Battlefield 1 is nice and all, but it’s not quite the same as the glory days of Battlefield 1942. So one modder is doing what modders do best: giving the iconic FPS a HD remake.
A first version of the Battlefield 1942 Remaster Project is due out early November, with a final release out sometime next year. The idea is to completely overhaul the game’s textures, increasing the base ones to 4096×4096 resolution, adding a new skybox, new particle and water effects and better shaders and shadows.
You can see the initial efforts below. It’s mostly 1942‘s desert maps, since that’s the bulk of what’s completed right now. But eventually all of the original maps will get redone, and it should look a treat at LANs once it is.
You can keep in touch with the project over at ModDB.
