The ball must roll: Forge of Empires kicks off the Soccer Cup 2020

InnoGames, Germany's leading developer and publisher of online and mobile games, today announces the start of the Soccer Cup in the successful strategy game Forge of Empires. Starting on June 23, 2020, players must give their best to get their team through the tournament and win great prizes in the process. The event runs until July 13, 2020. 

In the training and tournament arena, players must decide how to pass the ball across the field to finally reach the goal of the opposing team. Each pass offers a different selection of rewards, such as various daily prizes or player cards. Each pass also brings players one step closer to the coveted goal reward. Additionally, players fight their way up the rankings to win more coveted prizes. 

All mechanics of the event are explained in the following video:  

As a highlight this year, there will also be two expandable main buildings, the Hippodrome-Sphendone and the Hippodrome-Carceres. Players can add an unlimited number of hippodrome tracks, giving both buildings additional bonuses. There are three types of Hippodrome tracks: The Leukoi Track, which adds additional Forge points, the Rousioi Track, which provides additional defense bonuses for the attacking army, and the Venetoi Track, which provides additional goods.  

The Hall of Fame was also redesigned. Both the Hall of Fame and the Winners’ Plaza have also been given a second level. Players can upgrade the first-level buildings with the appropriate upgrade kits. 

Players can also show their progress to their friends and neighbors by winning one of three soccer-themed player portraits. Two of them can be won by completing the quest series, one as a prize in the Gold League. 

Forge of Empires is free to play and available for the browser and mobile for Android and iOS devices.
