Hamburg, 03 September 2019 – Goodgame Studios is proud to announce the prerelease of their newest medieval fantasy strategy game EMPIRE: Age of Knights. The game extends Goodgame’s hugely successful ‘EMPIRE’ brand which to date has attracted over 189 million players. EMPIRE: Age of Knights is now available for pre-registration on Android devices in preparation for global release.
In EMPIRE: Age of Knights, the player becomes a mighty knight, defending their realm against marauding orcs, while building the capabilities and prosperity of their castle. The player will have the option to unlock and explore new territories and strategically strike at enemies for reward and valour.
“We are excited to finally launch a brand new medieval EMPIRE game,” says Simon Andrews, who heads the studio responsible for the game. “Age of Knights will complement our highly successful EMPIRE and EMPIRE: Four Kingdoms games giving our players new experiences to enjoy and explore. From a completely new art style to the very unique game features we believe Age of Knights offers a very fresh approach to this well established genre”.
In EMPIRE: Age of Knights, the player can actively choose in which way he wants to play the game: cooperative and peaceful, focusing on building and trading, or competitive, focusing on fighting and growing their empire. Outside the castle, the player can discover exciting quests and challenges where he can fight off orc invaders or challenge his luck on treasure hunts.
Empire: Age of Knights is available in selected markets on Google Play and in the App Store. All other Android players have the option to pre-register on the Google Play Store.

The charity event starts today and will run for one week. It will be supported with social media activities. For more information make sure to follow https://www.facebook.com/BigfarmMobile.
