The Industrial Age Dawns in Forge of Empires

Hamburg, January 30, 2013. Today, InnoGames released the first graphics from Forge of Empires’ upcoming era: the Industrial Age. A completely fresh campaign and map awaits players, set in The New World. In addition, updated architecture, more than 70 quests and Industrial age technologies are ready to be discovered. 

Players will be able to unlock technology previously unavailable in the game at the end of the Colonial Age – such as ballistics, precision tools, and modern chemistry – all which will help as battles heat up in the newly discovered Wild West.  Back at home, the Great Buildings can be erected in cities, along with beautiful and detailed Victorian style housing for inhabitants, factories, and even a natural history museum.  

The new age will be open on all markets in the coming weeks. Players can stay updated on the status of the game in the forums, or on Facebook.

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 about 100 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.
