Le site officiel de BF1942 fait un nouvel update à propos de ce fameux patch 1.2 et des serveurs linux. Pour le patch, nous ne savons pas quand il sortira mais à présent nous savons ce qu’il y aura dedans. La liste des changements dans le gameplay est impressionante avec notamment une crosshair qui flashe quand vous touchez quelqu’un et des grenades moins efficaces contre les chars. [–SUITE–]
