Eve of Destruction: Classic is a free modification of the popular Battlefield 1942 game by DICE/EA, based on the Vietnam war. No other military conflict is comparable to those dramatic years of the 20th century. Most rumors spread about the Indochina and Vietnam War are not honest, even though it was the best documented war in history. No other military conflict was ever so controversial, pointing to an unloved fact: our enemy was not the only source of evil, the evil could be found within ourselves. The "Eve Of Destruction" mod is a tribute to the U.S., ARVN and Vietcong/NVA soldiers who fought and died in Vietnam, and also to the Vietnamese people.

Eve of Destruction Classic, one of the longest active mods for Battlefield 1942, announces the coming v2.40 full version preview due early 2012.

Time for an update soldiers! We've finished the 222th map and still are wondering if there's a limit in Battlefield 1942 . So if you've finished eating BF-3 and want to come back to the old-school games you may test the fun of EoD classic with it's new features.

Some days ago we've reported on the new ingame maps and ike's new surfboard for Charly.
Some weapon sounds have been overworked and of course a lot of maps have got AI updates and improvements.

Well and here are some new areas to run riot:

Operation Hump
Created by Jackson.

It's a remake of Dice's map Hellendoorn and has been completely rebuild. There are planes and helicopters on a closed airfield so noone can use them and it's a pure tank and inf map. We think Jackson doesn't love the pilots very much .

Snipers never had been preferred in EoD cause sniping can destroy any gameplay fast and easy. So fans of the crosshair will get their thrill in this map.

Bong Son Valley
Based on an idea while watching a movie this map was born.

The Bay
We've got Halong Bay, Danang Bay and Baytown, so we needed a new name for this bay. Cause we didn't find any it's simply called.

Fall of Saigon
The end of Vietnam war was reached with the fall of Saigon on April 30, 1975. The map just shows a small part of the city and is 100% fictive.

An Lao Valley
Time has come to overwork An Lao Valley. Here's the result:

We've got lots of ideas and still are working on some things so release will not be in 2011.
Early 2012 seems to be realistic and it will be a full version cause it's too much for a patch file.

Awesome! Are only the maps and bugfixes new, or can we expect new features?
