Phenomic’s Epic RTS BattleForge Expands with the BattleForge Lost Souls Edition
Players Worldwide Gain Access to 120 New Cards
Phenomic announced today the release of the BattleForge Lost Souls Edition card set for the BattleForge, the studio’s premiere real-time strategy (RTS) game. Players will now have access to legendary units and monumental buildings from the ranks of former enemies Lost Souls and the Twilight factions, with an additional 120 cards available through “Lost Souls Booster Packs” in the in-game store.
The Battleforge community has participated in over 15 million matches to date, and have access to an unparalleled pool of 440 cards available for play. With the launch of BattleForge Lost Souls Edition, BattleForge also expands its concept of dual orbs and affinities by adding Frost & Shadow, as well as Fire & Nature combinations, and increases the tactical choices for the player even further.
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 & Conquer 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 Lost Souls Booster Packs are available at the in-game store and can be purchased for 250 BattleForge points or $2.50 (USD).
