Firefly's new MMO catapults into action.
Firefly Studios has unveiled the next Stronghold game as "the world's first castle-based MMO", which will see players rise from peasant to lord of the parish and then maybe even King or Queen.
Firefly founder Simon Bradbury told Eurogamer he's aiming for an "early 2010" launch, and that he hopes to offer a beta before the end of the year.
"We are in a closed alpha today and will be launching a much bigger beta towards the end of this year," he said. "Any MMO - even a different one like ours - takes time to brew up, as I'm sure you know. So that time frame puts us at about 60 per cent complete!"
