New Cultural Settlement: Polynesia

Hello Travelers!

Are you set for an adventurous journey to the enchanting lands of Polynesia? Dive into the world of this beautiful island where you help Kamehameha I to build a new, blossoming colony and reel in some spectacular rewards along the way.

The new Polynesian Settlement will be available on March, 27th.

To embark on this thrilling endeavor, first, make your way through the technology Signposting in the High Middle Ages. With this unlocked, the Polynesian settlement awaits your expertise from the selection screen, provided you're all clear with no ongoing settlements.

Commencing your journey in Polynesia introduces you to Kamehameha I, who is laden with quests for you. These missions are your key to inspiring a grand celebration among the island's inhabitants.

Successfully completing these quests not only advances your Embassy but also unveils exotic cultural buildings for your colony.

What's New?
No Roads
The intrigue of the Polynesian settlement lies in its unique approach to urban planning - there's no need for street connections for the cultural edifices. In fact, streets are off the table completely. This gives you the creative freedom to design your island paradise without constraints!

New Production Times
The Polynesian Settlement has different production times for their cultural ​buildings, that you may used ​to from other settlements.

The new times are as follows:
  • Instead of 4h, 8h and 24h Cultural Goods productions now are 5h, 10h and 20h.
  • Instead of 4h, 8h and 24h Cultural Diplomacy productions now are 5h, 10h and 20h.

The Rewards
But what's an adventure without rewards? The Polynesian settlement doesn't just offer a serene island getaway vibe; it's also lined with enticing rewards!

Progress through the settlement to secure the Hut of the Sacred Instruments. This marvel, escalating through 9 levels, not only bolsters your attacking army with formidable attack and defense boosts but also showers you with Forge Points, previous age goods, medals, and assorted units.

Cultural Settlement Changes
With the introduction of the new Settlement, the previously announced updates to the Cultural Settlement buildings and Emissaries will also be implemented. If you have previously acquired buildings and Emissaries from past Settlements, they will be automatically updated to the latest version.

For those who earned these rewards in the past but have since sold or deleted their Cultural buildings, and have not reached out to our support team for restoration, there's no need to worry. You will find these buildings back in your inventory, as we have reinstated them for everyone who had deleted theirs.

The full announcement of these changes can also be found here: Get Ready for Epic Adventures in Polynesia & Enhanced Cultural Settlements!

However, our work doesn't stop here. More changes to the Cultural Settlements are on the horizon, so stay tuned for more information coming soon!

We hope your journey to this serene island is both enriching and enjoyable. If this journey captivated you, join our vibrant Discord community to exchange strategies and stories with fellow explorers!

Happy building, Forge Fans!
