Netmarble has released a new MMORTS game called Firstborn: Kingdom Come to go up against competing games like Lords Mobile. Unfortunately, the game seems to be stuck in development as a soft launch in select countries, limiting its exposure to gamers worldwide. But don't let this hiccup deter you — we've found a simple workaround to play the game on your iPhone right now.
Firstborn Kingdom Come is an ambitious online strategy game that combines elements of base-building, quest-driven role-playing, and massive battle genres to create an all-encompassing game that leaves no stones unturned. The game offers ton of content that's guaranteed to keep you glued to your device for hours on end.
In addition to continual maintenance and upgrades to your city and its defenses, Firstborn Kingdom Come lets you build up a massive army to help you in your mission of world domination. If this weren't enough, the game even features RPG-like campaigns which let you utilize individual heroes that you can level up and customize to ensure your success as you embark on quests for loot and glory.
Firstborn Kingdom Come will work on the iPhone 6 or newer models as long as the device is running iOS 8.0 or higher. Since the game is only available in Australia, Netherlands, Turkey, and Sweden, you'll need to create a Apple ID based in one of the countries listed before you can download the game. We recommend Netherlands, as it's a popular country for soft-launching games.
Fortunately, creating an App Store login for a different country is easy — simply sign up for a new Apple ID using a valid email account and a realistic home address for the Netherlands. After that, sign into your iOS device using your newly-created spoof account. For more help with this part of the process, check out the following guide.
Once you've set up a Netherlands-based App Store account, installing the game will be the same exact process as installing any other game or app. So either head to the App Store and search for "Firstborn: Kingdom Come" to download it, or tap the following link from your iOS device.
Because it's a soft-launched game, Firstborn Kingdom Come may have some minor bugs. In our testing, however, the game ran perfectly fine on an iPad Pro, iPhone 8, and iPhone SE that were all on iOS 11.2.2. Are you enjoying Firstborn Kingdom Come as much as we are?
