Hi all Comrades!

First excuse me please about my mistakes in English language cause English is not my native language. Thank you very much.

As you know many modders and mappers are always working hard on BF1942 and its Mods in 2013 also (yet).
And many of us would that BF1942 let be free for all people after the fateful date of 1st March 2013.
In this eventuality BF 1942 and its Mods could be alive.
And "sherries on the cake" if EA Games would let free Battlefield 1942 for all after 1st March 2013 it should be also a very good image and publicity for EA!

Please EA chiefs managers do a good act for us:

Please let BF1942 via Origin full free for all gamers after 1st March 2013.

Thank you very much about your future answers (responses)!

Best regards!

Hi Stefan!

I think you are also OK with me because for the excellent BF1942 Mod FHSW=Forgotten Hope Secret Weapons too.

If we want Battlefield 1942 and its Mods continue to live in the future the only reasonable solution is to let Battlefield 1942 (Origin version) free to download for all people. It is very important for our new potential young players I can say.

That day or the CD version of Battlefield 1942 will not be re-published alas Battlefield 1942 and its mods may die unfortunately.

Best regards!

Hi all and for you "JinxSwe"

My question is:

"After 1st March 2013 all people could be (or not) to continue to download BF1942 free via origin?".

Because if you go to the following link:

http://www.battlefield.com/battlefield-1942 [battlefield.com]

It is written just after "FREE DOWNLOAD" :

"THIS OFFER IS BEING ISSUED TO YOU FOR PROMOTIONAL PURPOSES ONLY AND DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A CREDIT, CHARGE, DEBIT OR GIFT CARD. FREE DOWNLOAD EXPIRES MARCH 1, 2013. REQUIRES ORIGIN ACCOUNT, ACCEPTANCE OF PRODUCT AND ORIGIN END USER LICENSE AGREEMENTS AND INSTALLATION OF THE ORIGIN CLIENT SOFTWARE (WWW.ORIGIN.COM/ABOUT). IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON THE EA ONLINE SERVICE, INCLUDING AVAILABILITY CAN BE FOUND AT WWW.EA.COM/2/SERVICE-UPDATES. ONLINE SERVICE FOR THIS TITLE MAY BE DISCONTINUED AND IS NOT GUARANTEED."

This offer "Battlefield 1942" free seems to stop from 1 March 2013?

Best regards!

Hi all comrades and for you "OOF14346"

Please see this link:

http://www.bf-games.net/downloads/category/40/desert_combat.html [bf-games.net]

WARNING! If your PC's OS is Vista, Windows7, Windows8 you DO (MUST) install "As an administrator".
Then after do not forget to restart your PC.

I can say all is running fine on BF1942 CD version and on BF1942 Origin version.

Best regards!

But do not forget the exact subject of my topic I created here:

"BF1942 Free or not before 2013 March 1st?"

Thanks, I hope that solves my problem. And to answer your question, it's been free for months now. If people miss out...well, that's on them.

The game won't expire, but after 1st March, new people won't be able to get it for free.

That is also a fundamental question because:

If after 1st March 2013 new people won't be able to get BF1942 via Origin for free.
Is downloading Battlefield 1942 will always be available (possibly paid for 10 $ for example with its addons Italy Campain and secret Weapons of WWII) or download link will disappear forever?

Unfortunately if download link will disappear after 1st March 2013 the big risk is that BF1942 and its Mods could be die in the future.

If also unfortunately battlefield 1942 CD version will not be re-edited in boxed again => BF 1942 and its Mods could be die also in the future.

It will be a drama (dramatic) for all BF1942 communities because also in 2013 good Mods are always developped by modders and mappers.

For example FH ; FHSW; FHR=Forgotten Hope Revisited....Battlegroup42....Eve of Destruction...

I think it will be a fatal error from EA (also for its reputation and image) if EA will not continue to let Battlefield 1942 download-able after 1st march 2013.

Best regards!

Yes hopefully at least everyone who's downloaded so far will still be able to continue playing it.
Unfortunately people who still don't know BF1942 is free to download on Origin only learn about it after the 1st of March they'll never be able to get it...
So we can't get new players after that date, which isn't good.

Hello Comrades!

Very good news also today!

In this day of 2013 March 7th and "Battlefield 1942" is still free to download for everyone!

Long as it lasts!

@Ky Soto

Yes it is a full version of BF1942 and you can also install many Mods you want.

And now on many servers players with BF1942 Origin version and players with BF1942 CD version can play on the same server.

Thank you to TUIA &Co for that!

For example FH is an excellent Mod about WWII.

If you want help about FH we can help you at the following link:
