This past weekend at the Digital Life Design Conference in Munich, Dr. Gerhard Florin, the Executive Vice President of EA Publishing, revealed a few details about their forthcoming title Battlefield Heroes. The cartoon-style shooter marks EA’s move into a new business model.

The game itself is expected to be much more accessible than other titles from the Battlefield series.
