Kingdom Rush Vengeance is releasing the Hammerhold DLC on Apple Arcade next month

Ironhide Game Studios has just announced that they will be releasing a brand new campaign for Kingdom Rush Vengeance. Titled Hammerhold, this new questline will launch exclusively on Apple Arcade in December 2023. Players can expect a lot of new content in the form of five new levels, enemies, heroes, thrilling boss fights, and much more.

Hammerhold is the kingdom’s last bastion and Kingdom Rush Vengeance players are in for a big surprise. The Dark Lord plans to catch the Legionnaire resistance off guard by striking at the desert shores. Players will be the ones in command of the Dark Army’s towers and champions as they take part in epic missions. Exhilarating combat awaits everyone as the Kingdom’s bravest heroes return.

The DLC comes with five new stages taking place in the desert. Once players land at the desert’s shores, they must fight through armies before getting a break at the Sape Oasis. Pyramids are also waiting to be explored as players try to seize all of Hammerhold. On their way, they will find more than ten new enemy types, including assassins, war elephants, djinns, and even magic carpets.
