Battlefield Heroes Beta Put On Hold
Senior Producer James Salt has given word that EA will be halting the closed beta of their free-to-play cartoon shooter for the time being. This is so that they can work on some things on the server-side, polishing up what they call "the backend."
We have also been working hard on the parts of the beta that aren't the game. Sound weird? Let me try and explain: You know the old saying about icebergs being 10% above water, and 90% below? Heroes is a little like that. There's the 10% game part you can see, and the hiding 90% is what we call the 'backend'. The backend does a lot of things. From running the website's features and looking after the items you have, to collecting the results from each Heroes game and matchmaking players into games.
The game's beta session is expected to be reopened sometime early next year.
Eagerly waiting to try out this cartoon shooter?
