As part of the Tenth Anniversary special for Battlefield, they are giving away Battlefield 1942 for free!

That's right, the original one! It has full mod support, so you can put it on, and then add the desert combat mod so you can have the most intense helicopter flights while killing legions of bots at the same time.

Again, this is free - you click the link below, then launch your origin client to add it to your games list.

It is about 1.2 Gigabytes in size.

Link to the store with 1942

Click above, then add 1942 :) Although it may mention it's in the demo category, it is the full game. Yipee!

Desert combat you say, whats that you also say?

Well, it was a modification of the game originally made to make the game be in modern times. The team was eventually hired and helped out with Battlefield 2.

You can download the Desert combat mod by following this link, dated 2004! Remember you'll need to download the 0.7 client as well there.

Have fun!

Wondering how to install desert combat?
For Those Wondering how to install Desert Combat here is a quick tutorial Go to: http://www.gamefront.com/files/listing/ ... ert_Combat

Download both

Desert Combat Mod v0.7 Full

And

Desert Combat Final Client

You must run v.07 Full first. When installing change the directory from the default one to C:.../Program Files/Origin Games/Battlefield1942

and then install

Do the same for DC_Final (Same Folder)

Now launch 1942 through Origin

Then go into Custom Games, you should see two new games 0.7 and Final (0.8) click on (0.8)

This will load up Desert Combat

Now go to Multiplay then Internet

On the right hand side you will see an arrow under custom game, click 0.8 final and hit update, it will load all the servers for Desert Combat only, if you do not click 0.8 in the filter it will show all game servers for Vanilla 1942 and Desert Combat. Any questions feel free to ask them


Want to play it on a wide screen monitor?

Not sure? You can kick it off and just download it another time though, which is recommended.
