The Progressive Era (often shortened into PE) is the 9th era in Forge of Empires and is preceded by the Industrial Age, and followed by the Modern Era. It includes ten provinces to conquer: Havre, Uxrow, Gaelford, Kriegreich, Omoien, Sud, Ostrand, Langenreich, Uceria, and Gorski.

This era introduces new challenges, especially in matters of urban planning, being the first in which 2x2 roads are needed in order to build and operate certain buildings.

The Progressive Era also introduces new battlefield rules when acquiring sectors by fighting. All units are ranged and the units have different strength and weakness rules when comparing to units in previous eras. In addition, there is battle scaling of which the effective movement and firing range is decreased. Trenches are introduced starting from this era.

Unlike previous ages, the defending units of the sectors will not target Rogues first. This means if the player's attacking army has Rogues in addition to regular units, the regular units will be attacked (and killed, if possible) before the rogues.

The Progressive Era is laid out to represent world history starting from late 19th century extending into World War I and ends with the beginning of the 1920s which is also referred to as the roaring twenties. This age is notable for recurring activism that encourage social justice and major reform during the early 20th century. Examples include the prohibition of alcoholic beverages, muckraking in journalism, and women's suffrage.

As indicated in the game, this age is most notable for bringing technological breakthroughs to the forefront such as the light bulb and invention of the first successful motor-powered airplane. The completion of the world's first dreadnought by the Royal Navy and the mass production of the First automobiles. There is also a great develop of communications like phones, cinema and radio.

Finally, the rising power of North America is demonstrated through great buildings such as the Alcatraz and the Château Frontenac. However , the Continent Map takes place in Europe.
