For anyone out there who’s been waiting to jump into Phenomic’s BattleForge until the price was just right (i.e. free), it’s time to reap the benefits of your patience and frugality.
EA has announced that anyone looking to forge some battles, RTS-style, can now download the Play 4 Free version of the game, which includes the full game, all the community features, the add-on Renegade campaign and 32 of 200 trading cards, all for the low, low price of zero bucks.
Of course, if you’d rather ruin a good thing and spend $30 for the luxury of choosing your in-game cards, then you can always pick up the retail copy of the game, which comes with 3000 BattleForge points that can be used to buy whatever cards you want. Also, if you download the game, you won't be able offer cards in the Auction House, make direct trades or send in-game mail with attachments until level four in PvE and level 10 in PvP. But that's a small price to pay for no price at all.
Anyone planning on taking BattleForge for a spin now that it's free?
