The legendary Battlefield 1942 launched one decade ago and changed everything. Join our week long celebration of the Battlefield series, full of retrospects, classic trailers, legendary concept art, and great price promotions.
It’s going to be a great week for Battlefield fans in all of our channels. Later today, we will repost one of the classic trailers from Battlefield 1942 with comments by its original creator, DICE Senior Video Producer Roland Smedberg. Back in 2002, it was extremely unusual for game trailers to feature actual in-game footage the way we did.
Each day until September 28 will feature something new from the rich history of the Battlefield series. If you’re an old time Battlefield veteran or a fan interested in gaming history, you don’t want to miss this.
Download remastered anniversary artwork
To celebrate our 10th anniversary, we have custom created a few other pieces of artwork as well that we want to share with you. Feel free to download these to adorn your desktop or website. There’s the 10th anniversary logo plus four never before seen desktop wallpapers in full HD resolution. These were created here at DICE by upscaling select scenes from the classic Battlefield 1942 intro. Just click the thumbnails below to download the 1920×1080 versions. Enjoy!
Announcing The Wake Island Dog Tag Challenge
Help commemorate the launch of Battlefield 1942 by revisiting Wake Island (in Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand). Next week, we launch the Wake Island Dog Tag Challenge, where we task PC players to compete against Xbox 360 and PS3 players to reach a specific number of game rounds on this legendary map. Stay tuned for the full details on this challenge soon.
Chat with Battlefield 1942 veteran Lars Gustavsson next Tuesday
Few people at DICE know more about the Battlefield series than Lars Gustavsson. He has worked on almost every Battlefield title since the start, and Codename Eagle (the spiritual predecessor to Battlefield) before that. Come Tuesday, you will be able to chat with Lars Gustavsson on Origin.com and ask him anything about the history of Battlefield. We will get back to you soon with the exact timings for this rare opportunity.
Week long celebration
This is the first decade of Battlefield, and this is just the beginning of our celebrations. Stay tuned for more happenings on our Facebook channel, YouTube, and Instagram. Each day until September 28th will celebrate our proud Battlefield heritage. Battlefield has been truly life-changing for us at DICE, and we would like to take this opportunity to thank our fans from the bottom of our hearts. We couldn’t have done this without you.
