Bug fixes:

Kingdom: Two Crowns – Ver. 1.1.14

  • Patch notes:
Norse Lands balance changes
  • Norse Lands Bankers now have extended working hours.
  • The tree in the Norse Lands Vagrant Camp has sadly died and been cut down.
  • Monarchs can now pay for Shield Walls during the day, allowing for preparation for the night’s attack.
  • Reduced the cost for recruiting Berserkers and Berserker Leaders from 6/8 coins to 3/4 coins.
  • Berserkers run faster, jump attack in combat, and have more hit points.
  • Berserkers heal to full health after combat is over.
  • The day 30 blood moon in Norse Lands is now a smaller attack focused on the introduction of the Crusher Greed.
  • The winters of Norse Lands are proving too harsh for the Greed. Wave strength no longer increases during the first two winters.
  • The Crusher greed will now retreat if there are no other Greed on the map, in order to prevent certain scenarios where the player could get soft-locked.
General balance changes
  • Reduced the cost for recruiting citizens at the citizen house from 7 to 5 coins.
  • Builders now walk back to the nearest Kingdom border when they have no more jobs to do.
  • Large groups of Archers will now do a better job at defending the walls.
  • Pikemen can now carry 2 coins.

  • Masked trolls are a bit less effective against walls.
  • Builders will leave their catapult to repair walls in the mornings.
  • Breeders now throw catapult stones back less often.
Bugfixes
  • Fixed an issue that caused antivirus software to block the game, in some cases causing a fatal error saying “il2cpp failed to load”. The game now has a signed certificate that should prevent this from happening.
  • Fixed an issue that caused players with the system language set to Thai or Arabic to experience infinite saving or game freeze at campaign start.
  • More towers can now be built on each island, so the “I HAVE THE TOWER!” achievement should be easier to unlock. In order to access the new towers, you must start a new island or game.
  • Adjusted the text for the “A journey is better shared” achievement to accurately reflect the unlock conditions.
  • Fixed an issue that would cause the game to soft-lock when players paid for the Wall Horn in co-op.

Kingdom: Two Crowns – Ver. 1.1.12

  • Release date: ???
  • Patch notes:

New biome – Norse Lands: Our first premium DLC is set in a domain inspired by Norse Viking culture 1000 C.E. Norse Lands is a full new campaign that expands the world of Kingdom Two Crowns with a unique setting to build, defend, explore, and conquer. In Norse Lands, players can look forward to unleashing abilities drawn upon from Norse gods, commanding mighty units, building Viking-inspired armaments, solving challenging puzzles, and facing a new enemy Greed.

Citizen house: Do you ever find yourself cutting down trees around vagrant camps and then instantly regretting the choices you’ve made? No need to worry! This patch allows you to build citizen houses from the ruins of a vagrant camp. There, you can always recruit new citizens to defend your Kingdom at an increased price.

Unit behavior changes

  • Units will no longer attack portals unless ordered to do so.
  • The Merchant will now payout at any time of day, but only accept payment to leave the Kingdom if it is safe.
  • The Banker will now payout multiple times a day, so long as the player needs coins and the banker has coins.
  • Archers will now only occupy the towers close to the border of your Kingdom or outside of your Kingdom. Additionally, they will no longer leave the safety of the Kingdom at night to try and enter towers.
  • Speaking of Archers in towers: they now shoot further than archers on the ground, and they will hunt from the tower during the day.
  • Up to eight Pikemen can now defend each border of your Kingdom.
  • Vagrants will now turn into Peasants as soon as they finish eating bread. Rulers can still intercept them with coins to save on bread bills.
  • Armored Greedlings are now stronger and tougher to defeat.
  • Breeders now arrive on time with the rest of the wave, and retreat at dawn instead of dying.

Blood Moon & Retaliation wave changes

  • Fixed an issue where Blood Moons would clear incorrectly, leaving your Kingdom vulnerable and without defenses at the end of the wave.
  • Blood Moons and recovery days are now consistent throughout the game, getting more frequent the longer the game lasts. We also added a minor Blood Moon at the end of the first spring, so you’ll get used to it sooner ;)
  • Daybreak will no longer end the onslaught from Blood Moons and Retaliation waves. Your Kingdom won’t be safe until every Greed has been defeated!
  • Fixed lack of cooldown days after Blood Moons in the Dead Lands biome.
  • Retaliation waves are not as punishing as fast, to allow Rulers more portal destruction action before being accidentally overwhelmed.
  • Portal defense waves grow smoothly over time and become more difficult sooner. You’ll need Knights to take portals in the late game because your Squires will die. That’s a promise!

General improvements and bugfixes

  • Ballista towers and catapults are now far more accurate and deadly.
  • The Warhorse ability now triggers on your command and will not happen automatically when you sprint.
  • We know you like to recruit a whole lot of archers and call it a day to feel safe and cozy within your Kingdom walls. Well, our designer Alan wants you to diversify your strategy with more types of units and towers. Your archer army may no longer stand up to the challenge!
  • Decay should be more understandable and less punishing for heirs and returning rulers. Dropped gems no longer decay at all.
  • Fixed an issue with challenge island data. Achieving the cursed crown in all challenges will once again result in your ruler wearing the cursed crown in the campaign.
  • Implemented support for wide and ultrawide screen resolutions.
  • Fixed an issue with Korean translation.
  • Additional notes: none.

In order to experience BALANCE changes you will need to start a new campaign.

  • Nintendo Switch specific patch notes:

New features:

  • Hunting during winter: While the smaller animals go into winter hibernation, there’s other animals that suddenly appear as the snow starts falling on the ground. But beware that you must first find this menacing animal deep in the forest, and once confronted it’s much tougher than the regular small game that roamed outside the walls of your kingdom during spring, summer and autumn.
  • Foraging during winter: Since the farms can’t harvest during winter, the Farmers have discovered foraging to bring in a bit of extra income. It’s not much but every bit helps.
  • Shinobi: Who says being a stealth warrior at night is all we’re good for?! During long nights of waiting in ambush the Shinobi came up with a brilliant way to pass time during the day instead of just sleeping.
  • Introducing the Gem Chest: Those gems sure are a heavy burden to carry around while you explore for valuable upgrades to use gems on. Now you can lighten your purse and store the gems in a stone chest. This appears by the Wharf once you’ve upgraded your Kingdom to a Stone Castle. Storing gems is a costly business, so it won’t be free for the Monarch to offload those precious gems.
  • Other updates: In addition to the above there’s also fixes and changes such as an upgrade to the Stable to make switch Steeds more affordable, improving appearance of shops on the edge of your kingdom walls as you expand, and optimisation of save data compression, to mention a few. We have also included Brazilian-Portuguese as a language option and improved the Russian text.

Balance:

  • Switching steeds in the stable is now more affordable.
  • Improved appearance of shops on the edge of your kingdom walls as you expand.

Fixes:

  • Forge now spawns correctly.
  • Added failsafe for rogue hermits which could cause it to become impossible to travel away from islands as the game was waiting for a hermit who never spawned to board the boat.
  • Improved Russian language option.
  • Optimized save data compression. This should prevent the save data to become too large which was the cause of the save issues.
  • Fixed graphical biome issue.

  • Release date: January 14th 2019 (North America, Europe) / January 15th 2019 (Japan)
