Yeah. That new Battlefield game mentioned earlier this week? This is it.

EA’s revealed Battlefield Play4Free, a brand new title in the series for PC that will allow you to, well, play for free.

Micro-transactions will pay for it.

The title is “a deep PC shooter featuring signature Battlefield vehicular warfare, sandbox gameplay and intense 32-player online battles.”

The website and trailer, which is below, have gone live. Sign-ups for its closed beta, which kicks off at the end of the month, is under way.

The last P4F Battlefield title was Battlefield Heroes in 2009.

“We broke new ground in 2009 with the launch of Battlefield Heroes; a game that has 6M registered players worldwide. Now we are complementing that arcade shooter with a core, realistic Battlefield shooter experience that fans have been clamouring for,” said senior producer, James Salt.

“Battlefield Play4Free is for serious shooter fans who are looking for a premium — but free — experience that rivals top console titles.”

BF: P4F will be a unique combo of Battlefield 2 and Bad Company 2, with the “most popular maps” of BF2 and “the familiar classes and powerful weapons” of BFBC2.

The game will also link together between itself, Heroes and the upcoming Battlefield 3

It goes live in spring 2011.

    Free ads too, then?

    Or maybe you just have to pay for bullets…

    This could be a similar system to NFS World

    LOL

    There is a map from Battlefield 2. It’s the best multiplayer map in Battlefield history.

    I don’t understand why they never ported it to Battlefield:Bad company 2.

    @2plus2equals5, in the trailer there is the most popular map from Battlefield 2.

    “but why would I want to plat this instead of bad company 2!? ^^”

    Because there are stuff from Battlefield 2 such as planes and the best Multiplayer maps from BF 2.
    You should try it if you like Battlefield on your console.

    “Strike at Karkand”

    FTW! Good times… good times… I spent on that map more than 100 hours… That map was a masterpiece and for me it is the best map in Battlefield history :D

    It was EA’s Winter Showcase, so Battlefield wasn’t exactly the only thing there.

    BFBC2: Vietnam, Dead Space 2 and Dragon Age II were there too.
