News bugle VG24/7 reports that Battlefield Heroes, EA’s free to play spin-off of the Battlefield franchise has just hit 7 million registered users. With the game coming out 19 months ago, that’s an average of 368,421 new users each month, which is even more than Kieron’s mum. Of course, free-to-play games always achieve ludicrous user numbers, but even so this is noteworthy. Read Jim’s aging Eurogamer review of BFH here, or read about the in-game 7 million user celebrations and watch an old yet steadfastly impressive trailer-cum-theme-song below.
Basically, for this week only any Battlefield Heroes players that log in will receive a pack containing 77 bandages, 77 Battlefunds and 77 wrenches, and the shop’s hosting some similarly time-restricted offers- for 777 Battlefunds you can get a 7 day XP boost, a 7 day VP boost, 777 tonics or a 7 day stamina boost.
ANYWAY, on to the amazing business of this trailer. I mean. Wow! Anybody who fondly remembers Boiling Point as a game bold enough to have a theme song, this is for you.
