For those looking for the next PC fix in gaming

Battlefield Heros is currently running thru its second phase of beta testing

interest in keys can still be registered at

though you will need an EA account.

Free to play is novel considering its EA but "micropayments" sounds addictive. The concept of buying perks still doesnt sit entirely well.

A little bit more on the game

This looks like the last use of the Refractor 2 engine, which also featured in all of the Battlefield series from 42 thru to 2142. 

As good as some of these games have been, so has the long list of support fixes to known errors.

Most of the die hard BF series fans will be eagerly awaiting the later releases of 1943 and Bad Company 2 which will use the new Frostbite engine.

32x32 km maps with destructible buildings, vegetation and limited land movement like craters being formed.

Frostbite will be geared for multicores and whilst it'll support DX9, its target is DX10+ - so start saving for the i7 cores and X58 mobos

I heard they where going to release it winter time, that was in NZ's last winter.  The US winter has come and gone and it's still not out.  I wonder if this will ever be released, especially since the web advertising model is on unstable ground in these troubled times.

Still saying that,  I want it, when it comes to the public.
