Battlefield Heroes beta opened again

Battlefield Heroes, EA's free multiplayer shooter, has been opened up for beta testing again, according to an article by Eurogamer. According to the Battlefield Heroes website, the servers will be up again "some time" today.

During the time that the beta was (temporarily) closed, new content was added, and some game features were improved. In some of the development blogs on the Battlefield Heroes website, new customisation options are mentioned in the changes since the last beta, as well as the points system and several other updates.

The beta should already be available to those who previously had a beta key, and for those who don't: you can sign up for an EA account, and then hope that you get a key sometime soon. According to the Battlefield Heroes website, keys will be sent out as follows: "Firstly, everyone still on the waiting list from the first Beta phase" and secondly "everyone else, including those of you who sign(ed) up using our form".

Battlefield Heroes is aiming to be massively popular, firstly by having low graphical requirements (only requiring a 1 GHz CPU, and a 64MB graphics card), and secondly by being free. However, that's not entirely clear – the core game is free, but EA make the money through advertising on the game website and on the frontend of the game, as well as any 'extras' for the game. That could mean, for instance, new character clothing, extra ammo holders, or other accessories would cost (real) money.

Check out the links below if you're interested in the beta, although don't be surprised if you don't get a beta key straight away.
