Battleforge Soon To Be No More

By Jim Rossignol on September 9th, 2013.


I rather enjoyed deck-based RTS Battleforge, but – I suppose, given today’s news, like most people – I didn’t spend much time with after those early weeks. I have to say I’d all but forgotten about it until I heard the news that it’s being shut down: “The decision to retire older games is never easy. We hope you’ve enjoyed playing BattleForge as much as we enjoyed making it and we wish to extend our sincerest thanks to all of our passionate and dedicated players for supporting BattleForge over the past 4 years. Those of you who still have a balance of in-game currency are encouraged to spend it before the game is shut down on October 31st and is no longer available for play.”

Seems it was so destined, but :(

Command & Conquer: Tiberium Alliances Is Playable Now

By Jim Rossignol on March 15th, 2012.


Electronic Arts send word that their browser-based spin-off from the C&C series, Command & Conquer: Tiberium Alliances, has entered playable beta. Phenomic, who did EA’s other F2P (EA cleverly called it Play4Free) titles, BattleForge and Lords of Ultima, are behind the project, which allows players to play old school C&C action in the browser, and work together to capture territory on some kind of global map. The beta only has GDI for now, but you can still harvest some Tiberium and poke about in the game’s surprisingly complicated interface.

Trailer beloooow.

Browse’n'Bash: C&C Tiberium Alliances

By Alec Meer on December 14th, 2011.

Update: we now also know that this will indeed be free to play, and that the beta kicks off tomorrow.

Oho, looks as though we’re actually getting two new Command & Conquer games. We know about the Frostbyte-powered, militaristic Generals 2, but the Tiberium universe yet lives too. Command & Conquer: Tiberium Alliances is a browser-based, HTML 5-powered “epic strategy MMO” which “allows players to experience C&C in a brand new way.” Primarily by being able to access it from most any browser – they seem to be thinking about mobile devices here too. The MMO bit revolves around playing with or against your friends and forming alliances on a “dynamically updating map”. Despite all this new-fangled newness, the brief website maintains this is “hardcore strategy.” On dev duties are Battleforge chaps Phenomic.

There’ll be a closed beta soon, though the URL for it is deaded. Now working. Gogogo!
