Dear Kings and Queens, The update to version 1.08 will be implemented on Wednesday, August 21st. This update consists mostly of bugfixing, with some small improvements - notably to the Progressive Era battle map - while the game developers are hard at work preparing new features for the future. Please be aware that there will be a short period of downtime during the update, and we apologize for any inconvenience caused by this. Please see the changelog below for a list of changes. May your quests be victorious, your plunders be fruitful and your guild members loyal! Thank you for supporting Forge of Empires. Sincerely, The Forge of Empires team.
