Battlefield 2142 (abbreviated BF2142) is a first person shooter PC game using a modified engine of Battlefield 2 set in the 22nd Centry, during a new ice age. Battlefield 2142 was released on October 18, 2006 in the US and October 20, 2006 in the EU. Currently, according to EA, there have been over 1 million rounds played since its release.
By early 2138, the world's six factions were heavily fortified, ready to battle over the world's remaining land and resources. Expecting an invasion by the Pan Asian Coalition (PAC) into the agriculture-rich plains of Nothern Africa, the Europian Union concentrated its resources along the Mediterranean, ready to assist the Union of Africian States. A foray by two PAC battalions into Egypt seemed to confirm their suspicions, but the attacks were merely decoys, meant to distract the world from the PAC's primary objective, to destroy the military might of the EU's premiere units still located in Europe.
Following the defeat of the EU army in Europe, the stage was set for the Pan Asian Coalition military to force its way into the EU-occupied African mainland. In February 2142, the EU formed 'The Mediterranean Wall', a line of defenses along the North African coast from Morocco to Egypt. Meanwhile, the Pan Asian Coalition was drawing up a series of deception plans under the code names Kupalo, Dazhbog and Perun. These exercises were designed to preoccupy and divide the EU forces in preparation for the PAC's primary mission, Operation Motherland, a comprehensive, multi-pronged assault on the African continent.
