Battlefield Online is licensed from Electronic Arts, and is a Chinese online game version of the classic Battlefield™ franchise. The game breaks away from traditional FPS gameplay, utilizing jet fighters, tanks and even aircraft carriers as the main instruments of warfare, while firearms and ammunitions function as auxiliary weaponry. The game allows players to not only compete as small teams in Team Death Match and Capture mode, but also to participate in large-scale combat with up to 100 players in a 50 vs. 50 battlefield. Additionally, Battlefield Online features different infantry classes. Players can select from four classes including "medic," "antitank soldier," "engineer" and "sniper" when joining a combat or before re-spawn.  The battlefields in the game are portrayals of real-life battle settings and even the parameters of the military vehicles in the game are based on reality as well.

Mr. Dewen Chen, Changyou's president and chief operations officer, commented, "The FPS game market is an established market in China, and players demand for diverse and unique gameplay experiences is expanding. Battlefield Online contains unique features like large-size battlefields and military vehicles that we believe will appeal to more advanced FPS players. Battlefield Online is Changyou's first FPS game, through which the company will further enrich and diversify our game portfolio and attract more FPS players with innovative gameplay, ultimately further expanding our user base."
