Kingdom Rush: Vengeance launches for iOS and Android next month

Mobile’s best tower defense franchise is back

Ryan Gilliam (he/him) has worked at Polygon for nearly seven years. He primarily spends his time writing guides for massively popular games like Diablo 4 & Destiny 2.

Kingdom Rush: Vengeance — the fourth title in the Kingdom Rush franchise — will be released for iOS and Android devices on Nov. 22. Pre-orders for the game are currently available on the App Store and Google Play, and will set players back $4.99.

Unlike other Kingdom Rush games, Vengeance is all about the bad guys. Vez’nan, the dark wizard from the first Kingdom Rush, has returned to cause terror and havoc. But this time, players will be working for Vez’nan instead of trying to stop him.

Players will be able to build 16 different towers — a step up from each past entries eight unique towers — to take on the ever-marching forces of good. But unlike past games in which players wielded druids, elves, dwarves and men, Vengeance will set players up with orc fortresses and zombie crypts to control. As always, Kingdom Rush: Vengeance will offer player-controlled heroes to fight alongside their allied towers.

Kingdom Rush: Vengeance’s developer, Ironhide, has been responsible for Kingdom Rush, Kingdom Rush: Frontiers, and Kingdom Rush: Origins. Last year, the studio published their first RTS game on mobile devices, Iron Marines. Vengeance will be the first Kingdom Rush game since Origins was released in 2014.

It’s currently unclear if Kingdom Rush: Vengeance will make it to Steam, as the other Kingdom Rush games have. Polygon has reached out to Ironhide for additional comment.
