From EA's Phenomic studioElectronic Arts has today revealed that its German-based studio is developing BattleForge, an online real-time strategy game based around trading cards.
Battleforge will be played out totally online and will be set in a fantasy universe where we'll assemble an army by winning, trading and buying collectible trading cards online.
There are very few details on the title, but we do know they'll be co-op play, tournaments, guilds, chat-rooms and a marketplace where you can buy and trade cards.
The blurb - For mortals caught in a clash between insane gods and ancient giants, standing together is the only option. Using the forces of Fire, Frost, Nature and Shadow a mysterious Forge which makes legends come to life, is their single hope to create armies powerful enough to overcome these impossible odds. It is now time to set out and reclaim an epic fantasy world which has been overthrown by sinister powers in the twilight of a dying sun.
BattleForge is expected to ship in Autumn 2008 for the PC.
