Trivia

BioForge Plus

Origin started work on a special edition of BioForge, entitled BioForge Plus. This new version of the game had extra sections, continuing on from where the original version left off. This is the description from the Origin catalog:

The work of research archaeologists has been interrupted by the machinations of the scheming scientist who plans to use the advanced alien technology for his own ends. Only your advanced skills give you hope of survival.

As the moon, Daedalus, explodes, you discover the Black Raven - a ship sent by the Ministry of Security to spy on the Mondite base. It's going to be that kind of day - it's a good thing you're still angry. The adventure is far from over.

Features:
  • Automatic Tracker - shows locations of most enemy lifeforms
  • Better Energy Source
  • More Powerful Weapons
  • Improved Combat
  • New, Superior Ship
  • Gauntlet Feature
Unfortunately, BioForge didn't sell as well as EA wanted, so BioForge Plus was cancelled.

Identity

The game's manual came with a dossier of several registered "patients" and the player is offered a chance near the end of the game to access the main medical computer to find out who they actually are. It is said that this depends on how the game was played.
