STOCKHOLM - From the makers of the hit arcade shooter Battlefield Heroes comes an all-new entry in the free* to play market, this time featuring photo-real characters, environments, weapons and maps. Electronic Arts Inc. today announced Battlefield Play4Free, a deep PC shooter featuring signature Battlefield vehicular warfare, sandbox gameplay and intense 32-player online battles. With its advanced graphics, polished production values, depth and realism, Battlefield Play4Free takes the genre to the next level and is positioned to compete with top console titles. The game goes live in spring 2011. Players who wish to get in the game sooner can register today for the closed beta at battlefield.play4free.com which launches on Nov 30.

“We broke new ground in 2009 with the launch of Battlefield Heroes; a game that has 6M registered players worldwide. Now we are complementing that arcade shooter with a core, realistic Battlefield shooter experience that fans have been clamouring for,” said James Salt, Senior Producer, Battlefield Play4Free. “Battlefield Play4Free is for serious shooter fans who are looking for a premium – but free – experience that rivals top console titles.”

Combining the most popular maps from Battlefield 2 with the familiar classes and powerful weapons of Battlefield: Bad Company™ 2, players have access to 16 vehicles including the Mil Mi-28 attack helicopter, its nemesis the F35 VTOL jet fighter, the massive Russian T-90 main battle tank, and the hard to catch LSV light strike vehicle. Players progress through the game to learn new combat skills, and earn in-game currency to spend on a massive array of devastating weapons and equipment.

For more information on Battlefield Play4Free, please visit battlefield.play4free.com. Players can follow the game on Twitter® at: www.twitter.com/bfplay4free or become a fan on Facebook® at www.facebook.com/bfplay4free.

iunno, its up to the mods.  i thought it would be helpful if all of the information of the game was easily available to everyone in one post instead of on the second page of a topic that was discussing what the new game was going to be.

It looks interesting, as long as there's no options to buy all the unlocks etc with a credit card or anything like that.

Is this a browser based game?

They do have options to buy stuff but it won't give you an advantage over anyone (just clothing/weapon skins)

BF Play4Free to have Battlefield 3 integrations
A new video with an interview with Battlefield Play4Free developer James Salt has been found. One interesting note is at the end (3:51), Salt says there will be some integrations between Battlefield Play4Free and Battlefield 3.

Also, a full BF Play4Free FAQ is posted on the Battlefield Heroes site. The FAQ also mentions Battlefield 3 connections.

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

How does Battlefield Play4Free relate to Battlefield 3?
Like our connections with Battlefield Heroes, we are working on deep connections between Battlefield Play4Free and the upcoming Battlefield 3. If you plan to play Battlefield 3, we would advise you get into Battlefield Play4Free at the earliest opportunity!!

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

IGN also notes that achievements will unlock content in Battlefield 3.

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

...and if the series' core fans needed any encouragement, the fact that achievements in Free 4 Play will unlock content in the imminent Battlefield 3 will surely be all the incentive they need.

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The video is partially in Dutch, but the interview answers are in English.
