EA Offering Free-To-Play Version Of Battlefield

Electronic Arts this week announced a new free-to-play version of the company's popular Battlefield series. Battlefield Play4Free, slated to hit the PC in Spring 2011, will offer gamers a chance to play a simplified version of the game.

"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 clamoring for," said James Salt, Senior Producer, Battlefield Play4Free. "Battlefield Play4Free is for serious shooter fans who are looking for a premium--but free--experience that rivals top console titles."

Combining the most popular maps from Battlefield 2 with the familiar classes and powerful weapons of Battlefield: Bad Company 2, players have access to 16 vehicles including the Mil Mi-28 attack helicopter, its nemesis the F35 VTOL jet fighter, the massive Russian T-90 main battle tank, and the hard to catch LSV light strike vehicle. Players progress through the game to learn new combat skills, and earn in-game currency to spend on a massive array of devastating weapons and equipment.

The game goes live in spring 2011. Players who wish to get in the game sooner can register today for the closed beta at the Official Website which launches on Nov 30.
