, and fortify it by raising walls and defensive turrets. But be ready – when night falls, the Greed will attack without mercy. Explore your town, unlock new mounts, discover powerful weapons and tech upgrades, and manage your resources wisely to survive.
A Step Into the Kingdom Franchise: Kingdom Eighties builds on the series’ well-known world and mechanics with a new experience perfect for newcomers to learn the ropes and fall in love with the franchise.
Befriend Your Trusty Companions: Join forces with three supporting characters who will lend you their aid on your journey: the Champ, the Tinkerer, and the Wiz. Each has different abilities you can combine to progress through the game.
Hit the Streets in Style: Explore new urban locations never before seen in a Kingdom game. Find fresh wheels at the skateboard park, visit the shops on Main Street, and free the New Lands Mall from the Greed.
Live for the Summer: Kingdom's iconic, handcrafted, pixel-art magic is back with a distinctively ‘80s neon feel. Vibe to an original synthwave soundtrack from Andreas Hald, and travel back to the wonder days of bike rides and summer camp, when anything seemed possible!
Brand-New ‘Survival Mixtapes’ Mode: Press play on the mixtape in the pause menu and get ready for heart-pounding survival gameplay. Try your luck beating endless waves of Greed to earn yourself a crown - how many days will you last?
