Forge of Empires Progressive Era launched

Hamburg, July 30, 2013. Today InnoGames,released the Progressive Era for its strategic browser game Forge of Empires on all major markets. The Progressive Era is the gamersquo;s ninth age and introduces major new features, such as tarmac roads for automobiles, a completely new world map and single player campaign and the introduction of trenches and tanks to the battle maps.

Progressive technologies and achievements, such as zeppelins, two-lane streets and billboards will drastically change the vista of playersrsquo; towns. The single-player campaign takes place on the largest continent to explore so far. While struggling for military control over the new area, players can choose from several options, to support either of the rivaling factions, or to strive for a peaceful solutionndash; but they have to be careful!

Not everything is as it seems, and soon, they are entangled in a murderous play of power, lies and deceit. With over 50 quests, the story campaign is one of the most extensive to date, and it contains several key NPCs, like Queen Lydia, General Joffre and Tsar Piotr, to deal with.

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.
