Today, Phenomic announced that the play4free Real-Time Strategy (RTS) game, BattleForge Renegade Edition card set is now live. Players now have access to legendary units and monumental buildings from the Southern Wastes region of Nyn with over 60 additional cards now available through "Renegade Booster Packs" in the in-game store.
Two new support factions have been unleashed on the Battleforge universe, the Bandits and Stonekin, along with a host of new, innovative legendary creatures. With over 60 new units and buildings added to the BattleForge card pool, players will now be able to build a more diverse offensive strike or counter with new defensive strategies against rival players. BattleForge has also added dual orb cards with special affinities that will deepen and enrich the strategic possibilities for the players' decks and combat.
BattleForge is a Play4Free game that combines strategy, fantasy, trading cards and magical spells in a dynamic online environment. Combining the strategic, real-time gameplay of classics such as Command & ConquerTM with a fully enabled, online collectible community, BattleForge pioneers strategy gaming with its online multiplayer design and community features set. The collectible cards in the game are the tools of war -- each representing a spell, unit or building that is conjured directly onto the battlefield real time in stunning 3D graphics. BattleForge features single-player scenarios and cooperative scenarios supporting 2-12 players, as well as Player vs. Player (PvP) ranked and unranked duels. With co-op play, chat rooms, and a robust marketplace featuring direct trade, an auction hall and in-game mail, BattleForge is the first RTS to combine the social and community aspects of an MMO with an exciting RTS.
The new BattleForge Renegade Booster Packs are now available at the in-game store and can be purchased for 250 BattleForge points or $2.50. To download the Play4Free version of BattleForge or to get BattleForge points, players can visit www.battleforge.com and click Play Now. Players can also follow the game on Twitter at @battleforge. BattleForge is available exclusively for the PC. There is no subscription fee. Developed at Phenomic Studio, BattleForge has been rated "T" for Teen by the ESRB and 12+ for PEGI.
