First-person shooting (FPS) games have been gaining popularity ever since they have been introduced. And with faster Internet access speeds and multiplayer modes that can support a host of players playing together, the genre's popularity seems set to grow further.
Battlefield is one of the FPS genre's most recognizable franchises, and you can now get to play the first game in the series for free. In honor of the series's 10th anniversary, Battlefield 1942 is now available as a free download. All you need to do is download the game via EA's distribution service, Origin.
“Since the beginning, the reception to the Battlefield series has been incredible thanks to our amazing fans. Every day, we strive to provide our community with great games and new ways to play as evident with Battlefield 3 Premium. We wanted to thank our fans who have supported us throughout the years with a chance to go back and play the game that started it all.” - Karl Magnus Troedsson, Vice President and General Manager of EA Digital Illusions Creative Entertainment (DICE)
