[edit] Game Information

The year is 2142, and the dawn of a new Ice age has thrown the world into a panic. The math is simple and brutal: The soil not covered by ice can only feed a fraction of the Earth's population. Some will live, most will die. In Battlefield 2142, players will choose to fight for one of two military superpowers in an epic battle for survival, the European Union or the newly formed Pan Asian Coalition. Armed with a devastating arsenal of hi-tech assault rifles, cloaking devices and sentry guns, players will also do battle using some of the most imposing vehicles known to man. Massive battle Mechs wage fierce combat on the ground, while futuristic aircraft rule the skies. When facing one of these new behemoths, players will need to use their wits and an arsenal of new countermeasures like EMP grenades to level the playing field.

Team play features allow up to 64 players to enter the action on the front lines as part of a formal squad, or work behind the scenes in Commander Mode to direct the strategic assaults of their teammates. With in-game success, players increase their rank and unlock awards, including new weapons, medals and more, delivering the most comprehensive and flexible persistence in the Battlefield universe to date.

[edit] Widescreen Support

[edit] Version 1.50 and above

Native support for widescreen resolutions was added in the 1.50 patch.

While Battlefield 2142 Update 1.50 adds widescreen functionality, it is not available by default. Widescreen mode is currently a beta feature and has some minor graphical issues regarding the weapons in game, however these do not affect gameplay. If you would like to activate Widescreen functionality please use the following steps:

  1. Locate your Battlefield 2142 shortcut
  2. Right-Click and select Properties
  3. At the end of the Target line you should see +fullscreen 1
  4. After this add +widescreen 1
  5. You will now have widescreen resolutions available in Video options in the front end

[edit] Pre 1.50

Battlefield 2142 pre 1.50 patch does not have native widescreen support. To force a custom resolution, edit your game shortcut so it looks like the following:

"C:\Program Files\EA Games\Battlefield 2142\BF2142.exe" +widescreen 1 +szx 1680 +szy 1050

Edit the numbers after '+szx' and '+szy' to match your desired resolution. '+szx' is horizontal and '+szy' is vertical. In this example, the game would launch in 1680x1050.
