Forge of Empires Launches Colonial Age

Hamburg, October 8, 2012. InnoGames just implemented an additional era into the new browser game Forge of Empires. With the Colonial Age, players of the international version of the game can now travel beyond the Late Middle Ages - exploring the new time period, its additional technologies, units and a whole new area waiting to be conquered. The update will soon follow on other markets, including Germany and France.

The Colonial Age comes along with 54 new story quests - leading the player through a fantastic story with a surprising twist. Players will be fighting pirates, trading foreign goods, founding colonies and challenging stronger enemies than ever before. Technologies and achievements like exploration, industrial goods and maritime warfare are included in the update, as well as a bonus area for ambitious players. There, rewards, like goods, units, medals and diamonds can be earned by conquering especially challenging provinces. InnoGames is already working on further eras that will bring the game up to the present and beyond.

Forge of Empires is a browser-based strategy game, where players, tasked with leading their own city to prosperity can research new technologies, build impressive historical buildings and enlarge their sphere of influence through military campaigns and skillful dealing. With nearly four million registrations within five months, the game has been the most successful start in the InnoGames history.

With about 90 million registered players, InnoGames is one of the world's leading developers and providers of online games. The Hamburg-based company has scored major successes with games such as Tribal Wars, The West and Grepolis.
