Get more information about the game.
Battlefield 1942 is online, multiplayer gaming at its finest. Be brave and never falter, your fellow soldiers are counting on you.
You will experience the heat of battle as you heroically storm the beaches of Normandy, drive a tank across the deserts of northern Africa, pilot a fighter plane during the Battle of Midway, command a battleship at Guadalcanal, or parachute over Market Garden.
- Machines of War - Other games force you to choose from a machine gun, rifle, grenade, or pistol as you enter a combat zone. Battlefield 1942 also lets you get behind the wheel of 35 historically accurate WWII vehicles and fight a raging battle on land, sea, or air. Pilot a heavy bomber over the drop zone or engage in a dogfight in a swift fighter. Fire the guns of a mighty battleship or prowl the sea-lanes in a silent submarine. Charge across the desert in a powerful tank or transport troops into the heat of battle in an armored APC. The outcome of the battle depends upon the choices you make.
