Battlefield Heroes hits 1 Million registrations
Electronic Arts has announced that since its release in June more than one million players have registered for the free game Battlefield Heroes.
Battlefield Heroes is a free, web browser based multiplayer spin-off of the popular Battlefield series. Now Electronic Arts has announced that since the game has been made available in June more than one million players have registered.
A registration is needed to download the Battlefield Heroes client that is required for free playing. The action game is financed with advertisements and the selling of Battlefunds which can be used to buy special in-game content like clothing items or emotes and widgets.
From the Electronic arts press release:
"The team is really proud to have hit 1 million registrations at this early stage,” said Ben Cousins, General Manager, Battlefield Heroes Team. "Creating a character and gameplay experience that is totally yours is what sets this game apart.”
I am one of those million people that signed up for the game, but I haven't actually spent a whole lot of time playing it so far. It was fully-functioning, but at the same time, still felt a bit like a tech demo in my mind. The graphics were pretty solid and the gameplay felt right, but for me, its biggest hook is that it is both browser based and free to play. Still, it's a competitive marketplace in the multiplayer arena, and usually Battlefield Heroes isn't at the top of my head when I ask myself what I would like to play.
