Forge of Empires is a browser-based strategy game that lets you create your own city and accompany it from the beginning of the Stone Age onward throughout the centuries.

In Forge Of Empires players will have the chance to build and lead an entire empire through the centuries and write the history of mankind. Build structures typical of the epoch. Enlarge your sphere of influence through military campaigns and skillful dealings. With a powerful army and the right tactics, you will subjugate your enemies and forge a vast empire.

The core of the game is to construct an impressive city, but in order to build their empire, players must enlarge their sphere of influence by conquering surrounding provinces. These battles provide countless opportunities to fight adversaries on the battlefield and develop clever tactics to emerge victorious.

Battles in Forge of Empires take place on a Hex field which allows for a number of tactical tricks and options. Every side assembles an army comprised of different types of units with individual strengths and skills. The unit’s special abilities, along with the turn-based system and variation in terrain allow for an immense tactical depth. As the players’ city evolves, battle evolves with it: throughout the centuries new types of units arise, from basic stone-throwing slingers to sophisticated and deadly war machinery.
