The Modern Era (often shortened into ME) is the 10th era in Forge of Empires. It is preceded by the Progressive Era, and followed by the Postmodern Era.

This era introduces new challenges, especially in matters of goods production, being the first in which goods of a previous era (in this case, the Colonial Age) are needed in order to produce refined ME goods.

Trivia

This era sees radical change in society with the retro look and occurs during World War 2 and early cold war scenario of the Korean wars. This era also deals with the enormity of American influence. This parallels the Iron Age, whose buildings and quest line closely mirrored Roman developments. The Modern Era is the first of the eras which are heavily influenced by the culture and developments of the United States.
