EA announces BattleForge collectible trading card game for Fall '08

EA announced today that its German studio, EA Phenomic, is working on Battleforge, a "fantasy online real-time strategy ... collectible trading card" game. The game will release this fall and allow players to win, trade and buy virtual cards to create the "ultimate deck."

Basically, it sounds like Magic: The Gathering (but totally virtual) at the moment. We'll have to wait and see what the price details are for Battleforg -- not to mention its micro transaction details, if any.
