House Of Cards: BattleForge For Free


Someone is going to be livid. Battleforge, EA's card-trading, deck-based online RTS - which was a full-price game a couple of months ago - is now free to play. (The server is taking a pounding at the moment, and it's achingly slow.) Anyway you can now get the full game, with two full decks, and full access to all content since release, for nothing. You have to level up in both PvE and PvP before you can enter full trading stakes, but that's a whole lot of game for free. As an RTS Battleforge is slightly cumbersome, especially in PvE, but I can't fault the balance or possibilities for deck-construction. Being able to build an army with the cards you've meticulously scraped together is surprisingly rewarding. It's a genuinely interesting experiment, and I hope the move to a free-to-play model brings in a few more people who might get a kick out of that sort of thing.
