Desert Combat, der geniale Mod zu Battlefield 1942 ist nun nach diversen Problemchen endlich auf den Mirrors dieser Welt eingetroffen. Quasi noch warm, schreit der Wüstenmod geradezu nach einem Download.

EIn kleines Problem gibt es da allerdings noch: 591 MB Dateigröße dürften selbst für hartgesottene Fans nahe der Schmerzgrenze sein - aber was tut man nicht alles um up-to-date zu sein. Selbstverständlich findet ihr das File auch bei uns, wie immer einfach rechts auf Downloads klicken.

An der neuen Version scheint überhaupt alles etwas größer geraten zu sein, wie ein kurzer Blick auf das nachfolgende Changelog beweisen dürfte:
