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.

I think there's a text document somewhere in C:\Program Files\Herp-de-Derp-de-Derp\Battlefield 1942. I'm not sure where it is inside that folder, though, so have fun...
