EA Phenomic has dropped the beta key requirements for BattleForge, inviting PC gamers everywhere to get an early taste of what the card-based real-time strategy title has to offer.

Starting today, participating in the BattleForge beta is as simple as downloading the client and creating an EA account, for those of you who haven't already done so. Log in with your EA account once the game finishes patching, create a character, and start playing. As a special added bonus for trying out the game a month early, everyone who participates in the open beta receives a special upgraded Firedancer card once the game goes live on March 26th. Not being familiar with the cards and what they do, I am going to assume this is a good thing.
