InnoGames has started the open beta of its strategic browser MMO Forge of Empires.

The German beta will begin on April 19; other language versions, including French, Dutch and Polish will soon follow. The team's high expectations of Forge of Empires' closed beta were exceeded by the overwhelmingly positive response from preview testers and media alike.

Forge of Empires is a browser-based strategy game that allows players to create their own city and accompany it from the Stone Age onward throughout the centuries. Players can research new technologies, build impressive historical buildings and enlarge their sphere of influence through military campaigns and skillful dealing. On top of this, one must foster a healthy culture for citizens and establish trade and production of various resources.

Besides an ever-growing number of PvP-elements, Forge of Empires contains a long-term single player campaign which offers months of entertainment. A turn-based battle system on a hex-field and other tactical facets to the game will keep strategists challenged and a unique research tree enhances player control in the title. InnoGames provides additional information in the game's blog.
