Dear Kings and Queens, 

A new great building has been added to the game! Alcatraz, the new Progressive
Era Great Building, was voted for by you - our players - in a recent contest.
And now you can start collecting blueprints to help you build this iconic
structure and benefit from a brand new bonus. 

The update to version 1.09 will be implemented on Sept 4th. 

Please be aware that there will be a short period of downtime during the update,
and we apologize for any inconvenience caused by this. Please see the changelog
below for a list of changes.

May your quests be victorious, your plunders be fruitful and your guild members

Thank you for supporting Forge of Empires.

The Forge of Empires team.
