Are you Ready for Massive Multiplayer Battles?

Forge of Empires Guild vs. Guild

Forge of Empires just released its biggest update since it went online 2 years ago. With Guilds vs. Guilds, InnoGames introduced the long awaited multiplayer feature into the online game. From now on, you will have the chance to conquer several provinces and even an entire continent with your allied guild members. But beware: This time, you will not only have to mess with NPCs, but also with human opponents. In a video, our Game Designers Peer and Anwar sum up and explain the new feature.

So far, the main Features in Forge of Empires were the city-building and the single-player campaign. Those will still remain the core of the game. But we constantly received feedback asking for a better way to compete with other players. Aside from that, we wanted to strengthen cooperative multiplayer as well. With Guilds vs Guilds we found a way to achieve both at the same time. Your goal as a guild will be to conquer provinces from NPC-enemies and other guilds and defending them against your foes. Aside from lots of armies, guild also needs rare resources to successfully conquer a province.

Province Map

Therefore, peaceful traders are as crucial to your guilds’ success as aggressive warmongers. From the Iron Age on, all of the game’s Ages are present on the Map, so that players can participate and support their guild, regardless of their single-player process. Being successful grants your guild numerous rewards, for example recruitment- or research-boosts. So, what are you waiting for? Join or found a guild – a new world is ready to be discovered.
