Battlefield Play4Free isn't just Bad Company Lite, despite it being a free-to-play game, according to senior producer James Salt.
In fact, it's all the bits war veterans love about their Battlefield experiences across the board rolled into one.
"It's kind of the best of Battlefield," Salt told CVG at an EA showcase earlier this week.
"We've taken these classic maps that are all really popular, we've got the micro-transaction and growing your soldier over time aspect from Heroes and then we've got the classes from Bad Company that everyone likes.
"They've been glued together quite well to make a whole new experience."
Battlefield Play4Free was revealed this morning, along with details of the game's features.
EA appears to be pushing the free-to-play approach. Yesterday the head of EA's Easy division, Ben Cousins, said that he wanted gamers to question buying a full priced game and tempt them to spend that lump sum on micro-transactions instead.
