by Rainier on March 22, 2007 @ 12:54 p.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."

This is the BETA version of the patch! Be aware this may effect your gameplay in a negative manner and is NOT an official release of a patch.

Because of the major change to the anti-ship missile tracking system we would like all our players who enjoy flying gun ships and transports, or who enjoy shooting them down, to give us your thoughts on how good or bad the change is. With this change our goal is to implement consistency into ship to missile encounters across the board. With this in mind we are releasing a beta of the 1.25 update early specifically for feedback on this change. Please visit the forums at www. or your local major forum to give feedback to us on this change.
