Just as the celebrations for Forge of Empires first birthday ended, the next update is coming up. Version 1.01 brings you a bunch of improvements and minor bug killings by our fellow devs. But first things first: As you have noticed, many buildings and factories in Forge of Empires have got smoking chimneys. This is especially happening in the Industrial Age, for obvious reasons. Some of you told us that the smoke graphics cause problems on your computers, though. That’s why our developers had a look at it. With version 1.01, you can now decide for yourself, whether you want to activate the smoke or just keep the virtual air fresh and clean. Just check the option in the game settings menu. Another change applies for the after battle reports: The unit tool tips are now also displayed in this view. This helps you to check out the pros and cons of each unit and to prepare for the next battle.
Besides that, if you are going to choose your game world, you can now also see tool tips which explain the general world system for beginners.
To improve the gaming experience even more, the new update also eliminates some minor quest and translation bugs. As you can see: even though we had some quite eventful weeks after winning the German Computer Game Award and the celebrations around the first birthday, the development team continues to work vigorously at the game and I can promise you that even more fantastic features are already waiting for you! Have fun with the new update and see you on the battlefield!
