In Battlefield 2142™, players choose to fight for one of two military superpowers - the European Union or the newly formed Pan Asian Coalition -in an epic battle for survival.
Armed with a devastating arsenal of hi-tech weaponry, including assault rifles, cloaking devices and sentry guns, players will also take control of the most lethal vehicles known to man. Massive Battle Walkers wage fierce combat on the ground, while futuristic aircraft rule the skies. When taking on this futuristic armor players will need to use their wits and an arsenal of new hi-tech countermeasures like EMP grenades and smart mines to level the playing field.
This game could be considered the real culmination of the efforts that went into making BF2 such a great game. It's a leaner, far more effective game that leaves little room for overpowering aircraft and vehicles. The infantry game is FAR more effective, and the maps seem better scaled to handle focus on infantry or armor combat. You have four classes to choose from, which might seem smaller compared to BF2 until you find out that they function much better as a whole. Multiple unlocks are available for class specific items, global items and squad leader only items. None are required to kill effectively or well, but they do give you an edge. Ranks are far more varied and deep compared to BF2, you will rank up quite often in this game, which is a nice change of pace. The Titan mode also mixes things up, making things a cross between Domination and close quarters infantry combat, all on a hovering carrier of death to everything below it.
Currently I am on active duty, and looking for a few good men...or chicks.
Edit: I will add Active duty to the OP as people post, hoping to set up a scheduled list of play nights. Our own server really isn't neccesary. Clan could be nice as well, if anyone is interested. Please post *Soldier* name if you want to be on the list.
Game on soldier!
Northern Strike Expansion Pack is out!
Three new maps provide the setting for the Booster Pack. High up in the Alps the EU uses launch pods to assault a PAC Titan docking harbour in the map Port Bavaria. Bridge at Remagen, the scene for one of WWII’s major battles, is once again the setting for intense battles as both sides fight to secure the bridge. Finally, night has fallen when the EU launches their assault on the city in the Liberation of Leipzig.
Battlefield 2142™: Northern Strike introduces two new vehicle types. The heavy IFV Goliath is a massive, slow-moving firing platform available to the EU. It is used to provide cover, as well as health and ammunition, to nearby infantry. The fast-moving hovering light IFV Hachimoto, available to the defending PAC only, is an efficient vehicle killer when staffed by a well coordinated pilot/gunner team.
A great, and best of all cheap expansion! It adds worthy new maps and some interesting new, kick ass vehicles to the mix, as well as giving each class a few extra unlocks, a few of which are almost a must in my layouts! Pick it up now!
