Battlefield 1942 Summary
DICE has announced on Twitter that to celebrate the two millionth Battlefield Premium member, Battlefield 1942 will be free on Origin.
The Battlefield series may be on its way to those awkward teen years, but creator DICE is twice the IPs age at 20. General manager Karl Magnus Troedsson is celebrating at GDC Europe today.
Since it debuted the series has "served" over 50 million players, and the studio is "in love" as ever with their "core franchise." A 'Premium Edition' is rumoured to commemorate hitting 10.
Why play in 1942 when you can go back to The Great War and be a Doughboy fighting the Kaiser?
A new total conversion for Battlefield 1942, appropriately called Battlefield 1918, radically overhauls the game to include that period's equipment and vehicles, while shifting forcus to artillery, trenches, relatively slow vehicles and brand new teamwork.
