Forgotten Empires 2.0 is ready for download. This release comes with a lot of new stuff and many balance tweaks and bug fixes! Here's an overview of the most notable changes:

Expanded Language Support

Forgotten Empires 2.0 is supporting an imposing sum of eight different languages. Visit the official web page to pick your favourite out of Chinese Traditional, Chinese Simplified, Spanish, German, French, Russian and Italian. The installation process is very quick and simple. Moreover, it is very likely that further language files will be published in the future!

Massive Maximum Population Limit

Thanks to the accomplishments of the UserPatch 1.1, Forgotten Empires 2.0 enables you to boost the population limit up to 1000 units per player. The battlefield can get very crowded, especially in teamgames, so take care!
