EA have revealed plans to launch a new free-to-play iteration of its celebrated Battlefield franchise, aptly titled Battlefield Play4Free.
Unlike similar release Battlefield Heroes, which was third-person and utilised cel-shaded graphics, the publisher has explained that the latest venture stays true to the "core, realistic Battlefield shooter experience."
Set to feature multiplayer battles for up to 32 players across a number of modern-day environments, gameplay seems to most closely correlate to that seen within Battlefield: Bad Company 2. Micro-transactions are to be implemented to tempt players to part with some cash.
"We broke new ground in 2009 with the launch of Battlefield Heroes; a game that has 6 million registered players worldwide. Now we are complementing that arcade shooter with a core, realistic Battlefield shooter experience that fans have been clamouring for," added senior producer, James Salt. "Battlefield Play4Free is for serious shooter fans who are looking for a premium – but free – experience that rivals top console titles."
