I never got into Battlefield, ever, but for some reason, Battlefield Heroes looks like a blast. Must be the Nazis in shorts. Anyway, it's been a while coming, but should now be "out" this summer.

While various closed betas have been kicking around for months now, the "open beta" - in other words the release of the game - will begin "this summer", according to Electronic Arts.

So if you've been hangin' out to pilot a cartoon spitfire with a guy who has a handlebar moustache and a peg-leg, you've only got a few months left to wait.
