Wanna play Battlefield Heroes? Sure ya do. We tried it a few weeks ago, and we totally dug it. Well, don’t get your knickers in a bunch – DICE is planning to launch a closed beta soon enough, but this’ll be a “closed” beta in the Gmail or Facebook sense, meaning they want as many people to be in it as possible. Says Executive Producer Ben Cousins:
We’re going to have a very large closed beta almost to the point where every hardcore gamer in the world will probably be able to get a key if they want to – it would just be within a closed beta so that we can control the size of it to a degree.
Cousins says they aren’t expecting to have a huge splash release, but that they’ll have built up a large player base by the time the game leaves beta.
