Another new interview on Battlefield Heroes (http://www.battlefield-heroes.com/) has been released today by VideoGamer (http://www.videogamer.com/), this time with DICE's executive producer Ben Cousins. Check it out:

VideoGamer.com: What kind of audience is Heroes going for, the hardcore shooter fan or something completely different?

BC: I think the hardcore shooter fans will be there anyway. They'll at least try it. It's 250 MEGS, it'll run on their PCs of course because they'll have pretty high end PCs, and we really hope that they get in and really drive the early adoption of the game. The main in terms of numbers part of the audience will probably be younger men between the ages of 10 and 15 years old. Maybe they haven't yet got a high end console, maybe their brother's got an Xbox and they don't get to play on it too much, and they've got a laptop or a desktop that they do their homework on. They like to hang out with their friends after school online, maybe they're in Club Penguin or Habo Hotel, but they've grown out of that and they want to get into an action game.

But there's also the older guys in their late 20s and 30s who maybe they're returning to gaming, they haven't got much time, they've got kids and a job and they just want to have something that they can sit down and, maybe they remember Battlefield from years back and they want to get back into it. So there's a possibility for quite a broad audience.

It just so happens that I have two younger brothers who fit into the first category perfectly.
