Hello Kings and Queens,

The update to 1.17 will take place on Wednesday, January 8, 2014. Recreate
the Rock 'n Roll vibe in your city as Forge of Empires grooves into the
Modern Era. Wartime upheaval brings new skills and strategies to the
battlefield, while a new refined goods system brings old goods from earlier
ages back into play.
Are you ready to take on powerful new enemies and expand your empire?
There will be a short period of downtime during the update, we apologize
for this little inconvenience.
Thank you for playing Forge of Empires.
Your Forge of Empires Team

Improvements and changes

  • It was previously possible to participate in the PvP tournaments before unlocking the tower. This is no longer the case.


  • Vehicles sometimes drove sideways after turning around corners on 2x2 roads. This behavior no longer occurs.
  • Quest slots could be overlapped by premium collection icons. This has now been fixed.
  • Using a FP package triggered a quest to buy Forge Points. This no longer occurs.
  • Some issues with accepting/cancelling friend requests have been fixed.
