The year is 2142 and the dawn of a new ice age has thrown the world into a panic. The soil not covered by ice can only feed a fraction of the Earth's population. The maths is simple and brutal: some will live, most will die. 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.

About First Strike with 8 comments by TALON_UK on Apr 12th, 2014

GREETINGS TROOPERS!

This is just a quick update to address a few issues that have been thrown up by recent events. First up as the title of this post states, we must say goodbye to GameSpy at the end of May. This will have an effect on many games with a multiplayer component as a lot of them used the GameSpy facility to gain access to servers. This unfortunately includes our base game BF2142. Exactly what this means for us as a mod for that game is still unclear. Sure First Strike has a strong singleplayer component, but it is intended primarily as a multiplayer game. So we'll have to look into the ramifications of what effect this has on us, and whether there is a way to circumvent the need for the GameSpy server facility and keep our ability to be a server based multiplayer game.

In addition to this our forum server provider just closed down resulting in our forum being down for a few days. Some people I think have panicked (due to the timing) thinking that just with the news of GameSpy going down that the mod instantly died from the shock or something. Rest assured this is not the case. Our forums are now back up hosted from another location.

Though to be fair this fear is understandable to some extent, as things have been quite quiet at First Strike towers for the last few weeks. After the flurry of intense development time getting FS 1.6 out the door we have had a few issues which have hampered development lately, seems if it is not one thing it is something else. However we are still working on it and will soon be getting updates out to you which will tweak the latest map released from the mod for balance, and soon release the additional map which was promised as a 1.6 release map. Below are a few shots of some of the last assets being developed for this map to add just a little more polish and familiar authenticity to the new environments that you'll get to battle in.

Something which hasn't helped though is the relatively low numbers of players about lately. If you want to see more, come out on-line and support us and get on the server and have a few games. Nothing encourages us to continue work like seeing a good full First Strike server, but s imilarly nothing is less encouraging than seeing empty servers not long after a new release. Head on to the Rebel Defiance server on Sundays at 8pm BST (British Summer Time) for your best chance to catch people in game.

As for future releases of content for First Strike, these are uncertain times, it will all depend on the level of support the mod recieves, and of course what the closure of GameSpy means for us as a multiplayer mod. Hopefully we'll hear something positive on that front. Lets just get all the games in that we can until we find out.

Until then...

See you on the Battlefield Troopers!

It's on Origin for $20 NZD (This link is for NZ buyers) so I'm pretty sure it should also be available in the US and for even less.

Store.origin.com

And anyone wondering the game was released in 2006 so it's pretty much old PC friendly.

I'm just wondering if it's multiplayer only if there's a good amount of material for single player.

Hey guys, thought I should let fellow Battlefield fans know:

I have created a petition to EA to make Battlefield 1942 either free to play or able to be bought via digital download.

I would highly recomend this game to anyone who likes First Person Shooters.

It has an amazing Squad system, and the Squad Control is great.
The graphics are cool, it's future-istic kill'em all combat, and is GREAT for online play.

The only downside is that the Single-Player gameplay stinks, and could have been greatly improved upon, though I guess the main focus of the game is Multi-Player.

So, if you have a good internet connection, and enjoy intense combat, you would love this game.
