The free download comes in celebration of Battlefield’s ten-year anniversary and just as Battlefield 3 Premium passes 2 million worldwide members since June.
When we launched Battlefield 1942 ten years ago, we had lofty ambitions to create a first-person shooter that would push the boundaries of innovation, creativity and design,” said Karl Magnus Troedson, Vice President and General Manager of DICE in an EA press release.
We evolved the FPS gameplay formula by introducing the world to all-out warfare via land, air and sea. Since the beginning, the reception to the Battlefield series has been incredible thanks to our amazing fans.
Every day, we strive to provide our community with great games and new ways to play as evident with Battlefield 3 Premium. We wanted to thank our fans who have supported us throughout the years by restoring Battlefield 1942 for a digital re-release and give everyone a chance to play the game that started it all.
The free download of Battlefield is available at origin.com/demos. The next Battlefield 3 update, Battlefield 3: Aftermath, will release to Battlefield 3 Premium members on November 27 for PS3 users and December 4 for Xbox 360 users.
Non-premium members will get it on December 11 for the PS3 and December 18 for the Xbox 360.
