Hamburg, April 26, 2012. InnoGames just published additional information regarding its strategic browser game Forge of Empires , which recently started an open beta. Excited by overwhelmingly positive initial feedback, the team announced future expansion plans: The game, which can be played in English and German so far, will be available in additional languages, including French, Dutch, Polish, Spanish and Portuguese within the next few weeks. Also, prospective rulers can look forward to the upcoming era, the Colonial Age, as well as new social features.
In Forge of Empires, 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. Other players’ cities can be visited and, while admiring structures and placement of buildings, be supported by polishing decorations or motivating workers for increased happiness or resource outcome. Additionally, one must foster a healthy culture for citizens and establish trade and production of various resources.
Forge of Empires also contains a long-term single player campaign, as well as an ever-growing number of PvP-features, which offer months of entertainment. A turn-based battle system on a hex-field and other tactical facets to the game will keep strategists’ attention and allow for challenging duels with friends and adversaries. Competitive players can fight for top ranks and medals in weekly tournaments. InnoGames provides additional information in the game’s blog.
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.
