EA rips off TF2?

Well, I couldnt resist to not post about this but it seems our friends from Electronic Arts have just announced a new ‘free’ ad supported game called Battlefield: Heroes (huhum). The next Battlefield game will be created as far as we can see with Cell shading (TF2 alike) and according to EA, the game will be easy to pick up and play.

Electronic Arts: “We put a different twist on this Battlefield game going with the cartoon-style graphics and gameplay,” said EA DICE senior producer Ben Cousins. “There’s something here for all types of players–be it our core Battlefield fans or casual gamers. With the new online model, we will continually add new content to keep the game fresh and keep players engaged, while integrating player feedback in real time. As a game developer, it is such a cool new way to make games.”

That new content won’t be free, as Electronic Arts notes that the game will generate revenue through advertising and micro-transactions.

No further screenshots at the moment except the one on their upcoming site.

Let the raid begin!
