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
