The scope of war is ever-changing. New technology, tactics, and ethics
are always altering the way soldiers fight and the way armies approach
battles. Just ask Electronic Arts--it thinks troops shouldn't be able
to shoot while jumping.
The update comes in two flavors, a full patch
(366.2MB) that will update a fresh install of BF2 to v1.2, or an incremental patch
(83.5MB) that will update v1.03 or later to v1.2. Several bugs,
including "Prone Spamming" and the "Sprint Exploit," have been fixed,
and several weapon ratings have been adjusted. While players can no
longer jump and shoot at the same time, they can now reload while in a
full-blown sprint. A full list of adjustments is available at the links
The PC first-person shooter is the sequel to Battlefield 1942,
but it updates the time period to the modern era. The game was expanded
in November 2005, when the Special Forces
expansion was released. A Battlefield 2: Modern Combat spin-off was
released on the Xbox and PlayStation 2 late last year, and Xbox 360 and
PSP versions are currently in the works.
Battlefield 2, developed by Digital Illusions, is rated T for Teen and
retails for $49.99.
