Battleforge is now a Free to Play game, the retail boxes is now just a points bonus, and a disc for the game.
Here is some info about the change from the FAQ:
What exactly does BattleForge Play4Free include?
- Along with all functionality of the game, BattleForge Play4Free includes two decks consisting of 32 cards. You can play any scenario in the game, including the Renegade Campaign. With BattleForge Play4Free, you are also able to purchase Booster Pack and bid on cards in the Auction House. However, you can only offer a card in the Auction House once you have reached level 4 in PvE and level 10 in PvP. Direct trades and sending in-game mail with attachments are also blocked until you reach this experience level.
Does BattleForge Play4Free include BattleForge Points?I tried out the demo, and it was pretty fun so I'm am downloading it now to see how the free model is.
- No. BattleForge Play4Free includes all game content, but it does not include any BattleForge Points. The points you can get either by trading with other players, or you can purchase them from BattleForge.com or the EA Store.
I wonder how this will affect the Steam version of the game.
