Hamburg, July 19, 2012. Today InnoGames announced an additional age for its strategy browser game Forge of Empires: The Colonial Age. The new Age comes with additional military units and buildings, some of them already displayed in graphics published along the release. An Update containing the Colonia Age is planned to go live within the next month. Aside from that, InnoGames released updated information on several more features in the Forge of Empires blog.
One of the features announced there are the Great Buildings. By collecting blueprints, and with the help of friends and guild members, players will construct some of the most legendary buildings in history, like the Coliseum, Angkor Wat or Notre Dame. These buildings provide cities with significant stat boosts. Also, several new multiplayer-aspects will enrich the game. Next to the friend's lists feature and additional social interactions, fans of competitive multiplayer can look forward to live-PvP fights and guild-versus-guild battle maps. Guild battles will involve a large number of players who can collaborate and fight each other. All these features are planned to be implemented within this year.
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. The game has also recently been nominated as best Browser Game at the European Games Awards. The awards are open for public votes until Monday, August 13.
