It's placed in category Demo but its full version
Thanks. I guess I can give this oldie a try.
Origin is Steam of EA ?????? Hmm I never had an account over there
Do yourselves a favour and grab the Forgotten Hope mod for this. Adds realism and a fair bit of additional content and maps. Then check out the tournaments at Forgotten Honor or World at War.
I can confirm there are still people playing, though I don't find it very fun. The vehicles aren't very fun to control and if you're not in a vehicle, you're screwed.
By the way, for those of you who didn't have an Origin account before this, be sure to sign up for their mailing list. They often give out coupons, and one recent coupon was superb: $20 off any game purchase. This effectively meant you could get one of several games for free or something like Mass Effect 3 for only $10. It's a little bit of spam, but it's often worth it.
Battlefield™ is celebrating its 10th Anniversary. Now available on Origin as a digital download for the first time, experience Battlefield 1942™, the game that started it all.
