2 Million BF Heroes, Update Next Week

Electronic Arts announces that Battlefield Heroes has crossed the 2 million registered user plateau, also saying that the Heroes of the Fall content update will be released Wednesday of next week for the subscription-free online third person shooter. Here's an outline of the new content, and your opportunity to gain fame and fortune (or at least fame) by naming a new map:

To celebrate this milestone, on September 30, EA will release a free ‘Heroes of the Fall’ update for the game, including a brand new map.

Set against the backdrop of autumn colors, the new map will be infantry-focused and set in a village with dozens of intersecting canals. Intense battles will play out on the bridges and crossings, while sneaky players can use the alleyways and channels to move unnoticed for sudden flanking maneuvers and rear-guard actions.

Starting today, EA is accepting proposed names for the new map at http://www.battlefieldheroes.com. Players can submit a proposed name for the soon-to-be released map, and that name may be selected by the Battlefield Heroes development team.

“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.”

I am also one of the 2 million who signed up for BF Heroes and uninstalled it shortly thereafter.

On the other hand, that 7 year old game, BF1942, still has a decent amount of servers and although it is frustrating as hell when asshats do certain things like grenade spamming and spawn/plane camping, it's still a blast to play.
