Battlefield 2142 Revive.

Battlefield 2142 Revive brings back EA's cult-classic online shooter.

Battlefield 2142 is back thanks to free, fan-made revival !


This was the game which got me into MP-games and by me concidered still today as one of the best (Battlefield-)games ever, if you love this sort of thing.
I have spend seriously more than 1500 hours playing it. (sick, I know)

Now, thanks to a bunch of die-hard fans, Battlefield 2 and 2142 are back with project Revive, releasing it for free online and letting players take part in the game's signature, 64-player sci-fi battles.

Two years ago EA shut down the servers for Battlefield 2142, so there's no official way to play the future shooter these days. This fan revival sees it live once again, with fully functioning leaderboards, in-game ranks and working servers.

It's rather busy too - in fact, the past two weekends have seen the game clock over 1,000 concurrent players.

Though it's legally grey, Battlefield 2142 can't be played by legitimate means anymore, so the developers are probably just happy to see it live on in some form. EA haven't sent any takedown notices, so it's clear the publishers have (untill now) no issue with the shooter living on for free.

You can try it over on the Battlefield 2142 Revive site, where you can download the launcher. Here's a video of someone playing:

I do encourage you to try it, it's free after all and get a taste of the madness and tons and tons of fun I had in the past and thanks to the revival, have again today !

Iv'e already tried it with a few others, the server's were very sparse and mostly full of cheats, bunny hoppers and just general twats. Also I'm afraid to say the game looks awful now.

Bills bang on, the amount of times we have tried to revisit games from the past you get a couple of days interest then its back to the modern game. I think we all share special memories of past FPS that were awesome at the time but games have evolved so much its only when you revisit the older ones you realise just how much technology has progressed and its never, ever the same experience. Its a real shame but a fact.
