EA announced free-to-play Battlefield game

New game a more serious experience

EA dropped a big bomb on the online shooter market by announcing a new free-to-play Battlefield title.

Battlefield Play4Free will offer a much more serious experience than the already-successful Battlefield: Heroes.

It will bring the intense FPS online action that the Battlefield series is known for to a free-to-play model building on the success of BF: Heroes.

Senior producer for the game James Salt said: "We broke new ground in 2009 with the launch of Battlefield Heroes; a game that has 6M registered players worldwide. Now we are complementing that arcade shooter with a core, realistic Battlefield shooter experience that fans have been clamouring for. Battlefield Play4Free is for serious shooter fans who are looking for a premium - but free - experience that rivals top console titles."

Battlefield Play4Free will launch in spring 2011 for browsers with a beta test phase beginning on November the 30th. To register visit the Battlefield Play4Free official site.
