GTX 480 vs. HD 5870, 8x AA Performance Analysis, Part 3
BattleForge is an online PC game developed by EA Phenomic and published by Electronic Arts. The full game and a demo was released in March 2009. BattleForge is a card based RTS that revolves around acquiring and winning by means of micro-transactions for buying new cards. By May, 2009, BattleForge became a Play 4 Free game with fewer cards than the retail version. BattleForge supports Directx 11 with full support for hardware tessellation.
