Turturret : the new unit of the Oceanic Future!

Hi guys!

Today we will look at the new unit of the Oceanic Future. This units of artillery type are very appreciated by all of you (like the rail gun isn’t it?) and rightly because they are powerful units that are very effective on the battlefield. And those Turturrets are incredible!

You will love to use them in combat. Their special ability: mortar, is a new ability that makes its appearance in the game. Turturret shots will also cause 50% damage to the units within a tile/tiles range around the target unit! Amazing right?

Tell us in comments what do you think about this new unit.

Behind the scenes of the Forge of Empires Wiki!



Some of you have been waiting for it, and it is finally coming! Your Forge of Empires teams are working hard to cook up a wiki worthy of the name. Here are 10 questions that you might ask yourself:

  1. What is the point of having a wiki?

You have probably noticed that it is not easy for a novice player to find their needed information amongst the many guides that can be found in the Forge of Empires forums. The wiki will have the merit of centralizing all information and guides related to the game. The navigation will be simplified through the various categories and links which will allow you to quickly find specific information.

You’ve decided! Château Frontenac and Alcatraz will be the next Great Buildings in Forge of Empires

What a run onto our Forge of Empires Forum and the Facebook-page. Recently we asked you to send us suggestions for Great Buildings in the next Age of Forge of Empires. Thousands of names and pictures were sent to us, and we were really amazed by your dedication. After looking through your ideas, our team had the difficult task of choosing six buildings out of the mass of great suggestions. After all, we wanted you to be the ones that decide on which buildings will make it into the game in the end. Hours of discussions followed, but in the end we decided to put those buildings up for the vote:

Royal Holloway, University of London
Château Frontenac, Québec
Teatro Amazonas, Manaus
Alcatraz, San Francisco
Palmenhaus, Wien-Schönbrunn
Monumento Vittorio Emanuele II, Rom

In our Facebook-gallery you were able to give us your vote for the final decision. And we did not expect what happened then: in a short amount of time, almost 10.000 votes had been cast, and every single building was subject to heated arguments.  Thanks a lot to everyone who participated. It’s always great to have a community that’s so passionate about our game and it’s future development. And now I have the honor of presenting the victorious buildings:

with roughly 2400 votes, our winner is the marvellous Château Frontenac from Quebec!

Runner-up with 1.800 votes is the world-famous Alcatraz from San Francisco!
