The Game Evolution Presents: Evolution of Battlefield Games. This video showcases the History of the franchise from the classic PC games to Battlefield 2042 (2021)


0:06 Battlefield 1942 (2002)
0:28 Battlefield 1942: The Road to Rome (2003)
0:51 Battlefield 1942: Secret Weapons of WWII (2003)
1:15 Battlefield Vietnam (2004)
1:35 Battlefield 2 (2005)
2:05 Battlefield 2: Modern Combat (2005)
2:29 Battlefield 2142 (2006)
2:49 Battlefield: Bad Company (2008)
3:12 Battlefield 1943 (2009)
3:37 Battlefield: Bad Company 2 (2010)
4:00 Battlefield 3 (2011)
4:22 Battlefield 4 (2013)
4:55 Battlefield Hardline (2015)
5:28 Battlefield 1 (2016)
5:47 Battlefield V (2018)
6:13 Battlefield 2042 (2021)

My first contact with the game I think was with the demo of Battlefield 1942: Secret Weapons of WWII from a magazine CD. Then directly to battlefield 2: Modern Combat on the Xbox and the port of the 360. I had the chance to play 2142 thanks again to a multiplayer demo from a magazine, I have a blast playing controlling the small airship going from objective to another one being the driver.

After 2142 I have the rest and enjoyed well except the last two entries. Battlefield 4 is my favorite and I hope 2042 is similar to that one.

All the previous titles show gameplay and 2042 is the in engine cinematic trailer. Why even make the video lmao. Just wait until Sunday to get a true comparison.

Thats how they looked.

Not even remotely, i played bad company 2 the other day. his settings are absolute trash. It makes it look like complete shit. The same goes for his older games. i have pretty much all of them and 1942 never looked that bad.

Was BF2 the first game to feature self shadowing?

I remember seeing that in pics and vids and never having seen it before and being blown away.

After BC2 the series stopped evolving if you ask me. Even visually, BF3 was such a huuuge step up in that department the game still holds up really really well to this day, and that's a 10yo title, other than megascans and recently added RT the game hasn't visually improve that much.

Only single player shown in the videos with either bots or the very first minutes of the campaign with crappy quality settings.

And the latest game doesn't even have any gameplay footage yet.

Bad Company 2 and Battlefield 3 were glorious times. Never had so much fun in a online shooter again.

Battlefield 2042 is bringing some of the biggest maps in Battlefield history. In this video, we take a look back at the 12 largest Battlefield locations of all time, like Dragon Valley from Battlefield 2, Bandar Desert from the Armored Kill DLC, and even the Halvoy battle royale map.

Battlefield has a rich variety of multiplayer maps from its humble beginnings in Battlefield 1942, all the way to the massive Firestorm battle royale map in Battlefield V. DICE senior designer Niklas Åstrand put out a chart on Twitter that listed every Battlefield map in existence ranked by their size. In this video, we’re breaking down the top 12 largest Battlefield maps of all time.

Surprisingly, one game stands out among the series and appears on the top 12 list more often than the others: Battlefield 2 comes roaring in with five maps, whereas games like Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4 each only have one map, such as Bandar Desert, and Golmud Railway!
