While most free-to-play games are garbage, regardless of the platform, sometimes one of them sneaks past your defences and actually finds its way into your spare time. Even I, as hostile as I am to the business practice in general, have my weaknesses.
Battlefield Heroes and several other games are shutting down on July 14, according to a post by Electronic Arts. The free-to-play take on Battlefield never really caught on, and the company admits it’s “an older title that is not as popular as it once was.”
Can't it be both? Coming soon to iOS and Android, Blitz Brigade is a team-based online multiplayer shooter. It's set during World War II (can't you tell?) and features vehicular combat, five character classes, single-player challenges and trailer music that sounds like it's being performed by a Team Fortress 2 cover…
There is plenty of room in our gaming lives for more Battlefield 3, more Bad Company and many more military first-person shooters from EA, the giant game publisher's number two boss told Kotaku this week.
Ahem. Well, back in July, we were introduced to Final Combat, China's
homage to ripoff of Team Fortress 2. The game won't have a western release, but for any Chinese who managed to defeat the Baidu censorship and learn of the game's true origins, we have Troy Horton, formerly of the Tomb Raider series, to vouch for…
I will play any game that pits the forces of magic against (relatively) modern military forces. Battlefield Heroes gets wizards today. I approve.
So Final Combat, China's seemingly shameless rip-off of Team Fortress 2, isn't as shameless as we first thought. I mean, it's not entirely lifting content from Valve's shooter. It's lifting it from EA's Battlefield Heroes as well!
Whether planned retirement (or, more likely, hounded into disbanding), Lulzsec, the unlovable clowns behind hack operations against BioWare, Sony, Nintendo, EVE Online and Minecraft, ended its brief reign of semi-terror today with its final dump of stolen data, highlighted by 550,000 user names and passwords for the …
EA's free-to-play online Battlefield Heroes game is filled with players running about in ridiculous outfits they've cobbled together out of scraps. Nothing a healthy injection of Dead Space 2 shouldn't cure.
A few years back, it seemed in-game advertising was going to ruin everything. That...hasn't really happened, with EA saying that the business has been eclipsed by one more lucrative for publishers.
It's December! And the holiday season is kicking into high gear, and Battlefield Heroes is getting all festive.
Most of the very best games on the PC need you to cough up at least a little cash, but if you absolutely must game for nothing, then let us show you how it's done.
Bang bang! Game publishers Electronic Arts is rolling out "Gun Club", a rewards program that gives players benefits for doing what they love best: shooting people.
Battlefield Heroes, the zany, free-to-play combat game from EA DICE has a new map, a new game mode to play on it, and jet packs to get you around it.
Electronic Arts tells Kotaku that while they're exploring different downloadable game strategies, they do not plan to charge gamers for "traditionally free game demos."
With public interest in free-to-play shooter Battlefield Heroes at critical levels following EA's controversial changes to the game's pay structure, the publisher is trying to light a fire under the game with a Battlefield Bad Company crossover.
When night falls in the free-to-play shooter Battlefield Heroes, out come the creatures of the night with the addition of new vampires and werewolves to the web-based multiplayer shooter.
Starting this week, specially marked 20 ounce bottles of Dr Pepper will contain codes good towards exclusive downloadable content for popular EA games, including The Sims 3, Spore, and Mass Effect 2.I predict we're going to all be completely sick of Dr Pepper by the time this promotion ends.
