Forge of Empires is a massively popular historical strategy game for iOS and Android. It has millions of players from over 20 different countries around the globe. In the game, players guide a village through the different of phases of human history from the stone age to the far future. With careful planning and strong military tactics players can expand their territory and grow their own empire.
InnoGames have recently added ‘cultural settlements’ to the game starting with the Vikings. Other cultures are planned for the future but the opportunities that leading a Viking horde in their quest for world domination is certainly an exciting place to start.
You can check out some of the game designers discussing the expansion in the video below:
Armin Busen, Chief Product Officer at InnoGames said:
“With the Cultural Settlements, Forge of Empires is opening up entirely new possibilities for entertaining game content. As early as 2018, we focused on history’s famous personalities in historical quest series and offered a variety of events throughout the year. With the updates for the Oceanic Future era and the completely new Virtual Future, we also released new content on a large scale. In 2019, we will be able to introduce elements from all eras into the game and will once again provide our players with countless hours of fun.”
Product Owner Stefan Walter added:
“The Cultural Settlements are completely optional to the main game. It’s not about building a second city long-term, but about completing special quest lines. We have introduced new mechanisms for developing a city and, for the first time, diplomacy as a new resource. We are looking forward to the player feedback, especially which cultures they would like to see in further settlements.”
