Multiplayer games have always been productions for me that I looked at from afar. I’m seriously incompetent and I don’t feel like I’m progressing in these games. But when it comes to Battlefield games, things suddenly change. I don’t know why, is it because I’m trying to capture the “Only in Battlefield” moments, is it because I’m seeing my Medic classmates get to the top by recreating me all the time, or because I feel like I’m in an action movie by seeing explosions and buildings collapsing attracts me. I think they have it all. In a way, every match can offer an entertainment that I did not expect Battlefield games.
Naturally, these moments came to my mind when I saw the promotion of 2042. It didn’t take long to find myself downloading old games. And realizing that those games are still like stones. . . I wanted to remember all the games of the series both on this occasion and because Battlefield 2042 was featured on the July cover of Oyungezer. Let the memories come to life, the place smells of nostalgia. .
Battlefield 1942 (2002)
Sweden-based Digital Illusions CE, or as we know it, Battlefield 1942, developed with 14 people by DICE, is not only the first game of the Battlefield series, but also the Conquest game mode, magnificent intro music, class separation (Assault, Medic, etc.) that we see even in the last games of the series. had features. The game set in the Second World War, when it comes to Battlefield, the free, sandbox gameplay that comes to mind, drew the players from its first year and opened the door of the journey of the name Battlefield to the present day.
The Last Token – Battlefield 1942
1942 had mod support with servers supported up to 64 people. Alongside numerous mods, DICE also released two expansion packs in 2003, The Road to Rome and Secret Weapons of World War II.
Battlefield Vietnam (2004)
Battlefield Vietnam, the second game of the series, had an order called asymmetric warfare, in which Vietnam and America had different equipment and vehicles. Players on the American side had more heavy weapons and tanks, while players on the Vietnam side could spawn at different spawn points with anti-tank equipment. DICE’s purpose in designing the game in this way is that it wanted to make as true a reflection as possible of the Vietnam War, which took place between 1955 and 1975.
Battlefield 2 (2005)
Battlefield 2, one of the best games in the series, is also the first Battlefield game set in modern times. Unlike the previous two games, the production, which uses the Refraction 2 game engine, came up with many innovations that we would find strange if we did not see it in the last Battlefield games. What were these? Many things such as the ability of the Medic class to revive the dead soldier, the arrival of the Squad (Squad) system, achievements such as badges, medals, as well as the rank system and new equipment as you rank up. The most important thing, of course, is that our character can run now. Yes, we couldn’t run before. . .
In Battlefield 2, the size of the same map also varied according to the number of players. The game, which includes seven different infantry classes, received three expansion packs called Special Forces, Euro Force and Armored Fury shortly after its release.
Battlefield 2: Modern Combat (2005)
Modern Combat, which was released less than 6 months after the release of Battlefield 2, is the first Battlefield game to be released on consoles. Although a stand-alone game independent of Battlefield 2, it was released as an expanded, console version of Battlefield 2. Since the console was exclusive, the servers supported a maximum of 24 people.
Battlefield 2142 (2006)
Taking the theme of the past and present in its previous games, DICE this time focused on the theme of the future and released Battlefield 2142 just one year after Battlefield 2. Set during the war between the two superpowers, the European Union and the Pan Asia Coalition, the game featured weapons, equipment, and an destruction-based Titan game mode of the opposing Titan’s Titan, which we have not seen in previous Battlefield games.
Battlefield 2142 is also the first Battlefield game where you can get your opponent’s tag when you kill the opponent with a knife. A year later, the Northern Strike expansion pack was released, which brought three new maps to the game.
Battlefield: Bad Company (2008)
Coming only to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, Battlefield: Bad Company featured a “true” singleplayer mode for the first time in the series. Also, Bad Company was developed with the first version of the famous Frostbite game engine. This meant that buildings, trees and objects could be destroyed. Bad Company had Gold Rush and Conquest game modes.
Battlefield Heroes (2009)
Battlefield Heroes, which is very different from the other games in the series, was a free third-person camera angle game. With its Fortnite-like graphics, EA’s game, which was released to try other things, was put on dusty shelves in 2015.
Battlefield 1943 (2009)
Battlefield 1943, another Battlefield game not coming to PC, was set during the Second World War, as the name suggests. Developed with the Frostbite engine like Bad Company, the game did not have any singleplayer mode. In the game, which had three classes (Rifleman, Infantry, Sniper) like Battlefield Heroes, the servers could have a maximum of 24 players.
Battlefield: Bad Company 2 (2010)
Bad Company 2, one of the popular games of the series, with a sales figure of 12 million, continued the story mode of its predecessor. But the main focus of the game was of course multiplayer, and here too, all the benefits of Frostbite were used. Conquest, Rush (it first appeared in this game), Squad Rush, Squad Deathmatch and Onslaught multiplayer modes, the game had a total of 50 ranks.
Bad Company 2, 9 months after its release, got the Vietnam expansion pack that the players will love very much.
Battlefield Play4Free (2011)
Battlefield Play4Free, which appeared before us when EA released the free versions of its popular series, was developed with Refractor Engine 2 and included popular maps such as Strike At Karkand and Gulf of Oman. However, like EA’s other free games, Play4Free passed away in 2015.
Battlefield 3 (2011)
Battlefield 3, which debuted only 1.5 years after Bad Company 2, managed to show all kinds of visual and physical advantages brought by Frostbite 2 in both singleplayer and multiplayer. So much so that it managed to sell 5 million copies in the week it was released.
Team Deathmatch is featured in this game for the first time since Battlefield 1942. DICE designed a system where you can find multiplayer matches through the browser, not the game. In the system called Battlelog, you can also see personal statistics.
With Battlefield 3, EA also introduced the very popular (!) Premium model to us. Battlefield 3 Premium, which includes five additional packs (Back to Karkand, Close Quarters, Armored Kill, Aftermath, End Game), debuted at €50.
Battlefield 4 (2013)
Two years later, we came across with another game set in modern times EA and DICE: Battlefield 4. The sequel to Battlefield 3, which takes place six years later, is called “Levolution”, especially the destruction of the big skyscraper on the Siege of Shanghai map or Paracel Storm. The map also came to the fore with certain changes during the match, such as the storm.
Although there were serious problems on the multiplayer side especially at its release and the comments were “same as Battlefield 3” by the players at first, Battlefield 4. When we look at it today, it is a game that many love. It has a Premium version like the previous game and has five additional packages (China Rising, Second Assault, Naval Strike, Dragon’s Teeth, Final Stand).
Battlefield Hardline (2015)
Battlefield Hardline is a game made by Visceral Games, which we know better with the Dead Space series, which also made the End Game expansion pack of Battlefield 3. Far from the classic military war theme of Battlefield, police vs. The game, which proceeds from the thief formula, instead of tanks as its theme, featured cargo cars, police cars and unprecedented gadgets such as grappling hooks. In addition, different game modes such as Hotwire, Heist, and Blood Money were also seen for the first time in this game.
The game, which also has a scenario mode, did not receive good reviews from both the press and the players.
Battlefield 1 (2016)
DICE, on the other hand, was working hard for the next “main” Battlefield game. The series has long passed in modern times, and now the players wanted to go back to the old times. After that, EA and DICE came up with Battlefield 1 and got pretty good reviews. The game, which successfully handles the atmosphere of World War I with its atmosphere and sounds, also included in-game elements suitable for the theme such as riding a horse, riding an airship, gas bomb, bayonet attack.
For Battlefield 1, which was also released in Turkish, 4 additional packages called They Shall Not Pass, In the Name of the Tsar, Turning Tides and Apocalypse later met us.
Battlefield V (2018)
DICE (or EA) must have said, “While we’ve made such a successful game, let’s make a World War II theme,” two years later Battlefield V met with us. It is similar to Battlefield 1 in many ways, and it was the first time we saw the ability to build trenches, barriers, and trenches in V, especially during the match. In addition, the battle-royale-like Firestorm mode was also seen for the first time in the series.
Battlefield 2042 (2021)
With Battlefield 2042, which was introduced last month, we will be returning to modern times and even a little beyond in October. Let’s take you here for all the details we know about the game.
Among all these Battlefield games, which is the most special Battlefield game in your heart? I couldn’t decide though. . .
