An Australian site by the name of Kotaku is reporting that certain regions of the world will not get the opportunity to play Battlefield Heroes. Take a look:
If you were looking forward to trying out DiCE's Battlefield Heroes, the free-to-play game announced by EA earlier this week, think again. EA Australia has informed us that the game will not be available to audiences outside of the US and Europe.
Which, last time I checked the atlas, included Australia.
Considering the game will be downloadable, I'm not exactly sure how the publisher will enforce this, but I'm sure it'll find a way.
EA was unable to explain why the game won't be released outside the aforementioned territories, but the words "for the moment" were tossed around, so we may see the title eventually. Just not right now.
More news as we get it, but my guess is EA wants to trial the free-to-play model before throwing it out to the world at large.
Remember, any news right now isn't final and many aspects of the game, including where it will be available, will likely change in the coming months.
