Forge of Empires: Closed Beta Will Start On The 29th Of March!

You might have already heard the good news! The Closed Beta of Forge of Empires is incredibly close: On Thursday, 29th of March, we will start providing access to not only a couple of hundred “Exclusive Preview” Players but to thousands of people wanting to help us beta test the game. To all the players: Thanks for being a part of this process so far! You were all an essential help in making Forge of Empires the best game possible, a progress that will continue over the course of the next weeks and months. For everybody, who did not have a chance to play so far and is dying to get a key: We will give them out daily on the Facebook-Pages of InnoGames and Forge of Empires!

With the start of the closed beta, Forge of Empires will also implement some fresh components. On top of improved battle mechanics and a messaging system, the new trading feature will allow you to finally exchange rare goods, like honey or gold – with NPCs as well as with other players. This allows one to focus on a limited number of various goods buildings. Additionally, InnoGames will add more features over the course of the closed beta, some of them in direct response to your feedback during the Exclusive Preview. Stay tuned for more!

    1. Closed beta means that you can only play if you have gotten a key for the game. As we are still developing the game, the closed beta will be playable by some thousand players. But when the open beta starts, all players are able to play the game!

  1. why not send keys out by email? I mean its silly to make us scrounge like animals to pick out a key. or even in some case to hangout here forever ever.

    1. “Razzzoom” Does make a vaild point! I would love the option to not having to keep checking back on this for updates, but understand if that cause difficulty.

  2. I do not understand I play from the beginning of the key typed immediately after logging and this morning I have to re-enter to login. What’s going on?

    1. I hope your problems have been resolved by now. If not, you can continue playing in the closed beta by logging into the preview (http:beta.forgeofempires.com), and a new code will be given to you via Ingame message. For everyone else trying to access the closed beta, you must register on http://www.forgeofempires.com, NOT the beta site (beta.forgeofempires.com).

    1. The Closed Beta of Forge of Empires is only available in English. But the Open Beta will be in French and other languages too!

    2. Hi, I pre-registered on january 13. Few days ago I rceeived the notification about the upcomming beta but still no key. I thought i’d get it among the first, since I’v been waiting for more than a month cheers;)

    1. Thank you for your comments. This is how it works with the keys for the closed beta: Everyone who registers at http://www.forgeofempires.com has the chance to get a key, which he would receive via the registered email address within the next days and weeks (so don’t worry, if you haven’t received one yet, you still have all chances!). Furthermore, we will also continuously give away keys via our Facebook pages. Besides that, all players who have already played the Exclusive Preview will get an in-game message when they log in on the Exclusive Preview server (beta.forgeofempires.com).

  4. Does it mean anything to have registered long before the latest release of the game in actually getting access to playing it?

    1. “Who may play the closed beta?
      -All the players who preregistered on the Closed beta, will receive a beta key at their email addresses [B]at the start of April.”(http://forum.en.forgeofempires.com/showthread.php?56-Closed-beta-FAQ)

      I have only really saw this specific detail on this page and no mention elsewhere (i have seen) but does it mean if you registered before the latest beta was released you would get a key within the next few days?

  5. So I already pre registered and typed the beta key, after a while I login again to play it again asks for the beta key. Any solutions?

  6. Why beta key’s from give away’s doesn’t work?”Sorry,the preview key you have entered is invalid” o.0?

  7. When attempting to access page 2 or to move to the end of the listing on the Bronze Age PvP Tower the page disappears from the screen thus no further action can be taken to battle with others other than on page one.

  8. One is experiencing constant system failures with the ‘sorry, internal error’ message being displayed.

    This is frustrating, annoying and detracts from the enjoyment of the game!
