A Wicked Month of Mischief: Forge of Empires Releases New Era and Halloween Event
– Celebrate the eerie holiday with special quests, exclusive rewards and the rise of a new age –
Forge of Empires gets into the trick-or-treating spirit this month with two weeks full of spooky rhyming and a much anticipated treat: the release of the New Contemporary Era. Players will have the opportunity to experience a new generation of city building from today while the game’s Halloween Event opens its creaky doors from October 22 to November 5.
The Contemporary Era introduces players to a range of buildings with a modern Asian theme. Players will see their cities burst into life and bloom with detail as they expand. At least one building in every category has a canal in keeping with the theme. Players can also look forward to military buildings to boost their army and a new desert-inspired continent map. This addition will introduce new units and new province leaders. In the following video, Game Designer Peer outlines the features.
During the supernatural Halloween Event, players will have the chance to complete special quests in the form of riddles. Jack O’Lantern, the quest master, will reward players’ efforts with awards, such as two new portraits or a new building. In the spirit of Halloween, for the first time a haunted house will be available as a final reward. Players will also have the option to acquire or upgrade graveyards.
Forge of Empires is a browser-based strategy game in which players, tasked with leading a city to prosperity, can research new technologies, build impressive historical buildings and enlarge their sphere of influence through military campaigns and skilful dealing. The game was recently awarded the title of “Best Browser Game 2013” at the German Computer Game Award (Deutscher Computerspielpreis). In addition to the browser version, a full app for iOS and Android devices is coming soon.
