King of the Castle launches brand-new ‘Democracy Manifest’ update today

2 min read


Dozens of new events form the core of the new Democracy Manifest update to Tributary Games’ medieval multiplayer party game of treachery, fiefdoms, and bejewelled crabs.

Tributary Games and Team17 Digital have today launched Democracy Manifest, a new update for King of the Castle, which sees players band together online with up to 3,000 others to steer the fate of a fictional fantasy kingdom and reckon with treacherous – and often hilarious – consequences. The update brings 59 new events to the game, including ‘The Rightful Heir’ event chain that introduces a potential tale of revenge against usurpers of the throne, and the ‘Jailbreak’ event chain, which sees an imprisoned noble break out and cause havoc in the kingdom.

Democracy Manifest also sees the introduction of several community requested features, including the ability for Premium Nobles (those who have bought King of the Castle) to choose the region they join; new schemes will be available, including a loyalist scheme available to winning regions to select; new Noble shields have also been added, alongside new Twitch drops, and a rework of the game’s user interface to enhance its readability.
