New Free-to-Play Battlefield Game Announced
By: HoriZon

For those who like the idea of playing Battlefield for free but are turned off by Battlefield Heroes, EA has revealed that the new, unannounced Battlefield game teased earlier this week is a free-to-play PC shooter drawing from BF2 and Battlefield: BC 2.

EA explains that the horrendously-named Battlefield Play4Free combines 'the most popular maps from Battlefield 2 with the familiar classes and powerful weapons of Battlefield: Bad Company.' It's developed by EA's Easy studio, who were responsible the cartoony F2P offering Battlefield Heroes.

Player progression comes through learning new combat skills and earning in-game currency to spend on "a massive array of devastating weapons and equipment." You'll also be able to spend real money on them but hopefully it won't follow Heroes lead, where prices were raised until many felt players had to pay to compete.

Battlefield Play4Free is due to launch in 2011. If you fancy playing in a closed beta from November 30, sign up at the official site.
