Battlefield 1942 available for free as DICE celebrate its 10th anniversary


For a moment there I was stunnned, but the Battlefield series really is ten years old now. If you’re an Origin user you can download the game right now, though you can probably expect the servers to be populated mostly by curious players peeking into an old game that’s now free. How many dedicated gamers are still around is anyone’s guess.

But if you find yourself enjoying regular games, do let us know. The Battlefield series has flung itself forward into the modern era and old hands like me miss a bit of World War II action.

Stiff-lipped salutes to VG24/7.
