It says it's on the demo page, but it works. You also get the popup by simply logging into Origin

Might be a dumb question, but is this for the full game or the demo?

I own the original, but when I tried asking a CS rep to register the game they said they didn't have 1942 on their list of games.

Glad it's back! Thanks OP!

Is this just multi-player? Or is there a solid single player *game* there?

Sweet, hopefully they'll add the expansions at some point.

Thanks!

Thanks Op! I had this years ago but it's walked off since then.
"Just a heads up: we're gonna have a superconductor turned up full blast and pointed at you for the duration of this next test. I'll be honest - we're throwing science at the wall here to see what sticks. No idea what it'll do. Probably nothing. Best-case scenario, you might get some superpowers. Worst case, some tumors, which we'll cut out. " - C. Johnson

All the Battlefield games are just multiplayer or single player with bots. They only started to campaigns when Bad Company came out.

I hope there's only 1 or 2 responses about how much someone just HATES using Origin.

Please don't cry about Origin.

Thanks for the heads up. I deleted my fb last year but the offer pops up when you open Origin as M3w said.

I haven't played 1942 in a long long time. This should create some good nostalgia when I get some time to play.

Any news on whether they will be giving the XBLA version away? I guess that doesn't happen, but would be nice. No PC to game on here.

1942 never had a console release.

No real campaign to speak of; just a bunch of "domination" style(ie, capture a flag, hold it for points) maps. You can set up a solo game and play against bots, but they may well be the stupidest bots in any FPS ever.

Doh! Mixed it up with the XBLA one. Not sure of the year. :)

Thanks OP! This is so exciting I put a truckload of hours into this a decade ago for some time and I still played from time to time and now I have no excuse not to play. I really hope they offer the expansion packs down the road digitally, even to be bought I would pay $5 for each happily because the base game is free, secret weapons of WWII is so bad ass lol. Road to Rome was pretty good too.

Thanks, OP!

Please have mod support, I miss Desert Combat - still one of the best multiplayer games of all time.

After the Fall Harvest sale and this, I actually now ambivalent to Origin. After you install, you don't have to run it to play the games.

Damn it for a second I thought it was 1943.
