[GC 2015] The Future of Forge of Empires
For anyone unfamiliar with the game it is a traditional strategy/ city building MMO where players need to gather resources, construct buildings, raise armies and then ultimately ally, trade and fight with other players. The game itself sees players civilizations advance through various eras, with the new “Future” era being on the horizon. Having a quick look over the game on the tablet version it looks pretty great, the colours and general vibe of the city layout shows huge sprawling eutopian style buildings that very much step away from the browns and golds we’ve seen of previous eras and have a very lush graphical style.
The Future era will be the fourteenth and final age in the game and we’ll be expecting to see it within the next month or two as it’s still in development; as it stands we were told there’s around 2.5 years’ worth of content in the game already. However, what happens next?
Interestingly, speaking to Zito he postured the idea of a Colonization expansion for players to start their own second city, whilst none of this is official or in any detailed development, it’s one of the big ideas that is being knocked around by the team (they need to keep those 60 people busy with something!) though right now it’s something that they’re just experimenting with. Aside from that, and seemingly more convinced that it is something that will definitely be in the game, was the talk of multiplayer and Guild Cities, something that the community seems to want and will definitely add a stronger social aspect to the game, where players are able to work together and collectively build up a city, though there were no definitive details at this stage.
