'Battlefield 2142' - v1.40 BETA Patch #3 Available NOW

by Rainier on Oct. 27, 2007 @ 4:59 a.m. PDT

Battlefield 2142 is set in the future, the world is plagued by a second Ice Age, and wars have broken out over the remaining territories. Mech Warrior-meets-Battlefield 2 is the best way to describe it, and it is scheduled for "Fall 2006."

Get the Battlefield 2142 v1.40 BETA Patch #3 off WP (360mb)


  • Added a new map, Highway Tampa.
  • Added an autosave to kit customisations. After you customise a kit and spawn in with that kit, the customisation will be automatically saved until you change it and spawn in again. Note that you must spawn in with a particular kit for it to be saved.
  • Titans will now spawn up to two gunships per side
  • Squad Leaders no longer have to resupply to re-equip destroyed drones


  • Exploit Fix: hardcoded the time limits of Orbital and EMP strikes.
