BATTLEFIELD HEROES GOES TO THE MOON WITH A NEW MAP, WEAPONS, AND OUTFITS

One small step for man, one giant leap for laser-wielding Heroes. Battlefield Heroes™ , the hit free-to-play arcade cartoon shooter from EA, is blasting off to the moon this April 18 th, 2012 with all-new space themed content. Players can strap on their moonboots and start bouncing around the moon map, ’Lunar Landing’. Using low gravity to traverse the environment and outsmart enemies, gamers can jump over objects and even base jump from a vantage point to take down the enemy faction and lead their team to victory. The ‘Lunar Landing’ map brings a whole new experience to Battlefield Heroes, fundamentally altering the traditional gameplay mechanics of the third-person shooter. To play the all new ‘Lunar Landing’ map, visit www.battlefieldheroes.com and sign up to play for free.

In addition to the new map, Battlefield Heroes fans can now customize their Hero with brand new space explorer outfits, or gear up in full spacesuits before deploying for battle on the moon. Players will also have access to laser-based weapons for the first time in series history, allowing them to swap out their traditional guns and gadgets for high-powered plasma blasters to dish out damage.
