EA is attempting to do what Ubisoft did last September, release games for free with advertising. Only difference is that it’s a new game called Battlefield Heroes, and it’s not Ubisoft. The game is primarily online play with matchmaking. Battlefield Heroes looks a lot like Team Fortress 2 in graphics style. But then being a cheap game, did you expect Crysis graphics?
The game also supports “micro-transitions”. In other words, you will have to pay for cool weapons and other addons for the game. Clever…
For now, that’s all we know. EA isn’t telling anyone but the Games For Windows magazine any more details. Battlefield Heroes should release sometime this Summer.
