MEDIA INFORMATION - 8th December 2011
Today InnoGames unveiled the first trailer for its upcoming epic strategy browser game Forge of Empires. The trailer illustrates how civilizations can grow from small Stone Age settlements to impressive empires by the power of ideas and inventions. Researching new technologies plays a major role in the game – and can turn the tide of history!
With an “exclusive preview” coming soon and the game scheduled to launch early 2012, this fantastic free to play browser game boasts high production graphics and engaging depth of gameplay. In order to gain access to advanced construction and units and to move your Empire through the ages, players must research the greatest achievements of mankind. From basic ideas such as woodwork and smithing, to complex inventions like gunpowder and cartography, players must decide which inventions will be vital to the future of their city. Only by researching technologies will you be able to gather rare resources and create spectacular buildings like castles and cathedrals.
Through trade, military campaigns and skillful dealings, players can create their own vast empire. On www.forgeofempires.com, InnoGames has already posted screenshots and artwork from the game. Those who create an account on the website will have the chance to gain a slot in the “Exclusive Preview”: a limited access period which will begin before the closed beta.
With about 75 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.
