Galata Tower Changes


Inhouse Community Manager

Dear Kings & Queens,

Last year we brought the Galata Tower to Forge of Empires, a new Great Building that makes it easier to protect yourself against external threats that often plunder your cities. This Great building has a passive boost that provides you with a certain chance to repel a plundering attempt.

The Galata Tower will be maintained in the game, but a few changes will be made. Previously, it was possible to obtain all blueprints for the Galata Tower through a specific questline, and to place this building it wouldn’t be necessary to spend any of your city goods. First, this questline is going to be removed from the game. For those who still have this questline in progress, it will be possible to complete it. However, for those who do not have it, this questline will simply not appear anymore.

The Galata Tower's Great Building (3x3)

With this change, the Galata Tower will become an Early Middle Ages’ regular Great Building, meaning that it will be possible for you to obtain it just like any other Great Building. In addition, it will be necessary to use your goods to build it up from now on.

This "new" Galata Tower will be introduced in the game on February 22nd – 2021, and for those players who already have this Great Building, it will simply be replaced by the new one (both its name and design will not be changed).

Last but not least, please keep in mind that with this change, the Galata Tower will become an Early Middle Ages’ Great Building, which means that all the contributions to evolve it will generate less Forge Points rewards to donators, as otherwise the Galata Tower would behave adversely from other Great Buildings.

Should you have any comments, questions or issues, please let us know! We're very much looking forward to your feedback!

Thank you for playing Forge of Empires!
