EA is expanding their Battlefield series again, with a free to play mashed up game with BF2 maps and BF Bad Company 2 classes.  We will see it hit the web next spring expect for those who are signed up and will be accepted to the closed beta.  This is not the first free Battlefield game, though the implication is that this will be a more serious game than Battlefield Heros.  It may also bring back some old players of the Battlefield series upset with the release of BF: Vietnam, BF2 and BF2142 in such quick succession.  Check out a teaser trailer by visiting The Tech Report.

“What do you get when you combine the most popular maps from Battlefield 2 with the classes and weapons from Battlefield: Bad Company 2? A new game from the developers of the free online shooter Battlefield Heroes. Like the cartooney take on the Battlefield franchise, this latest edition will be free to play online. To remove any doubt about that fact, EA is calling this one Battlefield Play4Free.”
