Following a little tease from EA yesterday, the company has officially announced the next title in the Battlefield franchise, Battlefield Play4Free.
The title will follow-on from Battlefield Heroes, but it will return to the franchise's roots and provide a much more realistic approach. It will use much of the same source material as Battlefield 2 and classes/weapons from Battlefield: Bad Company 2.
"Battlefield Play4Free is for serious shooter fans who are looking for a premium - but free - experience that rivals top console titles," said James Salt, senior producer on Battlefield Play4Free.
The game will go live in Spring 2011 and on the website, you're currently able to register for the closed beta.
