If you’re anything like me, you’ve somehow become addicted to collecting Steam Trading Cards. Oh boy, have I got news for you… From today, you’ll now be able to unlock Steam Trading Cards and everything associated with them (such as profile backgrounds), for Nosgoth!
For more information on Steam Trading Cards, check out this official Steam page detailing how the feature works. As Nosgoth is a free to play game, the method to collecting cards is defined by the Steam platform, and based on purchases (money spent) on the game through Steam.
Once you’re eligible you’ll receive a random Trading card in your Steam inventory. These cards can be swapped with friends, or sold on the Marketplace. Once you have collected all the cards in the series, you can then craft a Badge for the game, by clicking on the "READY" button:
After crafting a badge you’ll unlock a few goodies, including a wallpaper, XP for your Steam level, emoticons, and Steam coupons. You start with a level 1 badge, and work your way all the way up to level 5. And for the hardcore collectors, there is a foil badge, too!Trading Cards & Badges
For now, there are 10 Trading Cards in total, and 5 badges. Foil badges have only 1 level.
Once you have crafted a badge, you’ll also be able to display that proudly on your Steam profile.Profile Backgrounds
There are four profile backgrounds you can unlock by crafting badges. Profile backgrounds are applied on your Steam profile, as per the example below.Emoticons
These emoticons have also been added, and are also unlocked by crafting badges. Emoticons can be used in Steam chats with friends, or in your Steam profile!
