Today the Battlefield Heroes team announced some of the new features coming to the multiplayer shooter. They also provided the first screenshots of a new map called "Coastal Clash."
"Coastal Clash" is a "infantry-focused map" that takes place in and around a windmill. That's only one of the things they're working on, though. Here's the full list of features in development, revealed through the BF Heroes website:
Add your friends so you can always see when they're on-line. From your friends list, you'll be one click away from directly joining them.
They're back! See how you stack up with thousands of other players and fight your way to the top. There's a whole range of different stats you can look up and compare.

Each group also has its very own, unique leaderboard, so you can compete with just your friends.
