Battlefield Heroes, EA’s popular free-to-play arcade cartoon shooter is blasting off to the moon beginning today 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.
