Battlefield 1942 Released for Free via Origin
To celebrate the Battlefield series’ 10th Anniversary and the 2 millionth Premium Member, DICE and EA are giving away the one that started it all, Battlefield 1942. The official Battlefield Twitter account confirmed this earlier this evening and if you head over to the Origin website you can see 1942 listed under the demo section as being free to play.
It is just the base game without the expansions Road to Rome or Secret Weapons of WWII and it doesn’t appear to have received any updates with this free release. We are stuck with a maximum resolution of 1280×960, but it is worth it to play this game which has had such an influence over online shooters.
