A free update is now available for Kingdom Two Crowns. It adds the Challenge Islands, which is said to represent the "greatest challenge" ever seen for hardened veteran monarchs. It's simply a matter of surviving long enough to claim the crown.

This update includes three different islands (Dire Island, Skull Island and Plague Island) and you'll also get a new Dire Wolf mount. Additional islands will be added in the future. Unfortunately, though, it doesn't include co-op. Here's a bit more from the official blog post:

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.

There are also many bug fixes and quality of life improvements in this update, such as one that allows you to play the game with one hand. You can view the full details over on Raw Fury's website. If you would like to learn more about the game itself, check out our review.
