What is Battlefield Heroes?
To compete with the tons and tons of free online first person shooters that have been cranking out, like “FEAR Online,” “Combat Arms,” and “Guns,” EA threw out “Battlefield Heroes” to not only compete, but to appease the throngs of Battlefield fans who were still disgruntled from Battlefield: Bad Company not being released on PC. I, being one of these people, was happy to see that EA had provided some sort of compensation. The game is a cartoon shooter, and is totally free. Its (STILL) in closed beta *sigh* but I was lucky enough to get an invite key earlier on. Regardless, there’s been an update recently, and with it came a coupon for 200 BattleFunds. Nice. Seeing as I don’t really want it, I’m going to give it away, along with an additional one I managed to dig up. Thats right… I’mgettin Read on to find out how to get the coupon!
Battlefield Heroes has been updated, fixing a TON of all the issues and adding a load of new features I’ve been wanting to see. Read on for ALL the updates (plus how to get a coupon for 200 BattleFunds (BF’s).
So, What are these Updates, exactly?
Battlefield Heroes has been in need of a friends system. The only thing similar to it before was a really useless box on the home page saying “Join a friends game! Type their name here,” which always, always returned an error. Grh. Now, you can add friends, and everyone gets a profile page, displaying achievements, weapons, and even your character”s clothing. Nice. Of course, “Groups,” the name for the stereotypical clans, guilds, etc. etc. And with a friends system comes a Leaderboard, meaning that if you are the best player EVER, everyone will know about it. You can now search for other people as well, a feature which was attempted before, but didn’t work out for some strange reason. Thats about it, on the friend respect.
Battlefield Store Updates
The store has only allowed users to rent items previously. Now, at the right price, you can buy items perminantly. Cool. This keeps me from buying a ton of items, losing all my money, and then taking a week break from the game, only to come back and find myself broke and itemless. For now, however, this is only good for Battlefund appearence items and emotes, so unless you’re willing to pay for the items in cash, you’re sstuck. Lastly, there is now a coupon system out that gives users the opportunity to find discounts, credits, and even weapon unlocks on various sites or sweepsteakes.
