Battlefield Heroes

Battlefield Heroes is a free to play, cartoon-style online action game developed by Easy Studios and published by EA for Microsoft Windows.

It is played from a third-person perspective. The game is less demanding on computer specifications than the previous games of the series to increase the audience base. In addition, the game matches players of similar levels together for fairer play.

Battlefield Heroes features a modified conquest mode providing each team 50 lives and eventually one flag at the start of the round. Killing enemies and holding more flags than the opposing army will progressively reduce their number of lives. The game also features matchmaking, to keep players of the same level together.

The two armies are called the National Army (possessing a red base color flag) and the Royal Army (possessing a blue base color flag). The game is third-person only at this point, but senior producer Ben Cousins has stated if first-person is really wanted, it may be added in at a later date.

Spawn times are 5 seconds (compared to the 15 seconds of previous Battlefield games, except for the map “Midnight Mayhem.”), allowing for less waiting and more action. Players do not pick spawn points since the game has an “Intelligent Spawn System” putting players closest to the nearest battle. Sometimes the player will be parachuted behind enemy lines. There is also a new mode called “Conquest V2.” The goal of this mode is to take hold of a rocket for 5 minutes. This doesn’t mean at once, it just means 5 minutes in total. There is only one map (Midnight Mayhem) for this mode and has a 15 second spawn time.

Battlefield Heroes has a class system, which has been reduced to three basic classes: the Soldier (a mid speed, mid health mid ranged weaponed medic), Gunner (a heavy weaponed, high health slow class), and Commando (a low health, speedy, snipe and knife specialist).

There are several vehicles in the game, all patterned after real vehicles of the Second World war. Included are two “light tanks”, in the style of the M4 Sherman and the Panzer III/IV. Wheeled Vehicles are also in game, and are patterned after the Kubelwagen and the Willys Jeep. Finally there are two aircraft, which are also made to look like the Messerschmitt Bf 109 and the Supermarine Spitfire. All vehicles have passenger slots, the tank with passenger space in the turret, the wheeled vehicles hold three passengers, and the aircraft with a slot on each wing. All passengers, except the driver, can fire their normal hand-held weapons, and use abilities, from inside the vehicle.

Players can be awarded achievements by a mission system which allows missions to be completed in order to get valor points (which help you buy items in the store).

Players can also buy a currency called “Battlefunds” off the main website to buy in-game items such as clothing, emotes, experience and Valor point boosts, healing bandages, vehicle-repairing wrenches, “boosts” that increase the amount of valor points you get, or weapons that last either for a period of time, or forever.
