The First World War might be in vogue currently, thanks to Battlefield 1, but Activision’s Call of Duty: World War 2 is obviously hoping to change that. If you can’t wait for that to come out to get your fix of World War 2 games, why not return to Battlefield 1942, which has just received an HD remake thanks to the efforts of modder ScureHD.

The first version of the remaster isn’t due out until November, but ScureHD has uploaded a video showing off the game’s improved textures, which allows for 4K resolution, and adds new particle effects and a new skybox, amongst some other changes.

Most of what’s been updated so far are the game’s desert maps, so they feature pretty heavily for most of the video, but the mod does head for colder climes later on. You can check the whole thing out in the video above. If nothing else, it’s nice to see the game still getting the attention it deserves, 15 years after it was first released.

The final release of the Battlefield 1942 HD remaster is due early next year. For now, you can track its progress over on ModDB.
