EA’s free-to-play online shooter, Battlefield: Heroes, hits press beta this fall, but we got to take a turn yesterday at EA’s Studio Showcase. I can tell their spin-off direction is working, because I’ve never touched a Battlefield game and I already feel inclined to spend hours running around in goofy outfits gunning down the enemy faction.
