Introducing Battlefield Heroes - Play 4 Free Game from Electronic Arts

At the Digital, Life, Design Conference (DLD) in Munich, Electronic Arts announced it will be releasing an all-new free Battlefield Heroes shooter. Battlefield Heroes is a brand new Play 4 Free game from the people that brought you the multi-million selling Battlefield 1942 and Battlefield 2. It will be a fun cartoon-style shooter which caters to players of all skill levels – easy to pick up and play, but with deep character development. Aimed at the mass market, the game will offer a downloadable client, lots of character customization and hours of shooting madness.
With the new online model we will continually add new content to keep the game fresh and keep players engaged, while integrating player feedback in real time. As a game developer, it is such a cool new way to make games.
said Ben Cousins, Senior Producer at DICE, an EA company, that is behind this new project. Battlefield Heroes will be released for the PC as a free download in Summer 2008. Head over to the Battlefield Heroes site to keep up to date with its progress.Source: Battlefield Heroes, Eurogamer

It appears to be like TF2. What concerns me is the micro transactions. Some of us from the BF2 genre remember the sink caused by the Special Forces edition which added a few more weapons giving some what of an advantage (flash bang in particular). In any case I also made mention of it here a little while ago.

So now I know what happened to the BF2142 updates last year. They were makin this and Bad Company :/

Kinda doubt that free part, there is usually too much information asked before download or you'll get ads before level loads. I'll wait for the first video :)

good positive move by EA, no doubt this will be funded by in game advertising which is perfectly fine for a free game, i for one are looking forward to it!

Oh god, this is horrible. Not cartoons and in-game purchases. This will be the end of battlefield as we know it. I hope to God this is not the placeholder for Battlefield 3.

Remember, it is EA, so there will probably be spyware, bloatware and addware included for free along with this game.

Ya know Iv seen it spelled both ways but the meaning is the same. Sick Japanese cartoon porn. Point is not all cartoons=Kids. Ever seen Heavy Metal or Wizards? Now if they made an FPS based off of Wizards with a Led Zeppelin sound track you can count me in! :rockout:

The young guys wont get that but the old fogies will.

you should see the anime narutaru (known as a CARTOON shadow star in the USA)

I just watched it, and while the first say, 5 eps (of 13) are similar to pokemon, the latter episodes have a ton of violence and sexual (rape) references... from pokemon like critters. Cartoons can disturb adults, let alone children.

yes they can like the critter christmas ep of south park it is fucked up but i laughed my ass off, although if you put violence in cartoon form then it plays down the fact that people, cell shaded people at that, get blown to bits and then because they're cartoons and are not perceived as people
