    FIRST LOOK: NEW EK ASSETS

    After seeing the amazing types of structures the community was trying to build ─ and often could, if only through using the current pieces in unexpected ways ─ we realized that we weren’t giving players quite enough Lego bricks to play with. So, we set about making a new batch of Eternal Kingdom assets for all your fort-building needs. Some of these are revised versions of the current pieces, while others are entirely new.

    Castle Walls

    Every standard wall type, including the gates, will now have hollowed-out versions. These connect with each other and allow you to create interior hallways, giving you the ability to traverse branching labyrinths or the edges of your stronghold while remaining concealed. They also include arrow slits and platforms that will let you spy on, and shoot opponents from, within the protection of the walls themselves.

    We’re also adding a brand-new octagonal tower for connecting your walls in a maximum of eight directions. It’s the ultimate spoke piece, especially when paired with the aforementioned hollow walls. For even more functionality, you can close off the doorways with cap pieces to keep outsiders from sneaking into your fortifications. The additional benefit of this is to offer the option of adjusting the flow of foot traffic through these towers for those of you dreaming of a secret inner-sanctum.

    The previous stone ramp will be replaced by a set of modular ramp pieces that socket to the sides of walls. With these you can create any size ramp in a multitude of directions for great deal of freedom when designing paths up to the tops of ramparts. They are half the width of standard walls and are designed to work seamlessly with the new wooden palisade additions outlined below.

    In a similar design to the ramp pieces described above, the new modular stone arched bridge pieces can be used to create a detailed network of bridges with arched openings. By combining pieces of different sizes, you can build arches of various widths, with huge curves or tiny ones; whatever matches the aesthetic of your stronghold.

    There are also now two additional gate pieces: the simple wall gateway and the diagonal gate. Simple gateways are a wall piece with a framed entry and come in normal and diagonal versions. They socket with the regular castle wall pieces, but have a smaller footprint than the other, larger gates. The diagonal gates are exactly as they sound: gates made to socket with diagonal wall pieces.

    Palisades

    Every palisade wall will be updated to include walkways that come pre-attached to the walls. No fiddling with walkway attachables necessary.

    The archer tower, wooden ramp and wooden bridge pieces are all new annex pieces that will socket to the sides of walls and towers. With these, you can create a system of catwalks and bridges that span your fort at various levels and configurations.

    With the amazing things we’ve already seen our players build, we anticipate some really impressive structures to pop up with these additional pieces. If you want to show off something you create, feel free to post screenshots or videos in the forums, or email us your community creations. We always love to see what you guys create!
