In Battlefield 1942, you will experience the heat of battle as you heroically storm the beaches of Normandy, drive a tank across the deserts of northern Africa, pilot a fighter plane during the Battle of Midway, command a battleship at Guadalcanal, or parachute and commandeer a jeep in operation Market Garden. It is the only first person, team-based action game that places you in the midst of a raging WWII battle with 35 "machines of war" for you to control.
You’ll arm yourself with the sidearm of your choice and get behind the wheel of a variety of vehicles, ships and aircraft to fight the war on land, sea, and air during some of the most famous and pivotal battles of the Second World War.
Battlefield 1942 features incredibly large and detailed maps that support up to 64 players simultaneously. The fighting in Battlefield 1942 takes place in all four theatres of the Second World War: Western Europe, Eastern Europe, The Pacific Islands, and North Africa. Using most robust 3D rendering engine available, the proprietary Refractor 2 engine, Battlefield 1942 recreates these theatres in stunning detail.
In addition to the multiplayer experience, Battlefield 1942 offers intense single player action. Going against unscripted advanced artificial intelligence bots, you’ll never play the same game twice.
Battlefield 1942 is online, multiplayer gaming at its finest. Be brave and never falter. Your fellow soldiers are counting on you.
