Have you ever wondered what Wake Island or Iwo Jima would look and play like with real tropical foliage? Do you love Battlefield Vietnam but you want to be able to relive the classics without having to dig up your 1942 disks?
Now you can!
Available now from Digital Illusions and EA, the World War II Mod for Battlefield Vietnam brings 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.
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.

The WW2 Mod REQUIRES Battlefield Vietnam v1.1 or higher to run.
The WW2 mod is a partial conversion of the original Battlefield 1942 to the updated engine of Battlefield Vietnam. The most popular maps of the Pacific Theater have been transferred to the new engine. This theater comes to life like never before using the overgrowth and undergrowth that made BFV such a hit. All of the characters, weapons, and vehicles have also been redone to make use of the advanced BFV rendering engine. The original BF1942 content married to the gameplay tweaks introduced in BFV combine to create a whole new Battlefield experience.
Mortars add a new dimension to the maps, but the biggest addition are the new flame throwers. These are devestating close range anti-infantry weapons, best used to clear structures or block paths with a wall of flame. They are very effective against scout cars, but are considerably less effective against armoured vehicles.
Levels included in the WW2mod:
Invasion of the Philippines
The levels contain all the vehicles and weapons included in their BF1942 counterparts. All 3 levels are compatible with single-player and Co-Op modes.
The WW2 mod is not compatible with Custom Combat.
