Battlefield Heroes is the seventh installment in the Battlefield Series and was developed by both DICE and Easy Studios. It is the first game to be released in EA's new "Play4Free" service, though players can spend money to buy weapons and customizations. It was developed to run on all kinds of computers so players with sub-par computers are able to enjoy the game.
The game's two factions, the Royals and Nationals, were once great friends. During the Olympics, however, the Royal Nation accused the National Homeland of cheating during a track cycling contest. Controversy arose and the Nationals made fun of the Royal's King moustache, leading in the Royals to declare war against the Nationals.
Battlefield Heroes keeps the core gameplay of the Battlefield Series while also introducing its own unique additions to the series. To combat unfair games, Battlefield Heroes uses a matchmaking service to match players of similar skill level to prevent unbalanced matches. Unlike previous installments, the game is in third-person view.
Like previous installments, Battlefield Heroes utilizes a class based system, featuring a total of three classes.
- Commando - A recon type character, having low health compared to other classes.
- Gunner - The slowest class, yet possesses the greatest amount of health compared to other classes and is able to carry heavy weapons.
- Soldier - The all around-class, having equal amounts of health, speed, and armament compared to other classes.
Battlefield Heroes features many of customization options, so as to suit their characters appearance to their preference. While some items are class specific, others are theme specific to events being used to promote them, as well as time limited events.
- Characters can be dressed to look like Haggard or Kirilenko from Battlefield: Bad Company 2.
- The Medal of Honor (2010) character "Dusty" makes a cameo appearance as an Easter egg.
- The Hell Trooper gear set may be a reference to the helghast from the Killzone series.
