This coming Friday Digital Illusions and EA will be releasing the World War II mod for Battlefield Vietnam. The 300mb mod will bring three Pacific Theatre maps from Battlefield 1942 into the Battlefield Vietnam engine. But these aren't straight ports of the original maps. Instead, they make use of all of the upgraded features of the Battlefield Vietnam game engine. Of course we will have it available on our fileserver network, read more for details...

Grab your sniper rifle and crawl through the thick grass and dense tropical foliage of Iwo Jima. Scoot around Wake Island blaring the Battlefield 1942 theme from your Willy’s onboard radio. Use the new flamethrower to clear defenders from the airfield during your Invasion of the Philippines. All this and more.
