Battlefield Heroes players may notice some strange looking humanoids walking around in-game, now that werewolves and vampires have been added to the mix.
However, these humanly-challenged characters will only be around for one month.

DICE has changed the item pricing for Battlefield Heroes, which has reduced the cost of real money on items, but has upped the cost to rent or buy in-game currency.
All non-cosmetic items, like improved weapons, can still be purchased with BattleFunds (real money) which has been reduced in cost, but Valor Point (earned) have been upped and the item rentals are no longer available for a month, just three days.
According to Ars Technica, a player would have to participate in 50 matches per day to be able to keep a weapon using Valor Points – which will result in players spending more money or grinding more to earn said points.
There’s more through the link, and over on Eurogamer.

EA has announced that Battlefield Heroes has hit the 2 million registered players mark.
To celebrate, the Heroes of the Fall update and a new map are on the way 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, battles taking place on the bridges and crossings, and alleyways and channels can be used to sneak up on enemies.
Starting today, EA is accepting proposed names for the new map over on the official website, where players can submit a proposed name for the map, and possibly have it selected.
Full thing is posted below.

Dice has released some information regarding upcoming changes to the Gunner in Battlefield Heroes.
Looks like shields will be shareable with teammates, the explosive keg will also slow enemies down, and frenzy fire will also heal the Gunner.
Loads more information is through here, as well as instructions on how to try these changes out on the PTE before it all goes live.

Update: Someone done a booboo. As pointed out in this BH tweet, “We were misquoted in the @IGNcom report yesterday. The average Heroes BUYER spends $20, not the average PLAYER. Not all players spend money.” Thanks, f1r3storm.
According to this IGN piece, Battlefield Heroes now has more than 1.5 million players.
Great stuff. The bit EA’s interested in, however, is the fact that, on average, each player has now spent $20 on microtransactions.
Using out amazing Ubiquity calculator, we see that BH players have already spent $30 million on clothes and weapons.
Which is completely bonkers. Looks like Dave Perry was right. Hit the link for more stats.

EA has announced that DICE’s free-to-play shooter Battlefield Heroes has one million players signed up globally to play.
“The team is really proud to have hit one million registrations at this early stage,” said Ben Cousins, general manager, Battlefield Heroes Team. “Creating a character and gameplay experience that is totally yours is what sets this game apart – your hero can be anything from a bazooka-toting pirate, a grenade-throwing ninja or even a mime assassin.”
It just launched today so if you want to try it out, head on over here to get in on the fun.
Press release is through the jump.

Patrick Liu, lead producer for Battlefield 1943, has said that the franchise is not going “kiddy” as some assumed with Battlefield Heroes, and will instead swing more towards the “core” crowd with upcoming titles.
“I wouldn’t say it’s a certain future, to go broad – maybe it’ll be the other way around actually, to focus down again to the core,” he told Kikizo. “We have plans, definitely, but I can’t go into them now. A concern that a lot of fans have is that we’re going “kiddy” with Battlefield, which isn’t true. It’s a segment right now, but it’s in no way a certain future for the franchise.”
Liu also told the site that single-player campaigns will receive more focus in future games, starting with Bad Company 2.
“Bad Company 2 is going to be even more focused, I think, on single player than Bad Company 1 was. Bad Company 1 was really our first try at making a single player campaign, DICE haven’t made that before. So we learned a lot of things making that game, and all that learning is going into Bad Company 2.
“So we will definitely try to improve and expand on the single player part of Battlefield.”

Battlefield Heroes, EA’s free-to-play WWII shooter, has finally launched.
The game was supposed to happen at the end of last year, but sort of didn’t.
The extensive beta’s over, however, so get involved. Go kill something.

Update: Looks like time told quicker than we thought: EA has put up a post on the official Battlefield Heroes website saying the information is incorrect and the company has “no plans to release Battlefield Heroes on either PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360.” And that’s that.
Joystiq is running a rumour which states that Battlefield Heroes is coming to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
Apparently, EA’s press site now has the game listed under both of those platforms as well as the PC.
Mental, huh? But wait, there’s more: GOONL!NE has noticed that a console version of Battlefield Heroes is due out in June whereas the PC version is slated for September.
Last we heard, BH was due for a “summer” outing.
Time will tell.

Check the screens out here.

Battlefield Heroes’ beta phase looks to be entering a far wider phase today, with CVG now offering 100,000 keys.
