Battlefield Heroes conscripts 7 million
Free-to-play online shooter celebrates milestone number of registrants with free in-game items and currency.
While EA is busy prepping Battlefield Play4Free for release later this year, its original military-themed free-to-play online shooter, Battlefield Heroes, continues to grow. Today the publisher announced that Heroes has now registered 7 million accounts, a milestone that will be marked with in-game giveaways.
Players who log into their Battlefield Heroes account from now until March 15 will receive 77 bandages and 77 wrenches just for showing up. Additionally, they will be credited with 77 battlefunds, about $0.55 worth of in-game currency. The Battlefield Heroes storefront is also offering a deal tied into the promotion, as players can get seven-day stamina, experience and valor point boosts, and 777 tonics for 777 battlefunds.
Battlefield Heroes' business model allows players to earn valor points through playing the game, which can be spent to earn temporary access to new weapons. Alternatively, players can spend real-world cash to purchase battlefunds, which confer permanent use of the items.
