Old Battlefield games re-killed after EA’s legal warning

All good things must end, and all that we love will turn to ash some day. The fan-run Revive Network, a community project to support and restore online play to several defunct EA games (including Battlefield 2, Battlefield 2142, and most recently Battlefield Heroes) is closing its doors after receiving a warning letter from the monolithic publisher. They had a good run of 3 years…

Feature: The best Battlefield game

Have You Played… Battlefield 2?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. I liked Battlefield 1942, but I loved Battlefield 2. Trading World War 2 for a modern day setting, BF2 maintained the formula of large maps mixing open terrain and tight urban spaces with vehicles aplenty.

After Eight Years, Battlefield Project Reality Hits 1.0

I haven't played Battlefield 2's Project Reality mod (or any Battlefield 2, really) in ages, but this is still a very exciting occasion. Eight years. That's how long it's taken one of the best-known mods out there to be deemed fit for 1.0 status. It's been more than playable (DOUBLE PLAYABLE) for probably longer than I've been alive, though, and it's proven succulent with delicious…

New Ravaged Trailer Flips Trucks, Birds

Remember Ravaged? Judged on looks, it's the result of a┬áscintillating, sensual night of passionate discussion about how it'd be really cool if there was a multiplayer shooter that mixed Battlefield's raging multiplayer with RAGE's battlefields. And now, via the natural miracle that is game development, here we are. The new trailer comes as part of something big 2Dawn is "about to kick out the door"…

The Very Important List Of PC Games, Part 1/5

Here at Rock, Paper, Shotgun we take the business of PC gaming entirely seriously. There is no smiling, or making rude noises at the back of class, there is only important gaming fact. So when it came to compiling an exhaustive list of the greatest, most important PC games of all time, we realised that the only way we could articulate the importance of the…

Battlefield 2: Eh, What Patch Now?

The Battlefield series is a bit patchy (HA! DO YOU SEE!) Heroes is a little too "lite" for my tastes, and the rather more realistic-looking 1943 has been delayed into after Christmas. We're due Bad Company too, but I wonder if the focus on environmental destruction will dilute the multiplayer manshoot. Personally Battlefield 2 was always my favourite, but I must admit I've not picked…

Battlefield 3/Heroes/1943/Bad Company 2

So many battles, so little time. EA/Dice already seem busy alternately delighting and outraging their fanbase with the much-delayed casual shooter Battlefield Heroes and sorta-remake Battlefield 1943, so dropping an apparent Battlefield 3 into the mix seems like a special kind of madness. Then again, perhaps a full sequel, expanding rather than simplifying or repeating the remit, is the way to win back men's love.…

Monday Morning Stoopids

Occasionally we have this quiet tinge of regret about games RPS wasn't around to comment on as they happened, those occasional moments when much of PCdom focuses joyfully on one incredible thing. Battlefield 2, for example. Vast levels, mega-jets and crazy physics offered a world of possibility for those players prepared to spend hours poking and pulling at every facet of it. F'rinstance:
