A fan-made project sees the revival of Battlefield 2142.

The servers for Battlefield 2142 were shut down back in 2014 and if you’ve been pining for the decade-old shooter ever since, you’re in luck.

Battlefield 2142 Revive Project has brought back the game along with rankings and leaderboards.

According to PCGamesN, over 1,000 concurrent players have logged on during the past two weekends.

So far, EA hasn’t issued a takedown notice, so whether they’re happy to let it be or they just haven’t gotten around to it yet is anyone’s guess, but let’s hope it’s the former.

Battlefield 2142 Revive Project is live now and you can download it for free on the website.
