EA announced that Phenomic, the team behind BattleForge, is giving away in-game and remixed music for free in a track pack called MetalForge Bonus Trax Pack. The music in this RTS trading card game adds to the gameplay experience with its epic score and grandiose instrumentation. Phenomic teamed up with the Dynamedion Music Group, a 40-piece orchestra, to give each faction its own unique sound – fire, frost, nature, and shadow. The MetalForge Bonus Trax Pack includes three tracks called, “Giantsbane”, “Viridia’s Demise” and “MetalForge” – which are available now for free at www.battleforge.com for a limited time. To accompany the MetaForge music giveaway, players can also download a special behind-the-scenes trailer that captures the making of the BattleForge soundtrack. The full BattleForge soundtrack is available for purchase at www.ea.com/eatrax and other digital music retailers.
BattleForge combines strategy, fantasy, trading cards and magical spells in a dynamic online environment. The game gives players use of virtual trading cards to build the perfect army and lay waste to their foes. Combining the strategic, real-time gameplay of classics such as Command &ConquerTM with a fully enabled, online collectible community, BattleForge is a breath of fresh air in the strategy genre. With an all-new style of play that is more accessible for casual gamers, BattleForge still offers the depth of gameplay that more sophisticated RTS players seek. The collectable cards are the tools of war -- each representing a spell, building or unit that is conjured directly onto the battlefield.
BattleForge features single-player and cooperative scenarios, as well as Player vs. Player (PvP) ranked and unranked duels. With co-op play, guilds, 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. Let the battles begin!
BattleForge ships March 24th, 2009 for the PC. Sign up for the Beta at www.BattleForgeCardHunt.com. For more information visit www.battleforge.com.
