ABOUT THE GAME: 

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 math 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.

FEATURES:

• New Titan Gameplay – Massive airborne warships dominate the skies,
bristling with firepower. As the first all-new game mode to the
Battlefield franchise, teams must work together to bring the enemy Titan
crashing down to earth.
• 22nd Century Warfare – Battle Walkers roam the land while Gunships own
the air. On the networked battlefield, every soldier is an army.
• MySoldier – With over 1000 combinations of equipment, every soldier is
unique – customize your soldier to match your play style and the situation
at hand
• Unlock the Future – Battlefield 2142 boasts five times the number of upgrades in BF2, with more than 40 ranks and unlocks.


Battlefield 2142 is rated “T” for “Teen” and carries an MSRP of $49.99. For more information, visit the game’s official site at
