Battlefield Heroes - 3rd-person Only, Beta in Summer

A German-language article on GameStar.de has some details on Battlefield Heroes, the just-announced free installment in the Battlefield series of military shooters. These details, uncovered in a German gaming magazine, include word that the game is third-person only with no first-person option, and that there are plans for an open beta test this summer.

Battlefield Heroes is looking more and more like a total ripoff of Fireteam Reloaded.

Don't forget Freedom Fighters too.

I hope they'll make the sequel for it.
Did you miss Kane & Lynch?

That was the 'spiritual sequel' (in so far as it featured similar squad controls anyway).

I wouldn't bash a game for having 3rd person, but I would say that this game sounds less and less like Battlefield every time a new detail comes to light.

If it's not fun and there's no reason to keep playing then EA makes no money. That, above all, is a reason to have high expectations for the game.

You missed that new NFL Street game, eh?

Some of that over-the-should-aiming stuff can work okay in 3rd person on a PC as in games like Splinter Cell. You have a aim button, just like the other Battlefield games, and it zooms in over the should with a reticle. I'd prefer 1st person, of course, but if they do it like that it wouldn't be so bad.

If it has any form of autoaim though, count me out.

I'm looking forward to it. I think it could work out very well actually. As always, we'll see.

Amazing how quick people are to cast aside this game. Like I said in other threads, if the game sucks, then EA automatically fails. If it's not fun and there's no reason to keep playing then EA makes no money. That, above all, is a reason to have high expectations for the game.

I assume they don't mean that it's _all_ third-person, unless they're somehow doing the sniper rifles in third-person, too.

Sounds like Warhawk, which is actually a really fun game.

It must be designed primarily for consoles were 3rd person is often used because controllers have severe limitations on 1st person targeting, unless its 'really' sticky.

Uh, this is a PC-exclusive.

They probably made it third-person to differentiate it from the rest of the BF games and to better convey the cartoony nature of the characters to a more casual audience.

9. Pennies for Bullets Jan 22, 2008, 22:16 Tumbler
 
There has got to be some sort of charge to play this game... I refuse to accept that EA games is making a free installment of this franchise.

I'm betting they'll charge pennies for bullets or something like that.

"come on in, try the game, it's free! I know it sounds too good to be true but...oh you just died, well just click respawn....and accept the $1 charge for the respawn and you're right back into the action, playing for free!!!"

3rd person only? In a shooter? WTF is that. It must be designed primarily for consoles were 3rd person is often used because controllers have severe limitations on 1st person targeting, unless its 'really' sticky.

That means the PC version is most like to be a cheap port. Probly extremely cheap, since its free!
