    Battlefield Patch 1.2 update \and/ expansion


    1.2 Patch
    The 1.2 patch is in progress. We had originally hoped to release it as early as today, but some last minute problems are preventing that. Expect the patch very soon.


    Battlefield 1942: The Road to Rome
    Electronic Arts is excited to announce the expansion pack, Battlefield 1942: The Road to Rome for the PC. The multiplayer-focused expansion pack will give players more of what they have grown accustomed to with the original Battlefield 1942 title, including more maps, more vehicles, and more fighting forces.

    The Road to Rome will focus exclusively on the largely underpublicized Italian and Sicilian campaigns of WWII. Players can choose to fight on six new maps including Operation Husky (Sicily) and the battles for Anzio and Monte Cassino. Each map comes with highly detailed environments such as Italian houses, Mediterranean trees and even the Monte Cassino Monastery.

    Controllable vehicles are the heart of the Battlefield 1942 experience and The Road To Rome will feature eight new vehicles in addition to the more than 30 in the original title. These include the German BF-110 and British Mosquito twin-engine fighter-bombers. Also debuting are Italian and new British and German tanks and anti-tank guns. New hand-held weapons include the Italian Breda assault rifle, British Sten SMG and bayonets on rifles.

    Staying true to the Battlefield 1942 massive multiplayer legacy, The Road To Rome will support up to 64 players (on select maps) and give them the ability to fully experience World War II combat. Playing as several infantry classes, gamers can control many weapons available to the Axis and Allies and command numerous land vehicles, ships and aircraft. Two new fighting forces include the Free French Forces and Italian forces.

    Currently under development by Swedish-based Digital Illusions. Battlefield 1942: Road to Rome is scheduled to be released in early 2003 under the EA GAMES brand. The original Battlefield 1942 is required to play The Road to Rome.



    I think the holdups could be due to EA spending more time trying to add on and sell more than making the first issue correct... how long has this game been out? a month or two? what a joke.

    anyhow.. i hope for EA's sake the patch fixes the numerous bugs in the game.
