The lights are on
EA said today users can play the original Battlefield 1942 on PC through Origin today. The announcement was made after Battlefield 3 Premium surpassing 2 million members worldwide since June.
"When we launched Battlefield 1942 ten years ago, we had lofty ambitions to create a first-person shooter that would push the boundaries of innovation, creativity and design," said DICE VP and general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson. "We evolved the FPS gameplay formula by introducing the world to all-out warfare via land, air and sea."
The promotion runs through March 1, 2013. Head over to Origin to check it out.
Nice! Even though I own way too many multiplayer games, I can make room for a free classic.
No thanks EA, I will avoid using origin if I can help it.
This game is great. Too bad Origin sucks.
Its very cool to go back in World War 2 with Battlefield 1942.
I'm going to have to download this :)
well, its cool, origin... well
Downloaded. Whoo Hoo!
Are people still playing the Desert Combat mod? That would be a big reason for me to come back to this after a 7+ year hiatus.
Cool! I've never played the original Battlefield 1942; I'll have to check it out sometime when I can pull myself away from Halo 4.
A free game that expires in a year?
I might get it, but Origin.
A FREE game is a FREE game.
I cant wait to download this
