200 countries, 25 languages and over 10 million players – Our strategy game Forge of Empires inspires people around the globe. From Antarctica to Nigeria, and all the way to the tropical island of Madagascar: battles are fought, provinces conquered and cities forged.
We are thrilled about this! After we welcomed five million players after only six months, the success story of Forge of Empires still continues. Thanks a lot! We do appreciate your loyalty and enthusiasm and continue to work on developing and improving the game. Unfortunately, I can’t tell you everything, but there are so many cool features in development too, so stay tuned!
To celebrate the ten millionth player, I ventured into the depths of our players statistics and found some really interesting information about the community of Forge of Empires. The biggest surprise here was the popularity of the various language versions. I was convinced that most of Forge of Empires gamers prefer the English version, but far from it. Ranked one of the most popular servers, with 1.2 million registered players: Brazilian! English was only in second place with 1.1 million, followed by the French in third place with just over one million registrations. The five largest countries don’t seem to only be into Carnival or football, but also the expansion and development of a virtual empire seems to be a motivating hobby for many.
But that was not the only surprise for me. As already described, we have players from many different parts of the world and across all continents. I find it absolutely fascinating to know that I might just attacked by a player over twelve thousand miles away from me sitting in front of a PC at the same moment in Micronesia. Micronesia? You heard right – there is exactly one Forge of Empires player who has registered from the small island territory in the Pacific Ocean! Just incredible…
So, wherever you are and no matter which language version you play: Enjoy the game and develop your city more diligent, as the next attack will come!
