Challenge Islands are here!

Kingdom Two Crowns: Challenge Islands represents the greatest challenge ever seen for hardened veteran monarchs. Can you survive long enough to claim the Gold Crown?

Kingdom Two Crowns: Challenge Islands is a free update. There are three different Challenge Islands to begin with, each tailored for the lonesome monarch as there’s no co-op to help lighten the burden of the difficult challenges ahead. We plan to add additional Challenge Islands further down the road.

With the new Dire Wolf mount as your aid, protect its pup at all costs. No crown, no monarch. No pup, no monarch! Now build the boat and try to escape as you run to as many islands as possible before the inevitable.

Time is running out and you must destroy the Greed Lairs, that’s right “Lairs”, PLURAL! With a Greed Lair on each side and several Greed Portals in between this challenge is fit for only the gods that walk amongst Monarchs. And don’t forget about the volcano that is waiting to explode!

This land has been overrun and on the brink of succumbing to the Greed… FOREVER!  And now a fearsome pandemic is transforming citizens into Greed. The only thing you can do is try to survive as long as possible until your Kingdom is nothing but Greed.


We’ve also added two new achievements for Xbox One, two new trophies for PlayStation 4, and two new achievements for Steam.

Can you survive the toughest obstacles to claim the Gold Crown on each Challenge Island? We doubt it!

Challenge Islands is out on PC, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4.
