BATTLEFIELD HEROES CELEBRATES THREE YEARS OF GUNS, EXPLOSIONS AND HILARIOUS VICTORIES!

EA – Guildford, UK - Today, Battlefield Heroes™, the hit free-to-play cartoon shooter, is turning three-years-old! To thank the game’s 12 million-plus loyal fans worldwide, EA is releasing new content, enhancing game features and giving away exclusive, free items to all players.

The brand-new map, “Fortress Frenzy,” will have players fighting for victory on a small island, where the only way on or off is over six bridges located on each side of the isle. This will be an all-out war of bullets, explosives, powerful abilities, fire-proof underpants, magic and land vehicles for ultimate island control. Also part of this anniversary celebration, Battlefield Heroes is expanding their mission system with more opportunities to earn Valor Points and Experience Points as well as introducing the Treasure Chest to give players special rewards that appear at random upon killing an enemy.

And to really get this celebration off the ground, players who log in between June 25, 2012 and July 1, 2012 will receive two free Party Packs*: one Royal and one National. Each Party Pack will include a Battlefield Heroes Birthday Shirt, a Tricycle Emote that lasts for 3-days and a new Treasure Chest Key. To claim their free Party Packs, players can log in at www.battlefieldheroes.com then look in the “My Stuff” menu and select “Rewards.”

Battlefield Heroes brings classic Battlefield™ action to the masses with fun cartoonish graphics and gameplay that caters to players of all skill levels. Battlefield Heroes is easy to pick up and play and has vast character customization and sticky online features so gamers can spend hours building up their characters to win the war.
