EA Announces Battlefield Heroes... It' s Free! - Jan 22, 2008 04:39
Yep, that' s right. Free and EA in the same sentence.

EA Reveals Cartoony, Free To Play Battlefield Heroes

Big news from the Digital Life, Digital Design Conference in Munich today, as EA reveals the latest game in their online warfare series - Battlefield Heroes. Abandoning the series' ' knack for processor-heavy realistic graphics, this new title features a cartoony look akin to Valve' s Team Fortress 2, perfect for fast-action and accessible to a much wider audience. On top of the change in graphical direction, the game also features an all-new price point for an EA PC title: free.

That' s right. EA is taking a stab at the free to play pricing structure, delivering the game to anyone with the bandwidth to pull it down this summer at no charge whatsoever. Revenue comes in the way of in-game advertising as well as microtransactions, though the exact nature of said microtransactions hasn' t quite been fleshed out yet. Hopefully you won' t have to buy bullets.
