Experience the excitement of modern combat in Battlefield 2

Battlefield 2 (confusingly the third game in the series) is a first-person shooter set in a fictional conflict between superpowers in Asia and the Middle East. The game focuses on squad tactics and team play rather than solo action. 21st-century weapons and vehicles are carefully simulated to give the game a realistic feel. Although the multiplayer servers mainly shut down in 2014 there are enough unofficial alternatives available that it's still possible to find a game. View full description

Signing up for battle

If you've played other games in the Battlefield series the core gameplay of Battlefield 2 will be familiar to you: two teams battle over a modern map with the dual objectives of capturing control points and killing enemy characters. Each death reduces the opposing team's number of spawn tickets (essentially 'lives') while capturing control points prevents the enemy from spawning in those areas. Use up all the other team's tickets capture all the control points or be left with the most when the timer runs out and you've won. A variety of different classes are available as are a range of vehicles and weapons.

The battle continues

If you like your shooters tactical more concerned with area control than individual glory Battlefield 2 is well worth checking out. It's aged a little as any ultramodern game does but there's still a lot there.

The game brings the intensity and excitement of Battlefield 1942 into the modern era with enhanced team play and the latest, most technologically advanced vehicles and weapons systems available to man.

In Battlefield 2, players will choose to fight for one of three military superpowers: the United States, the Chinese, or the newly formed Middle East Coalition. Armed with the latest modern weaponry, players can take control of any of the game’s 30+ vehicles to engage in major conflicts with over 64 players in some of the largest online battles on the PC. Additionally, persistent character growth allows players to rise through the ranks and attain the ultimate rank of General.
