Timeless Warfare: The Forge of Empires Battle System

January 12, 2011. Today InnoGames released information on the battle system for its brand new strategic browser game Forge of Empires. The core of the game is to construct an impressive city, but in order to build their empire, players must enlarge their sphere of influence by conquering surrounding provinces. These battles provide countless opportunities to fight adversaries on the battlefield and develop clever tactics to emerge victorious.

Battles in Forge of Empires take place on a Hex field which allows for a number of tactical tricks and options. Every side assembles an army comprised of different types of units with individual strengths and skills. The unit’s special abilities, along with the turn-based system and variation in terrain allow for an immense tactical depth. As the players’ city evolves, battle evolves with it: throughout the centuries new types of units arise, from basic stone-throwing slingers to sophisticated and deadly war machinery.

Forge of Empires is a browser-based strategy game that allows players to create a city and develop it from the Stone Age and onward throughout the centuries. Players can create a vast empire through military campaigns and skillful dealings.
