EA has announced that Battlefield Heroes, a free-to-play cartoon-style action video game, has hit the 2 million registered players mark. To celebrate the achievement, EA will be releasing the "Heroes of the Fall" update and a new map on September 30.
"Along with this new map, 'Heroes of the Fall' includes a slew of changes including upgrades of the Gunner class and improvements to the friends system," said Ben Cousins, General Manager, Battlefield Heroes team. "We've also added a brand new ranking system for the game – players can earn cool new titles for their heroes as they play – showing everyone on the battlefield how dedicated they are.
"Set against the backdrop of autumn colors, the new map will be infantry-focused and set in a village with dozens of intersecting canals. Intense battles will play out on the bridges and crossings, while sneaky players can use the alleyways and channels to move unnoticed for sudden flanking maneuvers and rear-guard actions.
"Starting today, EA is accepting proposed names for the new map on the official website. Players can submit a proposed name for the soon-to-be released map, and that name may be selected by the Battlefield Heroes development team."
