Forge of Empires Gameplay First Impressions

Forge of Empires, the free to play browser based strategy MMO from Innogames, announced earlier today that starting March 29th the game will enter the next phase of closed beta testing. Currently the game is in an “Exclusive Preview” phase and is expected to add many new features with the upcoming Closed Beta phase. Some of these new features will be tweaks to existing features like improvements to the games battle mechanics and a messaging system for players to communicate with each other. More ambitious additions include a new trading feature that will allow players to build buildings and focus on generating just a few rare resources while trading with other players for the resources they are not producing. Innogames has also stated that more features will be added to the game throughout the Closed Beta testing phase and that players should expect to see these added regularly.

I had a chance to sit down with the Head of Public Relations from Innogames at GDC 2012 in San Francisco this year. He gave me a full walk through of all the features that were available in the games Exclusive Preview and also explained that the game would be adding additional ages to the technology tree as the testing phased progressed forward. You can watch our full first impression video below where I highlight all the features that Dennis and I spoke about in our meeting. You can register now for your chance at access to the Closed Beta testing phase by going to http://www.forgeofempires.com.

      i agree with all above who say they are frustrated with spending MANY minutes on many pages of surveys, only to be finally disqualified and awarded like 5 points. I also have MANY problems with my Poll Predictor chances i win NOT showing up on the award board (where you choose which prize you’d like.) Sometimes they show up, sometimes they don’t. It sure seems pretty rigged. Yes, i know, this is no reliable way to earn anything, but you sure would like to get something for the effort.

    I like the level of detail and social aspects included. I wonder if it has an rpg element as well in the use of “heros”, veteran troops or growth of an avatar e.g. I noticed that “rank” seems to go up with battles..also is this a total ffa environment or is there also a growth matching element in the game to keep things on a level playing field for newer players.

    I think the game was fun to play – however, even though it won’t charge you, when you have played this for 2-3 hours you will find out, that you need to buy “diamonds” (that is for your real savings). Everyone that buys diamonds, get a superior advantage, and so the balance is uneven and I really thinks it is no longer a good strategy game ..

    SUCKS! I’ve been with this game for 2 weeks now and I completely lost interest. First of all-at first it’s fun,..but as the game continues it takes longer(A LOT LONGER) to produce items that are needed to advance to the next step. Then after that’s done………it’s Takes EVEN LONGER to advance further. BLAH! Second of all they don’t give you enough land-sections to keep up with the game(UNLESS YOU PAY CASH). there’s buildings you must have in order to advance to the next stage. Continue….

    Continued….I’m at the point i need 24 wine to get a land section. 2 wines take over 8 hours………..i’m not going to wait 96 freaking hours..it’s just not worth it. The makers will never make this game fly nor,will they see any type profit. it’s to my understand they have 10 members and 200-and some visitors. 4 members quit while i was there… they were disgusted. there’s too many buildings that have to go up-to advance but, not enough land. I’ll stick with Goodgame.empire

    You need to focus on the items that you find in your conquering of the lands. Then you will get 5 of each of those every 4 hours. Then you take the stuff that you can generate at a faster pace and use the trade option to trade for the items that other people can make much more quickly. As each player gets access to different items in their world map discoveries. In the end play games that you have fun with. I am just letting you know how you don’t need to wait the time you are talking about.

    You need to join a guild and start trading there, when you conquer land you’ll get bonuses like extra wine or wood or what ever, and everyone gets different stuff so when your in a guild you can trade your stuff that you got extra production on for example wine, It’s a fun game and i have alot of fun with it, but maybe it’s not for everyone.

    I been playing for about 3 to 4 days now and this game is pretty good. I just wished their was a chat system so i can chat with people and a map where players can fights for lands, clusters, etc. I know the game is in Beta, I’m just excited and anxious to see what new things come to this game. :]

    Hope you are still enjoying this. Chat is in the upper right, just under the medals and gems, in case you haven’t found it yet.

    The first thought that came accross my mind due to this is that it is very similar to an old game called “Pharaoh” or even “Zeus: Master of Olympus”. I wonder if my nokia c5 can bear it, as I play on mobile.

    A very good game, in my opinion. Have been playing it for about 3-4 months. Very clean and impressive interface. I am not a MMORPG but this is a good’un.
