Battleforge Soon To Be No More

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…

Battleforge Expansion Now Forged

Battleforge, you might remember, is a "deck" based RTS, in which you play a pre-selection of units against your opponents. It went free-to-play a couple of months after launch and is now supported by people purchasing the expansion card decks. The Lost Souls expansion, which arrived last week, contains two new factions, which in turn delivers 120 new cards to your deck, adding 28 new…

The game feels well-engineered if a little lacking in tactical flare in the campaign mode. But…

Blimey, It’s The: Battleforge Open Beta

The open beta of EA's card-trading fantasy RTS is now awake and ready for you, with all units - including the special retail purchase ones - available to all gamers who participate. Battleforge had been completely off my radar until yesterday and I have to say I'm unexpectedly impressed. The card-deck idea is indeed compelling, and - from some brief early impressions - it's looking…

Hey, Big Fella: Battleforge

There I was, idly clicking links in search of post-worthy news, and I stumble across Battleforge. "Collectable card game-based RTS?", I think. "That's either some half-mad Russian thing, potentially an out-of-the-blue triumph like Armageddon Empires, or another low-budget curio like Saga Online." Then I thought about how my hand hurt as a result of brushing against a two foot-tall stinging nettle during a futile attempt…
