EA now has 25 million registered Play4Free accounts worldwide

EA’s move into the freemium market appears to be working, with the company boasting yesterday that it now has a total of 25 million registered players across all Play4Free titles. Of course, that number is far less impressive if those people aren’t actively playing, but that hasn’t stopped EA from patting itself on the back and calling the number a “remarkable achievement.” For those keeping score at home, that’s 25 million registered players combined in Battlefield Heroes, Need for Speed World , Battlefield Play4Free, Dragon Age Legends, Battleforge and Lord of Ultima .

Battlefield Play4Free engages hostiles in Spring 2011

Following a tease earlier this week, EA has announced Battlefield Play4Free this morning, a freemium title that will support 32-player online warfare. The game will activate in the spring of 2011 but, if you just can’t wait, you can enlist early and test out the closed beta beginning November 30. Aesthetically — and, apparently, in tone — BP4F appears to be a departure from EA’s other freemium warfare title, Battlefield Heroes , which has a cartoony, colorful nature (though the two game will share a single “battlefunds” wallet, confirms Ben Cousins of developer Easy, an EA Games studio)
