Event Forge 12th Anniversary Event 2024


Community Manager


On Beta from February 22nd to March 14th.​

Happy birthday to us! This year, we continue building up on last year's theme of researching mysterious Gems, Keys, and Chests of unknown origin. You are cordially invited to assist a scientific team in discovering the secrets behind these artifacts. Be prepared for brand new discoveries, for instance...

New boosters​

Prismatic Essence to transform colored Gems into colorless ones that can merge with any color! Gem Pickaxe to break down big pieces into smaller ones and boost your chances! Gem Mines Booster to generate a new Gem without spending any Energy!

New buildings​

From the futuristic Metro Station to a majestic Ethereal Airship, this year's Anniversary Event will offer an abundance of rewards. Visit our Knowledgebase for the Event Overview and make sure to check all linked pages for a deep dive into Event rewards and mechanics! Put on your thinking cap for the 12th Forge Anniversary Event!

Of course we want to hear your feedback here!

Sincerely, Your Forge of Empires Team

App players will be able to play the event once they have version 1.276 or higher installed.

Hello, scientists! We want to announce some changes we did to the Anniversary Event after the beta test ended. Most of those changes are related to the Rival Challenges.

- All Rival Quests are now easier to solve
- We added several non-event related tasks to the Rival Quests
- The received rewards in the Rival Challenges have been reduced and some rewards have been removed
- We removed one Upgrade Kit from the Milestone rewards. You now require more Energy to get the full Metro Station

We believe that those changes will make the Event more enjoyable for everyone and we of course want to hear your thoughts on those changes in the feedback thread!
