Along with the 1.4 update, EA releases a beta version of its map editing tools for the multiplayer WWII shooter.
Electronic Arts has today released the next incremental update for Battlefield 1942 and a set of map editing tools for the game. The 1.4 patch includes a number of gameplay enhancements and bug fixes, plus two new weapon models for the Russian and Japanese assault rifles, a new blood effect, and other visual improvements. The map editing tools are available in open beta form, and EA is asking for feedback on them. The editing tools come in a 12MB file and require the 1.4 update. There's a 54MB sample map pack that may be helpful in learning how to use the tools. The files are available for download from the links below.
