Oh Hey, Battlefield Heroes Is Coming Back

Illustration for article titled Oh Hey, Battlefield Heroes Is Coming Back

Battlefield Heroes, my favourite Battlefield game, died an inglorious death when it tried to walk a free-to-play tightrope and fell clean off. It was a cool game with incredible visuals, though, so of course a group of fans have salvaged the code and brought it back.

Revive, who have already done similar work with Battlefields 2 and 2142, are putting the finishing touches on Heroes’ comeback. Here’s some footage of the game in testing:

Playing Heroes without all the F2P bullshit that killed it sounds like a real good time, so I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on this.

I’m just waiting for the inevitable return of BF to the WW2 era. BF1943 deserved a lot better.
